When answering the question about what I like to do in my favourite weather which is the correct choice of tense the present simple or the progressive?
- I write poetry and try to write a book.
If I use the present simple that would mean that's what I usually do. But with the progressive if I say "I am trying" it would refer to a temporary action.
- I write poetry and I am trying to write a book. (currently)
The question is from the book by Casey Malarcher "Reading Challenge".
