Answer:

There are two main types of writing. Fact-Based writing, which includes reports, research papers, essays, and scientific reports/journals. These focus solely on relaying facts and data to the reader, to prove a hypothesis or defend a position regarding the topic of the paper. The other type of writing is Creative writing, which includes narrative, inventive, prompt-based writing, and persuasive or formal critiques. This methodology focuses on creating and developing plot, characters, conflict, climax, and resolution and employing various literary devices and stylistic techniques to draw the reader in and capture (and keep!) their interest.

Question:

What are some powerful literary devices found in well-written novels that allow the author to relay a larger social commentary or insight on topics beyond just the plot and character development within the story?

Answer:

Some of the most widely used literary devices used by authors to relay a "bigger" picture or larger statement to their readers range from the simple to the complex. Some simple, and often most striking, methods are similes, metaphors, and analogies. Recurring images or symbols within a story or plot can also speak to larger symbolism or depth of meaning within a text. Additionally, authors frequently employ paradox and satire to draw their reader's attention in a humorous way to wide-spread common beliefs or systemic issues.

Answer:

When trying to remember the four types of verbs, think of a broad sword and the ACTION of sword fighting-remember a verb is a word that describes an ACTION! (among a few other roles it can play) Think of the sword's HILT-that acronym will help you recall that the four types of verbs are Helping, Intransitive, Linking, and Transitive!
