4. POV, Tense, and Tone

Be careful when choosing a point of view for a story. Once you choose a POV, you want to stick with it for the entirety of the story. If you’re writing an essay for class, don’t switch tenses either. Keep a professional tone, unless told otherwise. Also, keep personal anecdotes out of your paper. You can tell your teacher the story after class.
