Descriptive Essay and How to Write One

Descriptive Essay and How to Write One This article will not only explain what a descriptive essay is, but will provide detailed information on how to write one yourself. What is a  Descriptive Essay The descriptive essay is one of the  four modes of discourse  and composition (Nordquist, 2016).   The other three modes are narration, exposition and argumentation.   While it is impossible to ever write purely in one mode (all four tend to overlap in one way or another), one mode can be emphasized above the other three.   In the descriptive essay, the mode that is focused on is the description mode:   the writer is challenged with describing an experience, surroundings, an object, or anything that can be communicated using the five senses. This essay is an effective way to hone one’s writing skills particularly in the area of attention to detail.   They are often included in student portfolios because the more one is required to focus on a thing and pay attention to it the more one is likely to be able to write effectively in any style (Nicolaidou 404).   As Baker, Brizee and Angeli (2013) put it, the  descriptive essay  is a genre in which the writer must â€Å"describe something—object, person, place, experience, emotion, situation, etc.† (par. 1).   Not only does this type of genre of writing help to develop a student’s skills in creating a written expression of a sensation, it also allows the writer to take a great deal of artistic license, as the experience of sensation depicted by the writer is a combination of the subjective and objective experiences and meant to be so. The ultimate goal of the descriptive essay is to give the reader a clear, unobstructed view, sense, feeling and experience of the phenomenon communicated by the writer.   If the reader can effectively conjure the subject in his mind or feel completely drawn into the experience, the writer can consider his descriptive essay a success.   Now you know what a descriptive essay is, so let’s look at some tips on how to write a descriptive essay and what topics are most suitable. What Can You Describe? You can describe anything you want in a descriptive essay. Choose a person, a place, a thing. Choose an experience. Choose a dream. People make great subjects for descriptive essays because there are so many facets to human beings, so many features—one can write pages on any person and barely get below the surface because there is always so much to say. Places make great subjects because every place is unique and has its own special charm, purpose and significance. Objects make great subjects because you can bring them to live through personification and really give the reader an all new sense of it. Experiences make great subjects because they are full of action and give you opportunity to be dynamic and fluid in your descriptions. They are also good for putting your reader in your shoes. Dreams make great subjects because they are so colorful and random—yet there is a beautiful (and sometimes frightening) logic to them! Describing a dream can be a really fun and insightful process! How to Write a Descriptive Essay Human beings have five senses—taste, touch, sight, smell, and hearing.   Imagine being without one of those senses, or, worse, without quite a few of them.   You would find life to be a bit more difficult than it presently is.   Why?   Our senses let us know the world around us—they keep us informed and aware of what’s going on.   A descriptive essay essentially does the same thing.   In effect, the descriptive essay is giving the world to your reader by way of words that evoke as many of the five senses as possible.   No matter what you are describing in your essay, you should always imagine that your reader is blind, deaf, fingerless, noseless, and hard of hearing.   In other words, you must be the senses for your reader.   How does your subject feel?   What does it do to your tongue when you taste it?   How does it hit your eyes, your ears?   Does it have a scent?   If you can answer these questions in vivid terms, you will be giving your reader the description he needs to form a concrete picture in his head of the subject or experience you are describing.   This is the essence of a descriptive essay. Show, Don’t Tell When writing your descriptive essay, the best advice you can possibly receive is this: show, don’t tell. The â€Å"show, don’t tell† technique allows the reader to experience what you are describing and puts him firmly in your shoes so that your senses become his senses. Telling the reader about an object takes him out of the experience—it removes him from the action and separates him from his senses. Instead of feeling the object, the reader is simply receiving data—information that goes into the brain but does little to stimulate the five senses. On the other hand, showing the reader the object gives him the opportunity to use his senses and participate in the experience. Some examples of how this technique is utilized might be helpful, so let’s take a look: As Chekhov illustrates in the image above, to say that the moon is shining certainly conveys a message—but it is a familiar message in familiar words. The words are so familiar in fact that while the eyes read them, the brain barely processes them. They mean something of course but they carry no weight, deliver no impact. The reader is left uninvolved in the experience of what the moon is doing. When the writer states, however, that there is â€Å"a glint of light on broken glass,† something happens in the mind of the reader: his brain is stimulated—the senses are evoked. Sight and touch especially are used here—broken glass is sharp and most readers will be able to imagine immediately what that image is like. Likewise, light glinting on the broken glass brings to mind a fragmented, jarring picture that is also effective in setting a scene, a mood, a feeling for the reader to enter into. The point of â€Å"show, don’t tell† is for the writer to create a set that the reader can enter. Notice, again, how Chekhov uses alliteration to help wrap the reader up in sounds (hearing is the third sense evoked in this way): we