Advice to Writers

You don’t need to use ‘howled’ or ‘growled’
or ‘yowled’ or ‘cried’ or ‘muttered’.
You don’t have to say ‘wailed’ or ‘wept’
or ‘yelled’ or ‘roared or ‘stuttered’.

You don’t have to use ‘moaned’ or ‘groaned’
or ‘sobbed’ or ‘griped’ or ‘grumbled’.
You don’t need to say ‘giggled’, ‘sniggered’,
‘snorted’, ‘sighed’ or ‘mumbled’.

You don’t need to ‘expectorate’,
‘reveal’, 'confess' or ‘cachinnate’.
You don’t need to ‘affirm’, ‘allege’,
‘deliver’ or ‘pontificate’.

These words all have their uses
but maintain a level head:
sometimes, when you’re writing,
it’s OK to just say ‘said’.
