    Akbar's part- The author Justin halpern is still writing and postings quotes on his page that his dad says. Also Justin dads read the book before it came out and didn’t mention anything about the quotes, just about the parts Justin says in the book, which is interesting, because you would think Justin halpern dad would like to think about his part in the book more, but cared more about his son, but directly doesn’t show it. This shows his characteristics, and how everything in the book is really true and real.

    **What are the most important Master Techniques to your genre?
    Point of View--when written in the first person, it gives the reader insight on what the main character is thinking and feeling and what their opinions are. Makes the emotion stronger and truer.
    Characterization--gives the reader information on characters other than the one narrating. This information helps to explain and support the main characters feelings and opinions towards other people.

    In drama, the most important techniques are definitely dialogue, as that's what the play is comprised of, and movement, which is the only way for the audience to know where the setting is and how the characters are feeling.
    Short stories and drama are mostly different, as they are separate genres and can have different master techniques. For example, movement is something key in a play that has no place in a short story, and in short stories the point of view is able to be manipulated, whereas in drama it's all told with an omniscient perspective. Also, the method of creating character's personalities is different because in drama the dialogue is the only way for the audience to get to know a character.

The third time you share a cup of tea, you become family, and for our family, we are prepared to do anything, even die, you must make time to share three cups of tea. We may be uneducated. But we are not stupid. We have lived and survived here a long time.' (79) Three Cups of Tea.

    One major difference is point of view. Some nonfiction books are written in first person, while others are written in third person. Another difference is a variation in plot structure. Some books have a traditional plot structure, while others have in medias res.

    What are the most important master techniques in the genre ?
    Movement because this is what carries us through the story and if it doesn't have good movement, then the book wouldn't flow as well as they did.

    Short stories ended with a restatement of the title, main idea
    Drama ended with the resolution of conflicts and endings for all the characters involved
    For drama, something interesting is that the ending of a play is the most difficult part to write. There has been a conflict of interests between the characters, however many there are, and the ending has to resolve that so the audience can enjot the play. It's even more difficult if the play has multiple conflicts.

    The most important master techniques in short stories were plot structure, characterization, conflict, and the point of view because they are the vital parts of making a story. Also, there has to be an interesting title or people won't want to read it.
    In drama, the most important techniques are definitely dialogue, as that's what the play is comprised of, and movement, which is the only way for the audience to know where the setting is and how the characters are feeling.
