This is sort of embarrassing but I have a question regarding how to show an email or statement (something written) in a story. Here's a terrible example on what I am trying to ask: Tommy didn't hear from Jason after the eating contest from the night before. He began to worry and thought of calling. But he did not need to because Jason's girlfriend sent him an email later that night. Dear Tommy, After the pop rock candy eating contest last night, Jason came home and drank a 2 liter of Mountain Dew. He began to shake badly and then exploded into a million pieces. It may be a closed coffin, we are not sure yet. I will write again later for funeral information and dates. Thanks, Jason's Girlfriend P.S- Can you quickly design a seagull motif to be engraved on his tombstone? Tommy began immediately working on the motif. --So how do I format this? Do I " " it, or do I em dash it front and back? From those that I have spoke to here personally, you will not be surprised by ignorance on these sorts of things. For those that were not aware of this (it's obvious from my past posts though), sorry for the lack of know-how. Any help is appreciated. Oh wait, would the same be done to written statements in news articles? Like: Blah, blah, blah, Blah, issued a a written statement yesteday: Blah. Yay! We won the war!
