Probably a common question, but I couldn't find any related threads. I'm curious if I'm handling my situation correctly. I've been writing entirely in present-tense / 3rd person so far. I have 3 scenes, all written in present-tense but all 3 occur in a less than straight time line. I've got Scene A narrating about a specific character in an semi-isolated place. Scene A ends about 25% through scene B. The character in Scene A sees the character from Scene B just as Scene A is about to end. Scene B starts and follows the actions of an entirely different character. She does some stuff and about 25% of the way through the scene is when she gets spotted by the character of scene A. She remains unaware that she is seen. The woman runs off. Scene B ends. Scene C starts approximately 75% of the way through Scene B, continuing the narration of events of the character found in Scene A. Scene C ends sometime after the woman from Scene B running off. So my problem is about half of the events from Scene C have already happened. Now the reader is just seeing it from another angle. Do I continue writing this in present-tense? Should I adopt past-tense temporarily? I'm planning on staying present-tense but I'm not sure if this is the best course of action.
