Writing expressions such as sounds

    I am an intense writer who likes my characters to be expressive. I want to be able to write that a character made a certain sound, but not only do I want to narrate it but I want it in dialogue.

    These are examples.

    "Hmmmm," she uttered.

    "Heh," was his reply.

    Can anyone help with other utterings/mutterings (as I like to call them)or expressions.

      OMG, thanks, knol!

      You have no idea how long I've been looking for a page like that. I'm not a native English speaker, but I write in English, which is extra challenging with regards to exclamations and such (they're tricky even in my native language). You can't really google a sound, now can you...

      My novel and I are forever in your debt. You're a life saver!

    in writing you need to express what you felt and you need to be passionate and be respectful because it will help you a lot how to build a successful beginning of life. Thats why I love writing.

    If you Google "onomatopoeia" I am sure you'll find what you need. When I do my kids writing camps in the summer I hang an onomatopoeia poster on the wall and every time we think of one we write it on the poster. By the end of the week the poster is covered with "sound words." The kids love it.
