I kind of got a burst of inspiration today and churned out the draft of a short story. I like it. Problem is, it kind of raised an interesting issue with formatting that I am not totally sure the best way to resolve. Without getting into details, two characters are watching something on a television. Since it's a short film (and is a large and essential part of the plot), I basically detail the entire film, almost as if it's a short story within the short story. (If that's the right way to put it.) The issue's coming in that I am also detailing the two character's reactions to the film at a few places within the film. I am unsure how to really make this flow right. I considered putting either the reactions or the movie narration in a different kind of type (ie italics or something), but that seems like it wouldn't look right and I've heard such things advised against. I don't really want to make new scenes just for a brief reaction. And I don't want to cut out the reactions altogether because the film would definitely provoke reaction from one of the characters. Any ideas on how to format this so it looks right? Thanks.
