Stories are written in the past tense but when someone talks or thinks you use the simple present. Like this:
He walked down the stairs. "You know, you look like a king in his best years." She said. Or is that more than wrong???
And the second thing is:
He read the report while eating a cookie. OR He read the report while he was eating a cookie. What's right???
If anyone could help me I would be in your debt forever ^-^
Oh and got some song ideas for a vid? Tell me!
