You already know, as a writer, that your choice of words conveys more than the literal meaning. But what are tone words, and what do they add to your writing?
Tone words in literature draw you into someone else’s head by sharing some of the author’s perspective on what they’re describing. Tone words in an essay or blog post do the same.
We’re not as objective as we like to think, after all. Our choice of words gives us away.
But they can also make your work more interesting and relatable to your reader.
