Remember these writing goals when writing a descriptive essay.
Depending on whether the topic is concrete or abstract, a large part of a descriptive essay will be sensory description or context.
This part of the essay has enough details and information for readers to clearly imagine whatever is being described (see part III for examples).
A descriptive essay is an essay that describes something – an object or person, an event or place, an experience or emotion, or an idea.
The goal of this kind of essay is to provide readers with enough detailed descriptions for them to be able to picture or imagine the chosen topic. Ideas and emotions are abstract topics – they cannot be touched.
