Cause and effect

  1. 1. Cause and Effect
  2. 2. Cause and Effect  Everything that we do (effect) has been the result a certain action (cause)  Authors will use cause and effect in their writing to challenge the reader to think about their characters carefully. Without cause and effect, stories would be boring and no one would read them.
