First person, second person, third person.
Past tense, present tense, omniscient.
The choices are endless!
I know some people have a really firm preference about what person and tense they read and write in. But I don’t think I really have one. Or maybe I do, I don’t know. I’ve written in third person and first person but always in past tense. I just prefer it.
Reading wise, I’ll happily pick up anything regardless of the way it’s written… although duel perspective, first person is a little hit or miss. And second person sort of freaks me out… but aside from that, I’m open.
What are your thoughts on the person and tense? What person and tense do you write in? Do you have a preference for what you like to read? Can tense or perspective make or break a book for you?
Let’s have a discussion 🙂
