P.S. If you are not writing for an English class...
It is quite common for a writer to write about past events in the present tense. This can be good "storytelling." It creates a sense of immediacy. We are more excited about things happening now than things that happened in the past.
I am reading a book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugan, "Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot." It is intended to be accurate history, but it is written to be exciting. He is writing about 1963, but the book opens this way. I'm capitalizing some words:
"The man with fewer than three years to live HAS his left hand on the Bible.
Chief Justice Earl Warren STANDS before him reciting the Presidential Oath of Office...
The new president, born into wealth, HAS a refined manner of speaking," etc. etc.
All about 1963, all written in the present tense.
If you were writing or telling about a dream, and you wanted to tell a good story, you could certainly write about a dream this way.
"Last night, I went to bed, and as I am falling asleep, suddenly I seem to be flying through space. Somehow I know that it is important for me to touch every star as I pass near it. And then I am slowing down, and there is a planet below me..."
I just learned five minutes ago that this is called the "historical present," https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_present
. I would NOT use it in English assignment without asking the teacher about it first!
