could someone comment on quoted speech

Post by hansthepoet » Fri Jul 04, 2014 4:42 pm

I was told to use quotes as follows:

"'What were you saying?'"
"'I don't remember, but I think it was important.'"

specially to use a single quotation mark, inside a double quotation mark in this sort of quote, when a narrator is writing about a conversation between himself and another character....I was told it is a style choice for writing in the 3rd 1st person omniscient
