First Person, Third Person, Tenses oh My.

OMG and I thought I was done with finishing the first draft of my second book, Kate Unraveled. But OH was I wrong. Now I have to go back and decide do I like the view the story is told from AND to top it off I have to decide what tense.

DAMNIT I don’t know. Can someone else decide that for me…then make the changes….:)

Okay so here is the real question. Do you feel more drawn into a book that is written in present tense or past tense? My book is a romantic suspense novel not sure if that helps you make the right choice or not but there you go.

I’ve never noticed what tense a book is written in but now I’m finding myself completely unfocused at work and going through each book on my kindle to find out.

Who knew this author stuff would be so time consuming on things other than FREAKING writing. UGH. I just want to create beautiful stories….and have someone turn the jumbled mess of words into something glorious that is actually readable. Is that too much to ask?

One thought on “First Person, Third Person, Tenses oh My.

  1. The tense I write in depends on the story. For my New Adult novel about mermaids and mermen, it’s written in present tense. However, my story about angels and demons is written in past tense. I think past tense adds more of an element to the fall of Lucifer thing. I hope this helps! 🙂
