Tone and mood both deal with the emotions centered around a piece of writing. Though they seem similar and can in fact be related causally, they are in fact quite different.

Tone
Tone is the author’s attitude toward a subject. If we were to read a description of a first date that included words and phrases like “dreaded” and “my buddies forced me to go on the date”, we could assume that the individual didn’t really enjoy the date.

Mood is the atmosphere of a piece of writing; it’s the emotions a selection brings to life for the reader.


In writing, mood is changed by the words the author chooses to use. Word choice can create a mood of suspense, happiness, romance, or even terror.
