One thought on “Questions 289: First Person, Present Tense”

  1. Thanks, again.

    This podcast was particularly helpful. I’d never made the connection between mystery and 1PPT. We’ll chock it up to my brilliant instincts that I’ve written my own mystery this way. I also appreciated the thought that it’s breadth, not depth, that’s in jeopardy. I’ll be hunting up this list of books, too.

    Much obliged.
