So I just wanted to post things I put in my writing, and ask is it any good, and is it grammatically correct? Italics: I use italic in my writing for thoughts, or if my character is reading something. When the character is reading something should italics be used? Commas: I am really comma happy. Would it be grammaticality correct for commas in the following sentence: "Maybe", he says as casually as he could, " but I dont know." Because/Like/And: Is it OK to start a sentence with B/L/A? I was taught not to do that, but I noticed it in other writing. Thanks, all help is appreciated.
