So I took all my style guides back to the library, and now I have a question that I couldn't readily found online. I have dialogue where my characters are writing to each other in the dirt to keep from being heard. Here's an example: She wrote in the dirt, You look like your grandmother. My mouth fell open. I spelled out her full name, Patarice? So it's present tense dialogue but it's scribbling in the dirt instead of being said out loud. Quotes or no quotes? Thanks.
