How to Write a Descriptive Essay?

Demonstrate how you would write an essay using description and narration as the chief method of development.

The description will be the dominant technique used to develop a distinct impression of your topic. Remember that description must appeal to the senses: taste, touch, sound, sight, and smell. While you need not appeal to every sense in your essay, be sure to give the reader enough description so that they can be a part of your topic’s development. You may certainly use figurative language in your descriptions – simile, metaphor, personification, etc. Your choice of words may greatly influence your reader’s impression of your topic. Be careful to present your topic as you would like it to be interpreted.
