Today, we discussed author's purpose in writing. We know different kinds of writing. We know fiction, nonfiction, realstic fiction, fantasy, biography, autobiography, poetry, folktales, and plays. There are many different reasons why authors write what they do. For example, an author would write fiction and fantasy to entertain their audience. If an author wanted to tell us facts and information about a topic, they would write nonfiction. If an author wanted to express their feelings in writing that sounds like a song, they would write poetry. If an author wanted you to learn about a person's life, they would write a biography. If the author writes a books about his or her own life, we call that autobiography.
