I've been wondering this for a while, and hey, no time like the present to throw this out there:
When writing reviews, do you use past tense or present tense for describing a book? Example: This book is amazing vs this book was amazing. Or, the characters are fluid vs the characters were fluid. I loved it vs I love it.
I'm sure I go back and forth in my reviews. Am afraid to look which is why I can't say for certain. I just don't KNOW what is more acceptable, or if people even care, or if it's just me being weird. Anyone know the standard?
Of course, I'll use this opportunity to also throw in a poll! (I LOVE POLLS.)
Next up on my newsreel... Hannah Baker, the dead main character of Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why, is speaking! Catch her over on her blog as she reads the tapes she sent the thirteen people on her list. And if you recognize the voice ... well, you should! It's the girl from Juno, Olivia Thirlby.
AND, now, for the writers out there - have you seen Pat Holt's excellent list of ten mistakes writers make? Most of 'em are subtle, which makes the list all the more worthwhile to read. :) I'd never been on her blog before, which surprises me because I'm huge on good writing blogs, but that post assured I'd stay a while. A bit longish for those with short attention spans, but useful all around.
