Said is Dead

Found a good post on the usage of the word said in fiction.

I have to agree with gmth. When you use "said" it tends to fade into the background where it belongs. Writers who try to overdescribe draw attention away from the dialog itself. It's similar to the overuse of adverbs. If the writing is competent, the extra descriptions should be superfluous.

I agree as well.

I wouldn't deviate from the word very often in writing.
