2. What does it entail? Before reading the file: It entails many descriptive words, adjectives, people, places and things. After reading the file: It should contain similes and metaphors; it should create vivid and original imagery: both mental pictures and emotional feelings. The most effective description is developed through careful choices of vocabulary - precise vocabulary; We should always try to avoid overuse of describing words; instead, we should work hard to choose a more precise word.Also, we should include carefully chosen precise verbs and nouns! We must create mental pictures by using original, vivid similes and metaphors to describe sights, sounds, feelings. symbolism, metaphor and irony. It would help to 'switch places' and for a momentreflect on becoming your own reader. When you read you like to be made to feel!

1. What in your opinion is Descriptive Writing? Initial thought : We think descriptive writing is writing a paragraph/pasage using descriptive words to describe the surroundings/people or the event happening. After reading through pdf file : Descriptive writing is characterized by sensory details, which appeal to the physical senses, and details that appeal to a reader’s emotional, physical, or intellectual sensibilities. Determining the purpose, considering the audience, creating a dominant impression, using descriptive language, and organizing the description are the rhetorical choices to be considered when using a description.

2. What does it entail? Initial thought :It entitles many describing words (adjectives). Similes and metaphors are also forms of descriptive words. After reading the pdf file :Description uses tools such as denotative language, connotative language, figurative language, metaphor, and simile to arrive at a dominant impression. It entails precise vocabulary, original, vivid similes and metaphors to describe sights, sounds, feelings.

3. How is it different from other text types (e.g. expositions, formal letters) you have learnt? Initial thought :It does not really have a story flow unlike a narrative writing. It is more of a focus on a certain event/person/surrounding. After reading the pdf file :

1. What in your opinion is Descriptive Writing? Before reading the file: I think that descriptive writing means writing a passage with great details. After reading the file: It means to describe the events, people, and things in the story in order to show the reader and let the reader imagine what is happening in the story and hence understand the story more. Also, it means to convince the reader that something/someone/someplace is as such and to let the reader feel like he/she is having a real-life experience on the issue.

3. How is it different from other text types (e.g. expositions, formal letters) you have learnt? Before reading the file: It is less general and focuses more on an event, person, place, or item. After reading the file: In writing to describe, your aim is not to tell a story, or even to 'be there' yourself within the writing; rather, it is to focus your 'camera' on details - close up and ultra-close up at times – to help your reader feel as if he or she were actually there, experiencing the thing being described.
