I’m not sure why or what it is but I am awful at sticking to tenses when writing.
I think I have mentioned this before but I would like to hear from you guys in the comments, please tell me I am not alone!
When I am writing I try to write in past tense but then I slip into present tense without realising and I’m not quite sure why.
I was reading back through the early pages of a story and realised I had done it multiple times, slipping from “I walked over to the window and looked down at the street” to “I walk over to the window and look down at the street.”
It’s infuriating just because I have to spend most of my time on a read-through correcting these simple mistakes.
Anyone else struggle with this or just me? Let me know in the comments below.
