my novel in a present tense?
Well, most of the time, the novelist will write it in a past tense and it is rather rare to see a novel written in a present tense. And I am hesitating if I should write it in a present tense. I write writing experiments and I usually put it as a present tense just to let the reader view things like a play, and so that the reader would be able to grow along with the character. However, if I make something too strange and out of the mainstream, I fear that it might not sell.
First of all, I will be writing a novel about 5 different characters, pursuing their dreams in the city. Each of the character is written in a first person point-of-view, because I want to use the voice of the character to speak to the readers. It is more of less like a diary, but since I want to make each character development more obvious, I will slowly change the voice of each character…..
It will be the biggest task of novel writing I have ever done. I have never actually worried so much about grammar or style of writing, I simply write whatever I want to write, but this type, I need to develop my own writing skills.
And when I am confident with this style, I’ll post up excerpts!
