i’m writing a book report and i’m havong trouble deciding when to use past tences, as i’m describing something that has already happened, yet at the same time it’s also occurring as i’m describing it, EVEN THOUGH it has already happened… T_T
so i’m really confused as to when i should use past tenses.
here’s an example:
tommy did not go to school when he notices his sister was sick. He looks after her and helps her get the medicine.
tommy did not went to school when he noticed his sister was sick. He looked after her and helped her get the medicine.
here’s another one:
…and so superman followed him and down the well he fell.
…and so superman follows him and down the well he falls.
john was looking at me, and then he said that he…
john looks at me, and then he says that he…
i don’t when to use past tenses anymore, please help me i’m going to cry soon…T_T
and thank you very much for the help!
