I've found that I rarely use said now , or any derivative thereof. My writing usually goes

"Dialogue"

I personally think that 'said' should be the only word used when writing. Rarely do readers pay much attention to the words describing what's being said. Let the words speak for themselves. And if absolutely necessary, use adverbs erm

Of course this is all opinion but, how many New York times #1 Book, or book of the year have had an author who only uses 'said' ?

Why is using words other than said so important? I don't understand it.

Depends on the context. Like, say if a demon says "I'm going to kill you!", I think roared, hissed, sneered, is a little more appropriate.
