Here is the example that I have:
"Mother," I said with clenched teeth, "I said I don't want to talk about it."
I'd like to express the fact that each word in the second part of the sentence is said with a hard break or pause. Example:
"I. said. I. don't. want. to. talk. about. it."
I'm sure there is a better way, so any help would be appreciated. Also, what is this type of pause called?
