I made my decision to tackle my first major short story in a third person narrative. In which the narrator is a character the reader and main character meet later in the story. So my question is; should I do the 3rd person omniscient narrative in past of present tense? So far I've been writing it in the present tense, and while I'm somewhat happy with what I have done, I am not sure if this type of tense is best suited for the rest of the story. Since the narrator is a tangible character speaking of what he has come to learn first hand, should this part fo the story he chronicles be in Past Tense? If so, it's not the end of the world, as I think I can focus in on and rewrite it in a much better way that is more condusive to the overall narrative. also I'm not even that far into it, so changing it shouldn't be too hard.