have the â€Å"l† sounds in â€Å"glint,† â€Å"light,† and â€Å"glass† along with the repetition of the â€Å"g† sounds in â€Å"glint† and â€Å"glass† and â€Å"t† sounds in â€Å"glint† and â€Å"light†. The tongue is literally â€Å"taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap† as Nabokov puts it in one of his most famous novels. If you are writing about a place where sound is particularly part of the experience, don’t just tell the reader what sounds are heard—produce the sounds for the reader using the very words you are writing. For crashing sounds, use a lot of â€Å"ck† words and â€Å"sh† words, as those sounds help the reader to literally hear the smashing and crashing of whatever is clapping or thundering in the scene. Be imaginative and let your musical side flow out as you choose the letters and terms in your writing. Descriptive Essay Format Barbara Fine Clouse notes that there are five tips to help the writer construct a perfect descriptive essay: 1.   Use a dominant impression to focus the description 2.   Utilize both objective and subjective descriptions as appropriate 3.   Provide concrete sensory details 4.   Make use of literary tools such as similes, metaphors and personification 5.   Remember the purpose of the essay and the audience (Clouse 142) These five tips can help the writer when it comes time to formatting the essay. First, they help the writer become oriented to the topic. A dominant impression is used to focus the description. If, for example, you are describing a carnival, choose a specific emotion—whether it is horror, excitement, anticipation, curiosity, wonder, fear, tension—you decide and use this impression to steer your description. Say that your impression of a carnival is one rooted in a feeling of horror: describe the sideshow carnies, their grotesque faces, the freaks that populate the tents, gargantuan signs that lord over the visitors, shrieking at them to stop what they are doing and run to see the latest attraction. When you focus on a dominant impression, you can more easily guide your mind to specific sights, sounds, and occurrences that will allow you to write good descriptions. Secondly, be both objective and subjective—i.e., let the reader know what you are feeling (or what h e should be feeling) but also give a sense of place that focuses more on the actual place than on your perception of it. Thirdly, use concrete sensory details—i.e., help the reader feel it, taste it, smell it, etc. Fourthly, use literary tools like personification to bring objects to life. Lastly, keep in mind that you are writing for a specific purpose: you are describing something—a whole thing! So don’t get lost in the details of just one part or element—keep the essay moving till you have covered all the points in your outline. Also, remember that you have a specific audience, too. If you know your audience, try to give them what you know they would like—just so long as you are able to stay true to your own vision of what it is you are setting out to describe. There’s nothing better than being able to please an audience while being true to your purpose! Give Your Paper a Beginning, Middle and an End The format of the descriptive essay should follow that of the other three modes of discourse:   it should contain a thesis—i.e., a purpose statement and supporting facts and details that provide the description of the subject identified in the opening introductory paragraph.   Consider it like this: the introduction sets the stage, the body performs the dance, and the conclusion lowers the court and lets the actors take a bow. In your introduction, worry mainly about laying out the scene for the reader and getting them situated. Give the reader a sense of place, time, feeling—whatever your dominant impression is, include it here so that the reader is oriented appropriately. This will be the beginning of your essay, and just like the beginning of a movie, it will let the audience know whether or not to continue on! The body of the paper will consist of paragraphs that communicate aspects of the subject, from factual data to sensual details.   This will be the middle of your essay. Each paragraph within the body of the paper should begin with a topic sentence.   A conclusion should come at the end that reiterates the main points of the descriptive essay in new words and provides a summary of the main idea expressed in the essay.   A descriptive essay can be long or short:   the prose does not have to be as formal as that used in an argumentative essay.   In many cases, the author should feel free to express himself with more creativity and freedom as the way in which words are used can help create a greater sense of the subject for the reader.   The stream of consciousness technique can even be utilized to help create a more immediate effect so that the reader feels immersed not only in the phenomenon being described but in the actual experience of seeing a thing for the first time, of feeling what is happening or seeing what is under the microscope in real time. The stream of consciousness technique allows the reader to let words and thoughts flow naturally without giving much concern to pretense, form, or even consistency. Internal thoughts are often a mixed bag of emotions, ideas, and fleeting impressions. Capturing some of these in your descriptive essay can really help to put the reader in your shoes. The conclusion is the end of your essay. This is the send-off—the last impression—the farewell to your reader! Take this opportunity to recap what you have described above or use this moment to convey an overall impression that the reader can take home. Last impressions are often just as important as first impressions—so don’t waste this opportunity to show something great to your reader. The conclusion should also help give balance to your paper. It should be proportional to the rest and roughly the same size as your beginning. If one or the other is out of proportion, your reader might feel slightly disoriented! The Five Senses Because the descriptive essay is all about utilizing the five senses, the writer should feel comfortable using words to effect a certain emotion in the reader, whether it is anticipation, fear, curiosity, excitement, joy:   the writer is free to choose how best to describe the subject—and the options available to the writer will vary greatly depending on the subject.   