    Default verb tense.

    i just wanted someone to tell me if my verb tense was correct. "pulled"

    1. "I could've grabbed it if you hadn't pulled me off. "

    so is "pulled" ok in that phrase? thanks.

    i wanted to ask your opinion about a dialoq line. i wrote:



    CHARACTER 1
    Have you ever felt like you try your hardest but it's never good enough?

    CHARACTER 2
    Sometimes but at least I tried.


    (but i think i should change the "tried" to "try" like this one)

    CHARACTER 2
    Sometimes but at least I try.

    ---what do you think? should i change it ?...

    and would it be grammaticaly correct ? i think i'm going to choose "try" because it flows better.
