So, I said in my "Style" post that writing in third person makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. You probably don’t remember that because that post was so long ago, but if you need a refresher, go back and check.

Apparently before I talked about 3rd person, I had another idea to talk about different tenses I liked writing in. You know — past, present, and future tense.

So frick it. We’re talking about this today.

With that outta the way, I wanna bring up a question I've wanted to ask for so long:

What's with the severe hate on present tense?

OK, you can have opinions, of course, and if something's not your cup o' tea, then that's alright. But I’m talking about the people who say nottowrite in present tense at all.

Alright, a lot of literary works are written in past tense, but there are plenty of books who have present tense (e.g., The Hunger Games.)And if a book is written in present tense, that's not a 'mistake' on the author's part like I’ve heard people say. Present tense can be a challenge to create a story in, but it's doable — plus, the reader can feel like they're walking right alongside the character in the story, so you get bonus immersion points.

The one counterargument I heard of this was in the comment section of… some article; I forgot which. And this anti-point basically said: "How can the character possibly be narrating their own life right as they're experiencing it? How are they writing it down?"

Does every tiny little aspect of a story have to make sense? Every little technical detail? OK — the plot, the characters, the world, all of that should be logical and coherent, yes.

But the tense?

I'm just saying, you can give a bit of leeway to that. And besides, I like to think of the author as a little demon in the character’s head that sits and speed-records every event and thought and action, but prefers to write it from the character’s POV instead.

Aside from the past-versus-present tense debate, I think what a lot of people never consider writing is…

… Second person, future tense.

Like you're some fortune-teller informing someone of their future. Something like this:

"You'll die in a ditch, alone with your old car Betty, crying and realizing that your life was nothing but a waste. Your hand will reach out, digging and clawing into the dirt that's been soaked by your tears. When the blood loss finally gets severe enough that you feel faint… you'll know it's the end. You'll know you're really done for. With one last breath, you'll close your eyes and let the darkness of death engulf your soul. I'm sorry, Reader. I'm sorry."

That…. that passage is a less than ideal, but hey! Give it a chance! I'm just saying, it would be cool to at least experiment a bit with it, no? Maybe some other prophecy character makes up random futures for the reader (good futures laced with some conflict; maybe nothing like what I just wrote above) and tells it to them in the form of the story. Maybe it's first-person future tense and the character is rambling about their own horrible demise that they can clearly see in the future.

I dunno; what do you think?
