I don’t know about you, but I can’t recall any books I’ve read that are written in present tense. I did read YOU by Charles Benoit, but that was written in 2nd person POV. I think that’s the only reason I want to say it’s in present tense.
Well, my current WIP is in present tense. I didn’t plan on writing it that way, but it just kind of happened. I sent the first few chapters to one of my crit gals and she admitted to not being a fan of present tense, but for this particular story it works. For reference it’s a YA romantic thriller.
So fellow friends, what are your thoughts on present tense. Have you ever read a book written that way? Would you? Why do you think most novels are written in past tense?
