Before writing your own descriptive essay, note one thing about all of the above essays: they do more than just describe. They come to some sort of point about their topics or make some sort of commentary indirectly. Make sure your essay has a point, too, that it is not just three pages of drivel about how gorgeous your cat Fluffy is. Ask yourself questions before you write your essay: Why is it important to you to write about Fluffy? What have you learned from owning Fluffy? What could someone learn from your experiences with Fluffy? Then try to incorporate the answer to one of those questions, either throughout your essay or in a powerful conclusion. 500 words, page number, creative title double spaced.
