The Power of Words

Authors can help you feel a certain way by using certain words. A lot of this is personification, for example instead of saying “his pencil wrote across the paper” the author could say “his pencil danced across the paper” which helps you visualize the scene much better, and also helps you get a better feel for what is going on. The author may ask us questions to help us connect to the story, or the author might mention things that we might be able to relate to, also to help connect us with the story. Authors uses very descriptive words too, which can help us understand the mood.
