Where do you lie on the debate on dialogue tags? Do you find it tedious to only use said and asked? Or do you think that using words like wailed, screamed, etc, is an undeniable offense to writing?
How do you feel about dialogue tags as a writer? As a reader?
I ask this because originally I would use dialogue tags such as screamed, wailed, etc… but as I researched some more on writing and eventually got back into it, I began only using said and asked.
Though I admit using only said and asked felt strange and foreign at first - probably due to my original preference of using other dialogue tags - it slowly grew on me.
