Think of another mood that hasn’t already been discussed today that a writer can create through setting, imagery, word choice, and detail.
In a few sentences, describe a scene from a movie or book that is a great example of the mood you chose.
What kind of setting, images, words, sounds, details, etc. are used to create the mood.
Imagery – is the descriptive language that writers use to create word pictures. These pictures or images are created through the details that appeal to the senses: sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.
Imagery makes characters and the world they live in come alive for the reader. By describing how things look, sound, taste, smell, and feel readers can truly “see” the story because it is so clearly described.
