    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.

    Hi!

    When I first asked my question, I found this amazing article @ https://blog.prepscholar.com/other-words-for-said

    It’s good because it breaks it up into emotions for an easier way to find exactly what you’re looking for. (happy, sad, angry, shock \ surprise, fear, expository, argumentative, critical, implicative, etc.)

    There are some many more great tips there as well.

    Hope this helps!
