Watch Your Tone: In the
often confuse the terms tone and mood. Tone is the writer’s attitude
towards the subject he or she is writing about. Mood is the feeling
that is invoked in the reader by the writing itself.
do a good job as a writer, you need to establish what tone you hope to
convey. Ask yourself why you are doing that particular piece of
writing. Are you trying to impress? Or, are you trying to convey
information as neutrally as possible?
important in establishing tone is to look into who your readers will
be. What will make them react (either positively or negatively)?
be sure you have a good idea why your readers may have chosen to read
your piece. Do they want information? Are you presenting them with new
or challenging ideas?
Establish your tone early and the mood of your eventual readers can be
more accurately predicted.
