y921f: Descriptive essay

I cant find the post I intended to add to, so I am here. Descriptive essays take many forms, and you can do much with it. It would do you great advantage to just stop a second and read two of my favorite, by great authors. Each is different, and accomplishes different things with the essay. The aim of descriptive essays is to provide a vivid picture of a person, location, object, event, or debate.
The master of descriptive essay (thoreau) http://www.concord.org/~kathy/Walden/wldpond.html
and my all time favorite, Twain: Two ways of seeing the River. http://grammar.about.com/od/60essays/a/twowaysessay.htm

The 15 minutes you take to read these may well move you ahead of using descriptive writing.
