An Event Experienced with Someone
OUTLINEYou will include in the same document, a brief, simple outline. This can be a sentence or a concept/topic outline. It will be no more than one page. If you do not include a proper outline, I will deduct 10 points from your earned grade. Writing AssignmentHere’s your writing prompt. Think about a person in your life. Write an essay in which you will describe an event you experienced with that person. It might be a concert, a fancy dining experience, an argument, whatever you want, within the etiquette of a college course, please. You will write a 5-paragraph essay using the senses to tell me about the event with this person. Remember, be descriptive, dig deep. Talk about the setting, sounds, smells, touch of objects in the scene, and so on. Use descriptive language, I repeat.No fluff, please. I can spot it a mile away.In 500 to 750 words, write the descriptive essay. You will write it in 3rd person (“she, him,” etc. NOT “I, me, my…” and NEVER “you”). Why? We write scholarly essays in 3rd person. Also, DO NOT SAY, I think or I believe. NEVER end with In conclusion, and the thesis cannot be a question.The last sentence of the first paragraph is your thesis statement and I will grade it as such. BOLD TYPE THE THESIS STATEMENT. Good luck.Before you submit for a grade, read the essay aloud and listen for mistakes. You will probably hear some.Purpose: to describe something using sensory (use the senses) language. I repeat. RemindersFirst: Brainstorm, or take a few thoughtful notes, before you write. Then…Accumulate as many details as you can about your topic, and then sift through them, discarding those that are irrelevant, weak, or unrelated to the impression you would like to convey.Organize your ideas.Use vivid language and varied sentence structure.Remember this is not a narrative.
