Setting the mood of a story. What form of mood will you use for the overall tone of your book. Not every scene has to follow the trend but take care when switching from one to another. So what are these forms.
Comedy means an amusing story with a happy ending. If you start a story in this manner, don't switch to tragedy in the second half of the book. Humor can be part of the story but it doesn't necessarily have to be funny for the entire book. Amusing us a better way to go.
Tragedy is almost the opposite of comedy. There is no happy ending. Think Shakespeare's tragedies. Macbeth is a one.
Melodrama appeals to the emotions often by exaggerations . Usually there is a happy ending but not always. The characters are usually larger than life.
So when you start your story you should decide on the form you will use.
