Setting the Tone -- #WritingTip

When writing a book, you have to decide on setting and tone. This is done by the language in which you use.

For example in a western, you would need to use words like cowboy, horses, boots, shit, things that the reader will associate with the western lifestyle.




Or let's say you are writing a dark vampire story - then you would use words like blood, evil, death, hunger, a dark and storm night, his black satin eyes burned into her brain.



Description of characters, setting, and action set the tone. The writers have only one tool to do this, you guessed it, "Words."

So authors why not leave a comment as to some of your favorite words to use in your books?

Have an awesome day,
