HOW TO TAG YOUR DIALOGUE
Tagging dialogue can be a lot of fun. It feels like you’re being creative, and it feels expressive and engaging. But, from what I have read and studied, a simple “said” will usually do the trick. It’s sad, huh? It seems to take the life out of our novel if we can’t conjure up all the unique verbs to express our character conversation. We can’t toil doubly over our witches brew of vocabulary words. Shucks!
