I was wondering, how do you write your character's thoughts? I've seen all kinds of methods. Mine is to italicize them, and use them as a sort of character commentary on what is happening. The deeper and more complex thoughts get explained in paragraphs. I think this works fine, but someone editing my work thinks otherwise. And, as she has been a creative writing teacher longer than I've been able to write, I feel I should give her advice some thought. Does this method seem confusing to you? And, problems aside, how do you explain your character's thoughts? It's really pretty interesting to know, what with all the variety. In the same vein, how do you handle mental communication between said characters? I just bold and italicize the "guest" in the character's mind. Again, it's interesting to know how other writers do things. Thanks in advance.
