Hints That Will Help You Write A Descriptive Paper About A Place


Descriptive Projects Can Be Fun and Easy

Good news! If you've been assigned a descriptive paper about a place, you will have an easy paper to write with these helpful hints. Plus, descriptive essays are some of the most fun and easy types to write. Because you will be talking about a place you would like to visit, have visited, or even your own room, you will get to know or already know your subject matter very well.
  • Hint One: Keep Your Subject Narrow and Focused
  • Remember one thing that will help you not only in this paper but in all future essays-- the more narrow, the more focused your topic is, the better your essay will be. So do not consider even writing about a big place-- not in an essay shorter than 30 pages! No, indeed. For short projects you need a small place-- a tree house, a room, your favorite cubicle in a library and the kind of quiet there-- the smells of old books and the feel of the wood. As you can tell-- it's all about the details.
  • Hint Two: Structuring Your Descriptive Project
  • When it comes to structure, you will want to use the typical structure of a five paragraph term paper. Your structure will move from an introduction, through body paragraphs (each one could focus on one detail about your place), and then a closing paragraph, which says something special, that will make your reader think about what you have said.

    Sample Structure

    1. An Introduction - Sets up the concept of a favorite place of retreat as a child that you or your father built-- the place you would go to think and wonder.
    2. Body Paragraphs- Describe different elements of the tree house-- one paragraph about the structure and how far up in the trees it might have been. Another paragraph about what you put in the tree house-- little furniture and whatnot.
    3. A closing paragraph-Which Sums up why the tree house was special to you.
  • Hint Three: Don't Forget To Write a Solid Thesis Statement
  • Every paper needs a thesis statement. This statement sums up what the entire paper is about. If you have trouble writing these, try an I statement, "In this paper, I'm going to discuss my favorite place as a child: my tree house."
