I write, I write fiction and non fiction alike. I prefer fiction of the horror variety. My very first book I both owned and read was Desperation by Stephen King. Dad was a bit of a King fan to say the least. I’m worse than him, I’m more than a King fanatic and that’s making an understatement (you should see my collection! It collapses book shelves, ask the husband).
What’s appropriate and what’s not? Well, generally, there are three ways to quote long fictional dialogue that spans numerous pages.
The first way is to use open and closed quotations on each paragraph with no indentation.
