Hey Jan and classmates
. I tried a 3rd person present tense in my last entry for up and down. You can find it here
Emperor of the Afternoon
And, although I truly liked writing in this manner, it didn't seem to resonate with the judges. Looking back as to the disadvantages in writing in this style I can see why it was not received so well. However, I really liked using this tense as it seemed, to me, to put the reader immediately into the situation at hand...and I did receive some wonderful comments for those who did read it which literally made my day
As this is such a challenging style, I personally don't want to give up on it, but learn better how to use it. Thanks for the class, Jan.