For instance, if the subject of the essay is a trek up the Himalayas, vivid action words and ejaculatory statements may be more appropriate than if the writer is describing a hard drive in his laptop.   Based on how the writer himself perceives the subject, the tone and approach will change—the format, however, should stay relatively the same. Whatever the subject, the five senses will help you to stay on task. Constantly ask yourself: How does it taste? How does it smell? How does it look? How does it sound? How does it feel? How to Start a Descriptive Essay An attention-grabber is always a great way to start an essay, regardless of the mode.   For a descriptive essay, a good attention-grabber is one that both identifies the subject and hooks the reader.   Can you do this in one line?   Yes—but you don’t have to give everything away in that one line.   A hook is exactly as it sounds—a sharp point upon which is speared the lure, the bait, the piece of crumb that the hungry reader is looking for.   You have the whole paper to flesh out your subject, so think of your attention-grabber as the headline.   Or think of the first lines of some of your favorite books.   What made them stand out?   How did they compel you to read on? Once you have your hook, finish up your introductory paragraph with clear, concise language that makes your subject obvious to your reader so that if a stranger stopped and asked what the essay was about, the reader could tell him after just reading the first paragraph.   There should be no surprises after the first paragraph.   At the same time, you can use your own emotions, thoughts and feelings to connect with the reader on a deeper level so that the full experience is something they can only obtain by reading the essay in its entirety. Don’t worry about getting everything right the first time around. Part of the beauty of writing is that you can go back and edit and revise your words until they are perfect for what you are trying to accomplish. Consider your first draft to be just a rough sketch. Know that you can go back and improve it later on. Let it sit for a while and give it another read after 20 minutes or half an hour: see how it hits you, whether it is effective in helping you to see, feel and experience the topic being described. If there are parts of the paper that you feel use too many needless words, or if there is a line that you think can be improved if it were just re-worded in a different way, go ahead and change it. The process of revision is one of the most important parts of writing. It is like Michelangelo going back over a piece of marble again and again until David appears. It takes more than a few chisels and blows of the hammer to produce every finely ingrained detail. So be patient with yourself and with your words. Give it time and energy and the write ones will come to you—sometimes all in a burst like a great flash of light. When that happens, be glad! Inspiration has struck and it’s your moment to seize it and let that pen fly! The Most Important Thing The most important thing to remember when writing a descriptive essay is to be organized:   nothing should be extraneous.   Every line and paragraph should serve a purpose.   Streamline the essay through revision so that it moves quickly and there are no places in it where the reader feels as though you are needlessly repeating yourself.   If you need to use a certain number of words and find yourself coming up short, go back to the subject and look at it anew.   Imagine it is the first time you have experienced it and forget everything you have already said about it.   Looking with a fresh pair of eyes can often get you the new line of sight you need to get over the hump. Conclusion The descriptive essay is your opportunity to describe a person, place, thing, or experience to a reader.   Be bold—be creative—be expressive—be original.   Make the descriptions as interesting as possible by immersing the reader in the environment, using words that evoke each of the five sentences.   If you are describing the beach on a cold, blistery day, make the reader hear the sounds, feel the pricks of water and wind, taste the salt in the sea, and see the hard sand matted down by rain.   The more you bring the reader into the experience, the more your descriptive essay will be a success. Now that you  have learned about a descriptive essay and how to write one, the next step is picking out a great descriptive essay topic  or viewing example descriptive essays.

Consumerism And Advertising Of The Time - 2169 Words

The 1920s were an economic boom, but a majority of the country could not enjoy the wealth and prosperity. Only a small percentage of the country enjoyed huge sums of wealth, and the majority of families, about 3/4s, were poor and lived in poverty (â€Å"Great Depression†). These statistics are surprising considering the growth of consumerism and advertising of the time. Even though most of the country did not share the wealth, they still engaged in the consumerism and culture of the time. Products started to be mass-produced and therefore more affordable. A culture of buying the latest and greatest products developed. Advertisements tempted people, promising that their product would give them the life they wanted. In order to keep up with the new products and devices, poorer families spent a majority of their incomes on unnecessary consumer goods (â€Å"1920s Vintage Ads†). For the rich, the culture of consumerism was not a problem as they had plenty of money to spare; however, for the poor this culture was damaging. Many people took out loans to pay for things such as cars and houses, and this was an economic problem that contributed to the depression (â€Å"Great Depression†). Even though most people’s lives were difficult in the 1920s, people were still hopeful. They believed in the country, themselves, the economy, and the idea that consumerism could improve your life.

