Ok, I have recently taken up writing stories as a hobby. I have been reading lots of writing help guides etc and have been trying to learn as much as I can. One thing I am having trouble understanding though is how to end my sentences with punctuation when one of my characters is speaking. This might sound very stupid, but I will give an example of what I mean. "You have to turn right." Said Samantha. is the correct typing to have no period after the word right, like this? "You have to turn right" said Samantha. Are there exceptions for when my characters ask each other questions? I am reading and learning as much as I can but I seem to have trouble with this. Thanks for any help.
