Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.
Writing... Do you enjoy it? Most people don't enjoy it. Have you ever wondered why then, do a select few write? These writers are inspired to tell stories. This inspiration comes either from their life experiences or others whom they know. Sometimes it's their own imagination that makes them create wonderful stories. There are other times when writers write to provide information about different topics or to convince their readers about something. Whatever the circumstances, writers have a reason for writing and this is called the ‘writer's purpose'. The most common types of writers' purpose are: to share the excitement of an event, to entertain, to provide information, to influence the reader and to stimulate imagination.
Think about the last time a story made you laugh, cry or tremble with fear. These stories are written with a particular purpose in mind: to entertain the reader. Have you read books like the Chronicles of Narnia or Lord of the Rings? These stories transport you into an entirely different world and encourage you to create vivid images and scenes. Also, as a child you might have read fairy tales and fables. These stories usually have a moral in order to teach values. In addition, there are humorous stories as well as tragedies. Such writing is also known as fiction.
While fiction entertains, non-fiction writing makes you think as it usually has different opinions supported by facts and real-life examples. Non-fiction writers spend a long time researching their subject by reading extensively on it. They may also interview other people to get to know various view points. They do this to ensure that they convey accurate information to the reader.
Examples of this type of writing are news articles, encyclopaedia entries, biographies, diaries, scientific papers and histories. Writers also write to persuade their audience about something. These texts use specific techniques to make the reader aware of a subject and then care about it by thinking about it in a certain way. Examples of this are letters to the editor, discursive and argumentative essays or persuasive speeches. So, the next time you read a text, story or article, see if you can identify the writer's purpose.

AFriends, family and acquaintances
BTheir own creative intellect
CTheir own lives
