Q: How to do dialogue?

K124STWhenever I'm writing, I use this style: •"I don't see why I have to put up with this nonsense." I muttered. However, I see this type of writing in books: •"This room is full of idiots," he muttered. Is the style I use okay, or do I have to change it to the one I see in books?

@MonicaCellio When you reviewed my edit of this answer did the paragraph breaks seem correct? I was not entirely certain. (I also considered breaking up the last paragraph, but ...)

@PaulA.Clayton they looked right to me -- new paragraph for each change in speaker seems common to me. Thanks for your contributions to our site, by the way -- your meta answer on what makes a good answer is excellent, and I saw several edits from you today. Good job.
@MonicaCellio The meta answer is c. wiki--additions and alterations are encouraged. I am hoping that the answer itself can be an example of what makes a good answer (how meta :-). An expository text section seems necessary to show how that style should be implemented and when it is appropriate. (I admit editing can be fun.)
@PaulA.Clayton yes, agreed -- that answer should be an example of a good answer. I hope to be able to devote more attention to contributing to it later tonight. Thanks for making it CW.
@MonicaCellio If it was not on Meta, I would probably not have had the virtue to do so; but meta upvotes don't count for much. I look forward to seeing your contribution--probably not until tomorrow morning (here on U.S. east coast). (leaving chat)
@PaulA.Clayton good time zone! ttyl
