    • Use quotation marks around the words which the character says:
    • Periods and commas are always placed inside the quotation marks.
    • Dialogue begins with a capitalized word, no matter where in the sentence it begins. (Interrupted dialogue, when it resumes, is not capped.)
    • Only direct dialogue requires quotation marks.
    • Direct: “She was a bore,” he said.
    • “He loved you.”
    • dialogue tag (attribution)
    • The dialogue is enclosed in quotation marks. A comma follows the dialogue and comes before the closing quotation mark. A period ends the sentence. Punctuation serves to separate the spoken words from other parts of the sentence.

       

      Because the dialogue tag—she said—is part of the same sentence, it is not capped.

    • “He loved you,” she said.
    • Single line with dialogue tag first
    • She said, “He loved you.”
    • Single line of dialogue with dialogue tag and action
    • The action and dialogue tag can also come first.
    • Dialogue interrupted by dialogue tag
    • “He loved you,” she said, “but you didn’t care.”
