Authors, although you may not notice at first glance, always have a specific style of writing that effects the tone of their writing. Scott Simon's, "SEVEN DECADES ON," and Martin Niemoller's, " First, They Came," equally show how each's style contributes to the two of their text. Some examples of style that effect tone is sentence structure, vocabulary, and use of irony. Niemoller and Simon's text both use their own type of sentence structure and vocabulary to add to the tone of their writing, and make their individual tones be unique to their own style of writing. Niemoller uses short, multi-part sentences to stress a big point in a small amount of words.
It’s human nature to want to protect ourselves from danger or getting in trouble.

During the cross-examination, Atticus says, “What did your father see in the window, the crime of the rape or the best defense to it? Why don’t you tell the truth, child, didn’t Bob Ewell beat you up?” (Lee 251).
The article of Lisa J. McIntyre is about Hernando’s Washington case. Hernando Washington was arrested and charged with robbery, rape, and murder. The main argument of this article is figuring out should we blame Hernando for robbing, kidnapping, raping and murdering another human being? In other words, convincing ourselves about social imagination. From my understanding of social imagination, is what allows us to make connections between individuals and the societies in where we live in, furthermore, that there is an explanation and reasoning for people's actions.
Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20).

At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced. By calling herself a “cracked plate” Nanny further elucidates that she went through many hardships in her own life and wants to do the right thing for her granddaughter by

“What did he there? Could he be… the murderer of my brother? No sooner did that idea cross my imagination, than I became convinced of its truth,” (50). The truth is the creature did kill Frankenstein’s brother, but it is the speed and immediate confidence in authority of his accusation that is problematic. Victor has now revealed his inclination to imagine a crime committed by someone and quickly believe it as true; in this case, his accusations will always go towards the creature, because of his relentless hate for the being, and he will always believe the creature to be a criminal.

In like manner, the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston can be closely associated with Mr. Foster’s “quest formula”.

During unexpected circumstances, Janie had to kill Tea Cake and return to her previous home, where she rationalizes that Tea Cake gave her what she wanted the most, freedom and free will, and finally finds her peace of mind.

Considering the many different literary devices used in creating writing, I have chosen several distinct elements, setting, theme, point of view and characterization. These particular devices are essential elements in my toolkit. As a realistic fiction writer the four elements serve a purpose and together they should craft an interesting story. As a result, my first important foundational tool is setting. If the writer cannot capture the reader 's attention through the creative backdrop, settings, then the foundation is not buildable and my story may be weak and uninteresting.
