Descriptive Writing

It is the writing of a story in great detail with the use of many descriptive words such that one who reads it would feel like they are there at the scene of the story.

What in your opinion is descriptive writing?

It focuses mainly on describing the scene, in terms of actions, sounds, appearance etc and uses an abundance of adjectives and other descriptive words so as to give the reader a realistic feel as though he/she is indeed experiencing it firsthand.

It might also involve the use of expressions like similes, metaphors and personification.

Use your five sense to describe the setting and let the reader feel as if he or she were actually there, seeing the setting for themselves

We can actually make use of literary devices such as similes, metaphors, irony, symbolism to describe sights, sounds, feelings and create actual mental pictures in your mind as well as the reader's.

It is the use of descriptive words and emotion to create a story so realistic that readers will be able to feel what the person in the story will be feeling as well as imagine the scene

Relevations

i) We should stick to just describing and not having too much stories

ii) Use 3rd person instead of writing as 1st person so that you will be an onlooker who is able to see everything you have written in your story.

iii) When writing descriptive, you not only have to describe the noun but also to add your feelings in so as to be able to allow your reader to be thinking and feeling with you in your story

It uses descriptive words such as adjectives, personifications, metaphors and similes to describe settings, people, etc.

How is it different from other text types?

It requires the use of more description to create a vivid image of a scene or character in the reader's mind.

Excessive description such as using too many adjectives may weakens your writing.

You can describe about a person you know or a place you have been to so that it'll be easier to describe as you are familiar with it but do not tell a story based on it as descriptive writing is not narrative writing.

It requires the strong command of the English language

Describing using the five sense - sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell.

Literary devices such as similes and metaphors can be used too and they can strengthen the underlying message the author is trying to convey.

Does not make a point or opinion, it can be used within almost all the text types to desrcribe certain things. (e.g. in examples that try to build up on a point)

vivid description must seem like the writer is showing the reader what is being described, instead of just telling

3.How is it different from other text types?

It does not have a format, unlike formal letters. Instead, there are many different ways to describe a certain object, event or even feeling.

What does it entail?

It uses a wide range of vocabulary and descriptive words (vivid description). It should also focus more on describing and not narrating.

It also focuses on the most prominent and unique feature of the place or thing that is breathtaking.

1. What in your opinion is Descriptive Writing?

It tells a story and usually incoporates a lesson learnt. It is generally more informal and casual as compared to letters, exposition or argumentative essays. It uses flowery language and literary devices. Also, it conjures images of whatever the writer is describing in the minds of the readers. Descriptive writing is like painting a "word picture" to the reader so that he can "see" what is being described. Descriptive Writing allows reader to feel the story by using his/her 5 senses, namely hear, sight, touch, smell and taste.
