Hi, I copied over my text written chapters and have a of internal dialogue sci fi telepathic theme. I know there's italic suggestion for internal dialogue, but actual conversations in my characters head I need to reformat. I am going to make most of them normal dialogue, and was planning on going screenwriting format, but that is too hard to read.

Aryn is POV, so I think I'm just going with italics and only one speaker in her head. I was just wondering what other people have done.

if possible, format as normal dialogue (including using said as the tagging verb) and have the context highlight the telepathic nature of the communication.
