Hello everyone, I've just signed up to this site and hope I can add to the community in the future! With that being said: I'm stuck! I'm having trouble with tenses. Often I will write something, only to wonder if it makes sense or wonder if I should change it. Sometimes I change it, only for it to feel flat. If anyone can educate me on what I'm doing wrong, I would be very appreciative! Two examples from an early chapter: -- "Ben half-invaded the cotton/polyster stronghold, his paws seemingly trying to steal the thin bed sheet flooring from its unbathed oppressor, to liberate it." -- "He waited for a certain configuration of light that would never come. Cold fingertips saw him clench his fists, so the circulating bloodflow would provide them with a semblance of heat. His palms held a lukewarm sun; envious knuckles now took the hit." I've italicised the areas where I'm a little confused. This is likely a basic point yet I seem to have missed it entirely until now.
