How do you show someone is crying in dialogue? (as in, is there an onomatopoeia that can show crying well? I ask because "(insert dialogue)..sniffle..(insert dialogue)..snifle..", does show that the effects of crying are playing a role in the dialogue but is there a better, or cooler onomatopoeia that could be used?) Also, is there a single word or phrase to say that someone is slowly stopping crying?
Waa! He wants me to cry! Boo Hoo! You're so mean! Sniffle.
A whiny term that sounds like someone crying; used jokingly.
"I forgot to get a coffee at Starbucks today. Waa!"
used to represent the sound of someone crying noisily.
"she broke down and boohooed"
sniff slightly or repeatedly, typically because of a cold or fit of crying.
an act of sniffing because of a cold or crying.
"he was restraining his sniffles rather well"
My eyes drip with tears. My walls, the walls that hold me up, make me strong just... collapse. Moment by moment, they fall. Salty drops fall from my chin, drenching my shirt. Perhaps these tears will help wash the blood out. I press my head against the wall... baby blue, so innocent... I am anything but innocent. I'm trembling. I can't-can't stop. Even as I press my hand against the wall it shakes, it trembles. It's raw, everything, raw tears, raw emotions. I can't stop... I can't stop. Why can I not stop crying?
Not my work, but love this writing!!!
