Past or Present

Can I ask everyone a question?

Lately I’ve come across a few people who tend to write their stories in either first or third person present tense.

Personally, I find things written in present tense the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard.

To me, past tense is a much more enjoyable read, and most common.

What is your preference?

Present tense: a tense expressing an action that is currently going on or habitually performed, or a state that currently or generally exists.

Past tense: a tense expressing an action that has happened or a state that previously existed.
