Key Differences Between Simple Past Tense and Present Perfect Tense

We generally use the present perfect tense to talk about actions that have a link with the present. Nonetheless, it is also possible to use the past tense to express such actions. Also, the adverbs โ€˜justโ€™, โ€˜recentlyโ€™ and โ€˜latelyโ€™ can be used to denote that the action being spoken about happened in the recent past. It is also possible to use the adverb โ€˜alreadyโ€™ to denote that the action is completed. However, if the sentence happens to be negative, we oftentimes use the adverb โ€˜yetโ€™ provided the sentence is said in the present perfect tense. Look at the example sentences given below:

What Happens After Death Could You Find?

I do my duties diligently, all of which I come across in this very place,
What I doubly ensure is to try my best in all situations to be kind;
Oh, yeah! I also ask this question today as I only everything embrace:
If nothingness exists, what happens after death, could you find?

Time when leaves assume hues more than seven.

The Home Beatific

What you went through is known to all, also what you bear;

What I see in that house is your hardwork, patience, grit sheer.

Jackie Ross Flaum

I’m writing to congratulate you on a marvelous job writing up the interview with me and my work. I’ve put the Dec. 27 article all over my pages.

As a former journalist, I know how difficult it is to write an interview story that is factual and captures the person’s personality. I felt you did both. Well done!
And thank you.

Ai Love

Thank you so much for featuring me! Not many outlets are willing to take a chance on erotica authors, we tend to get more rejection letters than acceptance. Nice to be a part of your family and hope to do this again sometime!

Jesse S Frankel

To the owners and operators of The Literary Juggernaut, I’d like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my thoughts in an interview I recently did for you. Many authors try to get some form of public recognition and publicity for their efforts; you have given me both. I only wish that more blog sites would do the same!

As a writer, it is never easy. We spend long hours writing and rewriting, advertising on Twitter and other forums, chatting with fellow writers on techniques, and just plain doodling around until inspiration hits. It is good to know sites like yours exist that help us spread the word about our work.

Once again, my greatest thanks!
