Of all the things in writing, the one thing that confuses the heck out of me is how to write thoughts. Namely those seen in a first person-past tense narrative. Thoughts seemed to come naturally when I still wroe exclusively in present, but now I'm wondering abut a scenario like this: The italicized part is the thought, however that is not what she is thinking at present, rather what she was thinking at the time. I'm trying at all costs to avoid an "I thought" tag. Anyway, is it correct the way it is, or do I need some action sentence linked to it, or god forbid a thought tag?
