Present or Past Tense

  • Do you ever write in the present or past tense?
  • What do you prefer?

I know most writers write their story in the past tense.

For me, I’d say that it depends on the context. I usually would write in the present tense but when I am writing a flashback or a dream, I would write it in the past tense.

I like both of them for the same reason you said…

I write in present tense most of the times but when doing a flashback then I’d use past tense.

I mostly write in present tense (unless it’s a flashback or something) because it helps me show the character’s thoughts and feelings
