RE: Objective Tone Gena Bingham 1/7/2013 5:31:10 PM When writing a paper for buisness it is best to use an objective tone and just stick with the facts. However when writing a narrative story about something from a personal experience in your life, it is appropriate , I think, to add you own opinions, and your own personality into the writing. If your writing about something you did not experience first hand, it is still ok to add in your own opinions on the topic. A lot of times it is your personality in the writing that hold the readers attention. For instance if you wrote a weekly news article about events that took place within your city or town, how you decided to deliver that article to your readers (your style) is most likely why people will continue to read it. It's your tone, personality, and opinion on the events you write about that the reader enjoys. And that is why adding personality and opinion into your writing is sometimes necessary.
