Another reason... know your characters well:

Your dialogue will be better.

I just wrote:

"I bet Levi and them were lying," Stella said.

And when I was typing that into the computer, it hit me right away that it was wrong.

What Stella would say is:

"I bet Levi and them were fibbing."

[and that's such a good word "fibbing", isn't it?]
