I've been writing poetry ever since I was 15 and have only dabbled in short stories. That being said I'm completely ignorant of a lot of short story or novel grammar usage. For instance I never use the quotation marks in poetry. When I go to write I feel as if I'm misuing them. An example would be this sentence I put in a post: My bf and I have had that 'what would you do if zombies attacked?' conversation so many times! Can someone direct me to a good, clear website on the proper usage of the single quotation mark? I feel as if I'm that person that walks around annoying people making quotation marks with their fingers. The difference of course being you can't see what I'm doing.
