1.  Writers always argue over these forms of grammar, when most of those who read do not really care
    and would prefer to focus on the storytelling. Why? To get to the bottom of this , would first
    have to get an understanding of what is behind these grammar terms to begin with. First personoften is told from the character’s own point of view (I, Me, We), and focuses on a literary or
    personal story, while third person is a more commercial type story that sells and is written from
    a more distant point view (He, She, Them).

     Past tense was once the industry standard in publishing and retold the story from the character’s
    point of view after the events took place, while present tense is often more associated with the
    ”in the moment” approach of screenwriting in film and television. Yet this is becoming more
    prominent as publishing industry sales are down and more authors are venturing into this medium.
    However, the advantage with a published is that itcan delve into the character’s mind and is an
    easier sell despite the fact a screenplay can make more money.

     The dichotomy between single space and double space is becoming more and more interesting as
    eReaders are coming more into play and possibly dominating the market. From personal experience, I
    started doing eBooks using the required single space, yet many frowned upon it and suggested I use
    double space since this was the required approach for print. However, once I became comfortable
    witing and proofreading in double space, everyone started using single space as a result of Amazon
    Kindle’s popularity. Although I still use double space for clarity in my own writing and

     The message I am trying to convey here is no matter what anyone says, explore each form of person
    and tense you possiblycan. And outside of writing and proofreading your own work, do not be too
    concerned with single space or double space as an industry standard.
