Episode 47: Jennie Teaches Grammar! Italics in Internal Thought

In this episode:

To italicize or not to italicize? That is the question. Abby uses too many italics, and Jennie gives some good guidelines to help writers decide when to italicize.

Abby turned in a submission that was heavy on internal thought, which meant she had italicized huge chunks of each page. It was distracting, but she wasn't sure how to fix it. Rewrite? Just un-italicize? Leave it?

This episode is perfect for those not-so-perfect writers (like Abby!) who sometimes find themselves tangled in the sticky, tricky web of grammatical mistakes.
