How To Organize A Descriptive Essay: 10 Simple Tips

The purpose of writing a descriptive essay is to describe

  • An event
  • A person
  • A place
  • A thing

In a way, that reader could get the vivid and clear image about the subject. It includes your five senses to describe and to explain the topic.

  1. Sight
  2. Touch
  3. Hear
  4. Smell

Your paper would not need any statistics or data to describe the topic but your language, selection of right words, and style or tone will matter. You should have to be very descriptive. Your goal is to create a picture in reader’s mind. It is necessary to go in detail and enlist everything that comes to your mind related to the topic.
