Some time ago some one was asking about how to deal with people's thoughts in a story, and I write a lot of thinking in to most of mine!
Verbal intercourse is often marked with " or ' but I have noticed that it seems normal not to use any marker at all on thoughts. However, I use " or ' for thoughts also because I feel they need to be marked with something. But I still make it clear in the text that it is someone's thoughts.
But I have recently been thinking that there should be an actual unique marker for thoughts also. (Using what is on a normal keyboard that is!)
I was considering; Mary wondered, >should I do it?< or something else rarely used in stories.
If we all did that it could become 'normal'.
What are your thoughts on that?
I was also wondering about a unique marker for talk via telepathy also. Mary thought at James, ^should I do it?^ James replied, ^no, not yet.^
What do you think about that?
