How do you handle "mid-word pauses" during dialogues in novels?
I rarely see it being done in novels, so I am not sure what are the various ways to format it. Could you tell me the most popular or widely used way to handle mid-word pauses in novels?
If I were to do it right now, I would do this:
"America is the greatest. A-ME-RI-CA, I said, A-ME-RI-CA, not Eureka, that's not even a country."
