Every author has their own style of writing, they each express them self with different elements. For instance many authors use literary elements to show the theme or tone. In short story “like two ships” Chris Macy uses literary elements to provide disheartening tone. He uses setting, characterization which turn out insecurities that cause a missed opportunity. As the reader we know that they both are interested in each other ,but the characters do not know.

As soon as “he entered the elevator” and asked politely “ground floor, please” she thought he sounds nice, but then she also started thinking “he wouldn’t notice me”. I think that is because she is in an elevator in which she can’t look at him, it’s very silent, you are only there for about one minute so there won’t have flowing conversation, and it might just be them two, so she starts thinking negatively, The setting does have an effect on the tone because since they are thinking negatively they are not getting enough courage to talk to one another. Since they weren’t in the elevator very long he notice she was blind to late. Also if it would have been somewhere else besides an elevator perhaps in a park they would have gotten more time, a better environment, and they would each notice each other’s disabilities then the tone would be very different.Every author has their own style of writing, they each express them self with different elements.