Explaining Vital Financial Derivatives Employed Within Portfolio

Question: Discuss About the Vital Financial Derivatives Employed Within Portfolio Management? Answer: Introduction The current assignment indicates the implementation of suitable financial derivatives by the portfolio managers in order to enhance their overall investment return. Financial derivatives are deemed to be of four distinct types that facilitate the investors to attain increased access within the market. The implementation of derivative facilitates the investors to hedge their total exposure within the capital market (Berezhnoy et al. 2014). Such derivatives also facilitate the portfolio managers and the investors in order to apply important investment theories in order to attain high profits. The overall assignment generally analyses within hypothetical situation in which all the four distinct types of derivative instrument is analysed and managed. Finally, the total recommendation meant for the portfolio managers that might facilitate in enhancing the total process along with offering great capability for enhancing profits through employing the distinct derivative instruments. There exist distinct kinds of financial derivatives that might be employed though maintaining portfolio management of such derivatives those are explained: Forward Contract Derivatives Forward contract derivatives are considered as the simplest form of decorative instrument that is applicable just for one day. This is deemed as among the oldest contract forms the investors in order to hedge or loss control carries that out in upcoming years. The forward contract is deemed as an agreement that is to be carried out between two parties considering a product sale or certain instrument in the upcoming years (Bodie 2013). Such instrument is used widely at the time of future contracts intervention. Numerous investors are considering using the forward contracts in an efficient manner until the day for maintaining suitable exposure within market. It was also indicated that forward contracts are majorly carried out between two major counterparties in which there is less exchange responsible transactions. In account to the same, it was argued that the application of future contracts must not facilitate or oblige several parties for maintaining commitment in consideration to t he contract. Details regarding the forward contracts can be maintained confidential for the public for the reason that it is not that important to offer important details in consideration to the transactions (Dutta 2016). Forward contract facilitated investors to control the increasing prices in a better manner and decrease in certain losses that can attain income from the volatile capita market. In the recent years, forward contract is employed within currency exchange that is carried out by a bank. A forward contract example Particulars Value Value AUD payment 2,000,000 Current AUD/USD Rate 0.75 = 2,000,000 * 0.75 = 1500000 Forward Contract Rate 0.73 = 2,000,000 * 0.73 = 1460000 Expected AUD/USD Rate 0.72 = 2,000,000 * 0.72 = 1440000 Reduction in losses 20000 A company that employs AUD USD rate for decreasing the volatility within the exchange market for the payment, which requires to be transformed into USD. The total use of forward contract majorly facilitates in decreasing losses by $20000. This was deemed possible through employing a forward contract that dealt with overall exchange rate and decreased all the risks that might be experienced by an individual while exchanging payment. This majorly facilitates the investors to address the total exchange rate that helps in ecreasing certain risk within the capital market (F?t and Pop 2015). Future Contract Derivative Future contracts serve as a feasible transaction that might be carried out which facilitates the investors in carrying out suitable investment decisions. Such kind of contract is deemed identical with the forward contracts in which specific commodity sale is carried out on a particular upcoming date. In contrast, certain commodity prices are fixed within the recent date that facilitates in decreasing the type of price volatility that might think in the upcoming year. Future contracts employ exchanges that are carried out by a medium that facilitates and obliges several parties to address the part within bargaining. Future contracts carried out within a previously designed format that must be followed by an investor through carrying out investments and transaction (Frino, Mollica and Webb 2014). In addition, future contract consider following a regular settlement contract format in which the overall gains and losses can be realised on a specific day after the trading day commencement. Within future contracts, the buyers and sellers do not form the type of contract to enter within an agreement that they considerably transit within the exchange. For this reason, such exchange is generally accountable for certain transactions carried out within future contracts and is liable to pay all its parties. Future contract example Particulars Value Value Buying Gold 150 ounce Current Gold price 1358.63 = 150 * 1358.63 = 203794.5 Future contract 1365 = 150 * 1365 = 204750 Expected Price 1450 = 150 * 1450 = 217500 Reduction in losses 12750 From the total analysis of the future contracts is an instance that might be understood with decrease of $12750 worth the value in gold purchasing bus conductor. Such decrease was attained majorly for employing a futures contract that facilitates in the current prices locking related to gold along with facilitating the investors for gradually decreasing high losses in purchasing thee gold commodity (Johnson 2015). Such type of extensive employed facilitates the investors