My numbers are not in dialogue, but they are in the story. I think I am going to write them out as words, and just be consistent, right?

Hi, Mary. I believe this is what I recommended. I agree that Strunk and White do not give much detail, and the WD article seems geared more towards journalism. James’ website is terrific, and pretty much matches what I’ve done in my own fiction, after reading what other novelists do.
