There are lots of questions about how to write about dream, how will it be in a book etc.
I have a bit different question. Imagine this situation:
I was walking down the street to the entrance of the ZOO. Hand in hand with my grandma and baloon on a rope in a second hand. Lightly jumping in between single steps because how i was excited. Road was nearer than normal, but I get over this little detail. I will be in a ZOO for the first time.
I blinked once and twice. Weird. No road. No ZOO entrance. No grandma. In a next second I realized, she is long time dead and I must go to work. Those dreams makes me sad. I really wanted to go to ZOO.
The question is, how to differentiate the dream part from the normal text part in sequences like this. Will you go Italic text or you just let it be? Is it necessary to differentiate dreams from normal text?
Thanks for your advice.
