Writing a good story is hard enough without having to worry about your dialogue punctuation.
Our goal in this post is to answer any questions you might have about punctuating dialogue.
One of the main issues with this is knowing the difference between a dialogue tag and an action beat.
With the widespread confusion between the two, it’s high time we spell out some clear rules for commas in dialogue.
When you’re done reading this, you’ll know what belongs where and why.
And your editor will love you for it.
