I'm no good with tense. So, just to keep it simple and avoid mistakes, I wrote my entire story in past tense. Everything my character thinks and does (except dialogue) is in that tense. And I'm fine with that. However, there is one little weird thing. The character is thinking the following statement. Which is correct: 1. I had to get my homework done, but I didn't feel like doing it now. 2. I had to get my homework done, but I didn't feel like doing it then. I think 2 is technically correct. But sometimes 1 just sounds better.
