I'm two chapters away from being a novelist (been working on this self-plugged Cosmonogic thing since late 2016) and I'm just now transferring my work over to Tapas because of how dang promising this whole website seems. I have run into a bit of a roadblock when publishing my work, though.
The Question: When I try to italicize something it pushes the text forward, sometimes an entire line forward and it doesn't let me move it back.
"Would you give that back?" Nex swiftly yanked the weapon out of Rake's hands, causing him to stagger backwards. Rake then managed to situate himself back in his seat, only to be met with an agitated glare.
It's better for him to be mad at me than to be in whatever depressive state he was getting himself into.
Rake masked a grin and lapped down some of his Reaver Juice; a bit of it missed his mouth, and oozed down his neck but he didn't mind.
The problem is that the italicized text is supposed to just be another sentence in the paragraph, not force-entered down to another line.
