Even now, I get confused as to where interior monologue goes in relation to characters' speech. I'm writing something first person, present tense. So...is this correct? 'Blake Andrews,' Aunt Stephanie says. 'Do you remember him?' Blake Andrews. I recognise the name from Mom's yearbook. The look that comes over Mom's face confirms this is a subject she would rather forget. OR should I put the Blake Andrews thought of my MC next to Aunt Stephanie's speech? and another example: 'Maybe you could come live with me after you graduate.' Live with her? 'Thanks,' I say. 'I'll definitely consider it.' Am I correct in saying that my MC's thoughts should always be in a new paragraph?
