Dialogue Tags: 100 Ways to Say “Said”
Be sure to read my post from yesterday, where I suggested that good writers use few dialogue tags to indicate who is speaking, and when they do, they rely on trusty old said and occasionally asked.
Still, there’s nothing wrong with mixing it up on occasion — especially when how something is said is particularly important and not sufficiently clear through the dialogue itself. Writers young and old need help sometimes with alternatives to said, so I created an official WriteAtHome List of Dialogue Tags.
Plus, it was kind of fun to come up with them. If you enjoy it, please feel free to share. I’ve put it on our Pinterest page too, of course.
