500-word descriptive essay
500-word descriptive essay. Keep in mind that your essay will focus on portraying one of the following:
• A person (from your own life, movie character, famous personality)
• A place
• A memory
• A dream
• An experience (negative/positive/ personal or someone else’s)
• An object (a musical instrument, a structure, a piece of art, a book)
Ultimately, whatever you can perceive or experience can be the focus of your descriptive writing. Don’t be afraid to stir emotions, to lift spirits, to enhance imaginations galore! Use all five senses to describe what you felt, heard, saw, tasted, touched, smelled. Take the reader to that you knew, in which you came out triumphant today to speak of such event/ experience.
Keep in mind that your essay should have an introduction, body and conclusion.
The first paragraph of an essay is the essay’s introductory paragraph. The purpose of an introduction is to “introduce” your reader to the essay topic. An effective introduction gradually leads the reader through the presentation of the topic to the essay’s specific thesis. A thesis statement is often delivered as the last line of the introductory paragraph.
The middle of the essay is the essay body. The body is the “meat” of the essay. If you imagine essay structure as a sandwich, the introduction and the conclusion (the closing paragraph of an essay) are the pieces of bread that surround or frame the “meat” or essay body. It is the essay body that advances, proves, and develops the essay’s major claim (or thesis).
“Most college essays have three supporting points, developed at length over three separate paragraphs (the essay body). Each of the supporting paragraphs should begin with a topic sentence that states the point to be detailed in that paragraph. Just as a thesis provides a focus for the entire essay, a topic sentence provides a focus for a supporting paragraph” (Langan 11).
Lastly, the final part of an essay is the essay’s conclusion. A concluding paragraph “closes” or “concludes” the essay topic. It gradually leads your reader out of the essay, the same way that the introductory paragraph leads your reader into the essay. A conclusion often summarizes the essay by briefly reminding the reader of the thesis and the main supporting points. It can also present a concluding thought about the subject of the essay.
