  • 7. Facts  An author will use current facts to support his point.  To do this, he must do some research to learn about his topic.  Often, the facts will convince the readers to agree with the point the author wants to make.
  • 8. Strong Language  A writer has to be very careful about the words he chooses to make his point.  He might write a draft of his essay or speech and then us a dictionary or thesaurus to replace some simple words with stronger, more effective ones.
  • 9. Things to remember:  You need to keep in mind that one reason a writer writes is to persuade people to believe something.  In order to do this, the writer has to be careful about doing research and using very specific language to make a point.  Lots of persuasive writing can reach your emotions as a reader.
