Said? Update the vocab!

I don’t know about the rest of ya, but I feel a little like I am writing a Dick & Jane primary book when I use ‘Said’ too often in my novels… but then, some peeps believe that ‘Said’ is the only way to go… but just look at all these alternatives… why limit your writing???

I absolutely love Pinterest… there is so much to find… with this list, you can show your characters even more clearly… I have used about half of these naturally, but there are a lot of choices that I never thought of…

as for the authors that believe that ‘Said’ is the best way, I have some favorites that I love to read… even though I disagree, their stories are still enjoyable and re-readable… I love to read my favorites over and over… Slow writing is usually the only way to make me lose interest… so if my go-to authors want to stick with ‘Said’, then to each their own…

I believe that each author needs to follow their own path… there are some rules that all of us need to follow, but the bottom line in writing for me is to always enjoy the creation…

anywho… I am off to play with some of these said-replacements… Happy wordage everyone…

if you want to check out some of my writing you can go to either My Book Site or my Author Page on Pronoun
