MOOD AND TONE IN YOUR NOVELS: HOW DO THEY APPLY TO YOUR WORK: AUTHORS DAVID MORRELL AND JON LAND TAKE CENTER STAGE AS WE TALK ABOUT HOW THEY USE THESE TWO LITERARY ELEMENTS IN THEIR WORK. THERE MIGHT BE A SURPRISE THIRD AUTHOR JOINING US.

 

The mood is the atmosphere of the story, and the tone is the author's attitude towards the topic. We can identify both by looking at the setting, characters, details, and word choices. By doing so, it will help us find meaning in the story or passage and help us feel more connected to the writing

What is the difference between the tone and the mood?

Tone and mood are often confused, so now would be a good time to make sure you understand the difference between the two. If tone is the author's attitude toward a subject, then mood is how we are made to feel as readers, or the emotion evoked by the author.

What is the mood of the story?

The curious thing about tone is that it may change, but it must never waver. Mood - is the feeling a piece of literature arouses in the reader: happy, sad, peaceful, etc. Mood is the overall feeling of the piece, or passage. It could be called the author's.

What is the mood of the book?

The mood is basically the atmosphere the writer wants you to imagine as the scene unfolds so as to evoke emotions in the reader. The mood of a story is how the story feels. It's atmosphere of the story, if the mood of the book is happy or sad the book would be the mood. Its easy to confuse mood and tone.
