I'm currently writing a fantasy in third person and because my character is alone a lot of the time she thinks things rather than saying them out loud (because who goes around narrating every thought they have to themselves?). What is grammatically correct for showing the charterers thoughts in third person? My grammar-Nazi husband says generally you italicize them with like a "she thought to herself" excerpt. Here is an example of how I have already written them. "Alright then, I'll find my own way out, she decided to herself." and "Well I suppose in this particular situation I am keen to actually follow the light, she chuckled to herself." Is this correct? Or because it is third person should I not show thoughts from my character at all?
