  1. To be honest it’s not just Stephen King’s rule, it’s a recommendation that has been around for years, especially in journalism. I’m not convinced it’s going out of fashion, rather, there are some ill-informed and/or poor writers out there. When I edit or beta books I do look at dialogue – tags, adverbs, punctuation, grammar, but if an author likes their characters to grimace, chuckle, bark instead of saying, or use unnecessary adverbs instead of action, it’s their choice in the end.
