Usage of the word drift...
I drift back into the present.
Is this a correct sentence? I mean by the sentence that I was thinking about the past and then I drift back into the present
Shawn's answer brings out a good point. I read this as a present tense narrative, and he read it as relating the story in the past tense. Either is valid and show the nuances available with a slight change. It also points out that a minor change can make a big difference in what your reader perceives.
