I’m writing a book where in the beginning, we’re introduced to the couple by a conversation they’re having. I’m wondering how I can phrase it correctly?
"It's like I don't even know you anymore, Warren! You talk about doing big things, but when push comes to shove, you always find a way to let people down... and I'm tired of being let down. I love you Warren, I do. But I'm just not sure I want to be let down anymore. You're not the same person." [said Nastia at the dinner table].
I just don’t feel like it makes sense to start a new sentence with said. What are some suggestions?
