Dabbling too deep into the theoretical grammar, I found myself in front of an unexpected obstacle. Logically speaking, if the present simple tense is mostly focused on habitual events, then when I'm reporting something that was said just a while ago, should I go with:
Lucy says she wants to play World of Warcraft now.
Lucy is saying she wants to play World of Warcraft now.
Personally, I'd choose the first option, though I'm not convinced that the second one is incorrect.
On the other hand, I feel that dropping the word "now" would make the sentence ambiguous, changing the possible meaning to something like "She said that she wants to play it someday". In this case I'm even more doubtful about the correctness of the present continues option. I feel the same about:
Lucy tells me she wants to see Florida.
Lucy is telling me she wants to see Florida.
