I may begin more stories in the present tense.
Well, maybe not.
But I’ve used present tense in a few stories, and it seems the most natural way to describe heart break. Like, you have to feel it right now or your cynicism and experience get in the way. Maybe.
Could be wrong.
What tense do you prefer to write in and why? How does the tense change the story?
So, here is story number 15 for Story-a-Day May. I’m too tired to think of anything else.
One thought on “Maybe Now”
It depends on the story. Between all my projects its a 50/50 split. Usually, I let the tense choose itself through free writing. However, I have found that first person stories tend to be present tense and third person is usually past, (at least in my own experiences). 🙂
