Elements of Fiction (53)

Element 53: Mood

Image by Author

All things occur in some atmosphere or ambience, and the careful, skilled writer knows exactly how to create and maintain such mood, which is what makes it a fictional element.

If the fictional mood is controlled skillfully, the reader will soon find him or herself in just that mood, too, re-creating the various dimensions, mood included, of the story.
