Write a descriptive essay. Your topic must be focused on this idea: Write a complete thesis telling us about a place you have lived or visited (perhaps a vacation) or an incident such as a car accident or a storm that were in. Tell us what it meant to you to go to this place or to be in this situation. Describe it to us in detail so that we can experience it, too. Remember, this is about one specific event to write your descriptive essay. Descriptive Writing a Descriptive Essay Four items of a descriptive:
• It creates a tone, an image, a feeling, about your topic.
• It uses specific examples to support this tone.
• It supports those examples with the senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch.
• It brings your essay alive for your reader; the reader can actually imagine what you are writing about because of the vivid details you provide.
