    Sharing a great resource I found today, which includes an AMAZING list of other words to choose from instead of using yet another “said”. Of course, dialogue can also appear as is without any descriptor, but that kind of bald conversation has to be used sparingly and usually requires lots of expertise to pull it off well.

    There are some great ideas here. I’d use the 421 words carefully. Have you ever seen the magazine Taste of Home? The recipe contributors are declaiming, averring, asserting, stating, etc.
