So I have a lot of dialogue in my writing, usually with two characters but sometimes more, meaning I need key words to identify who is speaking. What's a good list of words to use? So far, I have: - says - remarks - responds - ponders - questions - demands - inquires - commands - directs - asks - growls - barks - I'll add 'nods' to the end to some if they're affirming, 'shakes his/her head' for denying - denies - agrees - adds What do you all use? Is there a list you have, or one across the internet? I haven't found a good one, and sadly there's a lot of "says" in my writing, and I can only use the others so much without taking away their special flare.
