The parade keeps passing, and while it's been a year or so since I offered this bit of advice, it apparently hasn't sunk in. I read two books in manuscript form recently that both suffered from said-bookism and adverb-poisoning in the dialog. I won't repeat the post, but if you are a newbie fiction writer -- and I mean that in the sense that you a) either don't know what said-bookisms and adverb poisoning are, or b) have an idea but still use them in your prose, go here and read this, right now.
There are many ways to write, and much of what pros argue about runs to taste -- some folks like some spices, others don't -- but there are things that will mark you as somebody who doesn't know what s/he is doing in a manuscript and this is one of them. Unless you have a really good reason for using a word other than "said" in your attribution during dialog, put down that Thesaurus and DON'T DO IT, okay?
