Crafting a Descriptive Essay On Nature: 5 Helpful Tips

Essays are writings about a place, a person, event or any given topic. There are numerous types of essays. Each is set apart by its content and approach to the subject at hand. The major types include the following:

  • Expository
  • Argumentive
  • Narrative
  • Informative
  • Descriptive

All the above may have a similar approach to how they are conceived and written, but in this article, I will highlight how to write an ace descriptive one majoring on nature in five major ways:

  1. Topic analysis
  2. A writer, freelance or otherwise, should grasp a sound understanding of the topic provided, in this case nature. Nature is a vast topic with many things to talk about. A writer can choose to write about nature in general or choose a specific aspect of nature to describe. Whatever the choice, the writer is at greater advantage if he chooses an angle he is most familiar with to avoid desertion of points and unnecessary content additions. There is nothing worse than running out of ideas to write about, so choose carefully what you are passionate about in nature.

  3. Research
  4. Upon choosing an aspect of nature that you will write about, you must carry out extensive research. You should never lie to yourself thinking that all you have in your mind is enough. The world is versatile so you need to gain an up to date understanding of the aspect so that you don’t end up writing about a problem that has already been solved.

  5. Content presentation
  6. Descriptive essays are all about creating a vivid picture of what you are talking about. To do this, one needs to carefully arrange the researched ideas in a systematic manner such that the chosen aspect is creatively brought out.

  7. Style
  8. All essays have a similar style in which they are presented. They are presented in:

    • Introduction
    • Content
    • Conclusion

    A good writer should capture the attention of the reader in the introduction so that the reader is convinced to continue writing. It should have an enticing clue to what the essay is about.

    In the content section you narrate all your points. This part carries the major meaning, so you should properly use it to draw out the idea.

    In the conclusion you should summarize your work and possibly give suggestion where possible.

  9. Revision
  10. After you have written or typed your essay, it’s important to proofread your work carefully to make sure that there are no errors in it.

    Writing is an art in its own way and thus can only be perfected through practice.
