Quick Self-Editing Tip

Tense Trouble

One of the biggest problems in writing are when you use past perfect or past tense with verbs (ie: past perfect: had walked, past: walked). Easy rule of thumb. . .If you're writing in past tense, anything that happened before the point your story picks up should be in past perfect tense.


Jane had bought (past perfect) Cyndi Lauper type dress and was (past) less attracted to it now.
