Something I've wondered for a while is if it's more correct to use "there" or "here" in past tense when narrating. Say a character is stranded in the desert and I'm using third person limited, which is correct/sound better? "It was very hot here" vs. "It was very hot there". Something else is when using "today" and "now". Example: "Today was an important day." Would it be more correct to say something like "that day" instead? Maybe it's because I'm not a Native English speaker that I can't tell what's right.
