Direct speech is used when telling a story. It is a form of language that tells what the person is actually saying. Narrative, on the other hand, includes all forms of writing that tell an event or story in a specific point of view. The difference between direct speech and narrative can be seen in the following quote: "I can't believe we're not going to see each other for a whole year," she said with sadness in her voice.

There are two types of narration. Direct Speech: When a speaker's speech is repeated in a quotation, this is referred to as direct speech. Indirect speech is when you use a speaker's words without modifying their meaning in any manner.

A statement in which the precise words spoken are repeated in speech marks is known as direct speech (also known as quotation marks or inverted commas). For example, Sam exclaimed, "You'll never guess what I've just witnessed!" "What is that?" Louise inquired.

Many people make mistakes when using direct speech in text. As with any other form of writing, it is important to keep the tone and voice consistent throughout the piece.

While a lot of people do not use direct speech in their writing, it is still widely used by authors when they are trying to convey different feelings. This can be done in the form of dialogue or narration.
