I write fiction in present tense out of habit, but a friend who is a published novelist is encouraging me to write in past tense to make myself more publishable (I'm working on a genre piece).



Examples:

Past: He went to the store.
Present: He goes to the store.

1) Do you prefer to read in past or present tense?

2) If you answered "past", would present tense alone dissuade you from reading a book?
