I don't have a problem using them when a character is thinking or talking, but otherwise it doesn't right to use them, unless in casual context like now. I write in third person and there are times it sounds more natural to use them, however I feel like this is breaking a rule or it's not something a professional writer would do. Please share your thoughts with me on this. For some reason it is really tripping me up. I’ve seen some other threads on this, but I was wondering if anyone would like to go more in depth about it and explain more about the tone it sets.
