Writing "Wellllllllllllllllllll". This shouldn't bother me, but I'm stuck trying to decide how to describe "Wellllllllllllllll"; that is, a character starting a sentence with "Well", but dragging out the sound of the word ... kind of like trailing off. This is what I've come up with. I'm not sure if it gets the point across. If there's a better way to write it, please let me know. “Well,” she trailed off and took a deep breath. “I was born in Hong Kong and raised here."
