WN #16: Verb Tense
You probably have a tense you naturally want to write in, but sometimes, there may be another tense that will better achieve your writing goals for a particular piece.
Past, present, and future are the most basic forms of tenses.
Write two lines (about anything of your choosing), first in past tense, then in present tense, and finally, in future tense.
How does changing the tense affect the feel of the words?
Okay folks, it’s another workshop day. While I am conferencing with students individually, these are your options:
* write in your writer’s notebook about anything in any form
* work on a post for your blog (remember your first graded one is due tomorrow)
* read a great book
* help a fellow writer with his/her writing
Okay, happy writing/reading!
