Skill of the Week - January 9 2012, Author's purpose

Authors write for many reasons.  One is to inform, or give information on a topic.  Another is to influence, or persuade a reader to think a certain way.  A third reason authors write is express thoughts and feelings.  Lastly, an author writes to entertain.  A reader asks himself what the author wants him to know, believe, or feel.
