I wrote Sector12 in third person, past tense.
I wrote Isla + Morax in third person, past tense.
I’m writing Wrapped in Darkness in first person, past tense.
Why? Because prior to writing Sector12, I’d always written in first person and I’m not really too sure why I changed. I suppose third person just worked better for that story. I was considering writing Wrapped in Darkness in first person, present tense, but the idea of tagging dialogue with “I say” instead of “I said” was just too annoying to even consider 🙂
But I like writing in first person. It has taken me a while to get used to it after writing in third person for so long. But some of my favourite books are written in first person, so I wanted to delve back into it again.
What tense and POV do you write in? Do you chop and change or remain pretty consistent from project to project?
Edit: Ironically enough, two days after writing this post I started re-writing Wrapped in Darkness in third person, past tense 🙂