in enhancing their recent financial exposures within the market in a better manner. Option Contract Derivative Option contract derivative serves as a third option that can be employed by investors for effectively hedging exposure within capital market. The option contract facilitates investors in efficiently hedging against certain future volatility that can be expected by them. There are two kinds of options and they are greatly used by investors that include call option and put option. Call option is deemed appropriate that facilitates investors and purchases something at a future date at a specific price (Hou 2017). Moreover, put option majorly facilitates investors to sell certain things at a specific price. In addition, option contract offers an efficient selection to the traders as this might facilitate trade in future. An important selection facilitates investors in order to speculate market effectively and decreasing several extreme losses that might be carried out in the investment period. The option contract is majorly carried out within the support to an exchange to be an important measure that must be considered while the option trades are carried out. Option trades might facilitate the investors in enhancing their exposure within the market with several small premiums offered by the people. At any expense of premium, the investors might ignore certain losses that might take place in upcoming years. Recently, the option contact is in increased demand among the investors for this facilitates them in generating several risks and enhances the investment capability (Norden, Buston and Wagner 2014). Option contracts are carried out relied on process associated with specific instrument and such options are carried out relied on future price volatility for attaining increased investment returns (Lievenbrck and Schmid 2014). The major cost that was experienced by the option contractors is the higher amount that they are charged for carrying out trades. Implementation of pre mium amount supports the investors in decreasing capital blockage. This was previously carried out within future contracts and facilitates them in enhancing the investment ability. It was gathered that because of speculators of the option trading system and novice traders are capable to inflate and generate volatility within the market that in turn decreases market efficiency. Option Contract Example Particulars Value Calculation Formulas and Value Selling shares of Apple 2000 Buying Put Option Current price 162.96 2000 * 162.96 = 23396.7 Strike price 140 2000 * 140 = 19600 Premium 6 2000 * 6 = 12000 Expected Price 130 2000 * 130 = 16900 Actual Price 159 2000 * 159 = 25281 Reduction in losses 28900 - 25281= 3619 loss As per the example mentioned in the table above, option price of an Apple might not offer to deal with important speculation of $130. This gradually indicates the losses of an investor of amount $ 3619 after the person has invested with strike rate of $140 and premium rate of $6. Moreover, the current price with which an investor invested is $ 162.96. In addition, the price decreased by $ 159 that has resulted in a great loss of $ 3619. Swaps Derivative A highly complex contract type within derivative is deemed as swap contract that encompass effective speculation and important research before carrying out a trade. Swap derivatives are majorly carried out on several participants in whom investors employs a fixed rate for interest in order to enhance total gains attained from the investment. The swap trades facilitate investors to the swap interest rates and certain currency in order to increase total financial income. Along with the swap trades, companies are capable to avoid rtes of foreign exchange that might affect an investments overall return (Salazar 2014). Swap trades majorly carried out by the private contractors in order to negotiate among the parties in order to attain important advantages from certain spread. Swap trades are carried out by the investment bankers among the two parties for it facilitates in decreasing risks from the investment. However, Swap trades might facilitate enhancing total risk gathered from currenc y exchange rate that might affect and decrease certain income that can be generated from investment. Amount to be invested 150,000 Interest rate 1st country Interest rate 2nd country Exchange rate 3 0.333333333 savings 7% 3% loan 8% 4% Invested amount 450,000 Interest received 31,500 Converted to 2nd country 10,500 Invested amount 150,000 Invested paid 4,500 Total income 6,000 From total analysis of the given instance, it might be gathered that investment within first nation might eventually facilitate in attaining interest 450,000 that might be transformed to 10,500. Moreover, a loan within second nation code gradually attracts payment of 4500 hat can attain increased income of 6000 for certain investors. This is identified gradually as a swap trade that was carried out by the organizations and investors for enhancing total investment. Evaluating Desirability of Employing within Derivatives within Hypothetical Conditions with Suitable Critics After accomplishment of total analysis of four distinct types of derivative instruments, option contract along with futures contract is majorly recognised to extremely viable investment option. This might also facilitate investors to carry out trades devoid of any important risk. For this reason, certain hypothetical situations in the above conditions in certain instances that majorly indicate the implementation of an option trading along with future trading might facilitate the investors in conducting the investment decisions and carrying out trade within the market effectively (Khumawala, Ranasinghe and Yan 2016).
