I've said here before that adverbial dialogue tags are a bit like bay leaves - you put 'em in at the beginning to get the flavour right, but you gotta take 'em out before you serve up.
But if used in a safe, controlled environment, adverbs can be fun! As evidenced by the existence of the Tom Swifty. Those of you who follow me on Twitter will have already seen these, but for the rest of you, here are my attempts:
'I just closed my eyes for like, FIVE SECONDS,' protested Little Bo Peep sheepishly.
'Do you hear the people sing?' asked Les miserably.
'You call this a seafood platter?' said Melissa crabbily. 'Where's the lobster?'
'You know there's a reason why nothing rhymes with orange,' she told the redhead gingerly.
'You know, there's something missing from this bouquet,' muttered Jo lackadaisically.
'This one is really loud - it goes up to eleven,' said Jacob amply.
'You see, I am a professional linguist,' he said cunningly.
'And stay down!' squeaked Piglet overbearingly.
'One for you, and one for your little dog,' clanked the Tin Man heartlessly.
'Here, why don't we swap gloves?' said the kitten intermittently.
Lili padded up to the edge. 'What is that frog sitting on?' she pondered wetly.
