I don't know if there's a term for this, but how do people feel about the use of 'tomorrow' in past tense narratives? I want to get over my hang-up and use it, as I see it so often in other works, but I always go back and change it to 'the following/next day'. Here's why. If I'm telling someone a story in the traditional past tense manner, I wouldn't say, '.... everyone else was due to arrive tomorrow...' I would say, '... everyone else was due to arrive the next day...' So what's my problem you may be asking. Well, sometimes I find myself automatically writing 'tomorrow' because it sounds so natural, and it's only my hang-up with past tense 'rules' that make me go back and change it. Also, even a past tense narrative can often read as though the events are happening right there and then, at 'that' moment in time. It's one of those daft cases where I have no problem reading it, but can't bring myself to use it.
