Why is the past simple and not the present perfect used in the following context?
One day, Jack told Anne about John’s life in Canada. She wrote articles for her school Internet magazine. And she was always looking for new stories.
Why did the author choose to use past simple in (She wrote articles) instead of the present perfect simple or even the past continuous like he did in (And she was always looking), as 'Anne' was still writing articles, in general, at the time of speaking.
Thanks in Advance.
