Writing: Descriptive essay

A descriptive paragraph or essay is characterized by the use of Adjectives . it tells how something looks, feels, smells, tastes, and/or sounds. A good description is a word picture; the reader can imagine the object, place, or person in his or her mind. Here is an example of a Descriptive paragraph .

When I was  two or three years  old, I lived in a  house  that had a  strange,
atmosphere. I do  not remember anything about the house except the stairway.
It was  dark, squeaking, and quite  narrow, and its  steps were a  little  high for me
to climb  up. From the  bottom of the stairway, it seemed like an endless climb
to the  top. Beyond the  darkness  at the  top  of the  stairway, there  was  an
elegant, middle-aged woman leaning against the wall. I had  to pass her every time
I went to my room, for my room was the first room beyond the stairs on the
second floor. The woman wore a beautiful dress  with a  quiet pattern and  a  tinge
of blue, and her peaceful eyes stared at me  every time  I went up  the  stairs. As
I carefully climbed up the last step, her eyes became  fixed on me. She didn’t
talk, nor did  she  move. She  just stood there and watched me  climb up  the
stairs .One day I touched her, but she  did  not react. Her face did  not change
expression, nor did  she  even blink. She  just kept staring at me  with her
glittering eyes. Later, we  moved out of the house, and I never saw her again.
Now I know that the  woman was a  mannequin. My aunt, who lived in the
house, used  it for her dress making class.
