So, the term “tone” is one of those words I know, but to describe it in regards to writing, always went awry. It felt like an abstract element of writing. Yesterday, I aimed to change that, by looking up the term.
For stories, tone expresses the writer’s attiude in the story. Adjectives, verbs, and syntax help convery this attitude. On paper it’s what you say, those words shape your material.
That said, if one writes a story with a happy, or peppy attitude, it will show in the writing. The emotion can change, or remain the same throughout a story. Any emotion you think of, can be applied to a story is your tone.
I never really thought of tone in writing past the abstract. I know now, and I will endeavor to use it with the current project.
Happy creative endeavors.
P.S. Still writing down questions for this story. Will compile the wuestions from my notebook, and hope to answer them soon.
My goal is to know my main character (MC), the antagonist, and story world a lot better.
Also doing research on topics relating to the characters and story world.
