I searched for this through the history. If it's been talked about before I couldn't find it. Anyway, I recently stumbled on a thread that said it was bad writing to use all caps for screaming. I was really glad to have found the discussion because I'd used this in quite a few places in the story I'm currently writing. Then, as I was fixing these occurrences in my writing I realized that in some of these yelling/screaming instances that I'd RUUUUUNNNNNN out the word to convey that it was drawn out. So... what say you? Is this bad? If so, how would you go about showing that this was a prolonged action?
