Hi all. Just a quick question on what everyone's opinion is on how to describe the action. Is it better to use present tense to describe a flashback, and then use present tense for the current action?

For example, "Johnny boy was running to his office, because his alarm clock was jacked."

Compared to:

"Johnny boy ran to his office, because his alarm clock was jacked."

Just pointing this out, because I have been doing some research on this very issue, and some out there have a broad preference to present tense. Any thoughts on this?
