Point of View
POV and tense
Such an interesting question!
I have written in first person present tense, and I chose it because I felt like it was simpler--the character and reader experience everything as it's happening in real time.
However, I think as a reader I like a third person past tense best. It just feels classic. That's what I am working with now, and it seems to flow out a little more easily.
The only POV I find truly off-putting is a second person. Some writers can pull this off but it's rare.
