...Leonardo Castillo Enc 1101 M/W 5:00 pm 10/1/2012 Word count: 709 Descriptive Essay Rough draft It’s approximately four o’ clock in morning and I’m in the locker room changing my clothes. My colorless hands are chilly, my feet are weary and my body feels like is going to give up and collapse after working eight hours in a refrigerated warehouse. Even though my body just wants to give way, I manage to drag my feet all the way to my vehicle, and start rushing home which is the only thing I want to do after a long night of work. The best part of driving home at this hour of the day is that I have an open road almost all to myself. The streets are nearly empty, the drive nice and smooth and the best part is that there are no police so you can run through these streets like there’s no tomorrow. Also there are no rays of sunshine burning my eyes like in the day, the weather is nice and cool that I don’t even need to turn on my a/c which has been throwing nothing but burning air. As I get closer to home I could only think about going straight to comfy bed; however, it is not going to happen because this is the only free time during the day that I have time to study. As I am getting to the door my eyes feel unfocused and my eyelids are feeling heavy. Now that I made it to the white tarnished door, I am shuffling through my key chain to find the correct key. The darkness of the night makes it difficult to find the right one; thus, I lift my arm up toward the sky to see if...

Transition + Paragraph Type

...Different Types of Paragraph Descriptive paragraph: A descriptive paragraph has sentences that work together to present a single, clear picture (description) of a person, a place, a thing, an event, or an idea. Descriptive paragraphs let the reader touch, taste, see, hear and smell what you are describing. The reader should feel as if they can see what you are describing clearly. You want to paint a picture as you write the descriptive paragraph. Samples of descriptive paragraphs: Sample 1 My friend, Andrew, is really weird. First of all, he is only twenty four years old, but he dresses as if he is living in 1950, instead of 2009. He combs his hair completely slicked back, and his clothes are always too small for him, but he seems to never notice. His teeth are also never clean, and his breath is horrible. He thinks he is cool, but he repulses women. One day he tried flirting with a girl, and she ran from him. In addition, he eats the weirdest foods. For example, the other day, he brought over a hardboiled egg and mixed it with peanut butter. Andrew also has the loudest and most embarrassing laugh, and he laughs at things that no one else thinks is funny. For instance, one day he told a joke that no one found funny, but he started laughing at his own joke and loud, which made other people turn around. Furthermore, he has the most ridiculous accent; he was born in America, and his parents were born in America, and none of his relatives have accents. In addition, he......

...Jessica Gibson I think my essay could have been a lot better than what I did. My essay lacked sequential order. I feel like my sentences could have been a bit more complex also. I think my topics did address my thesis statement the correct way. My paragraphs did not have a strong closing to support my topic. My essay only had little coherence; It flowed in certain portions of the essay. I think the order of my essay could have been revised from less important to most important. I think I did have strong evidence to support my topic but I could’ve used more vivid language. I also think the essay did reflect the evidence and explained the importance. I didn’t use many transitions in the essay neither. I think I could have used more transitional words to help my essay flow better. My goal when rewriting my essay is to be as vivid as possible. I admit my rough draft had many errors but I will try my best to avoid those errors when writing my final draft. My final draft will have better sentence structure and more transitions to help my essay flow better. I will try my best to support my topics in each paragraph so my essay. My final draft should be fresh and interesting. I think I didn’t paste myself for my rough draft and was trying to get the essay done. I must learn to paste myself and take out time to get all my thoughts together to improve my essay. I will try to use some of the techniques from the class to have a successful essay....

...a companion to the wise alone with the night and the last branch to creak in the heaviest wind. He often came to survey the fields and the clouds before his hunt, to listen to the steady sound of the stream passing through reeds under the bridge, while combing his feathers for the unwanteds—whatever they might be." Here is a descriptive essay about a first visit to a favorite diner written by a student at Roane State Community College:"When entering the door at Lou’s, two things are immediately noticeable: the place is rarely empty and seems to consist of a maze of rooms. The first room, through the door, is the main part of the restaurant. There is another, rarely used, dining room off to the right. It was added during the oil well boom of the seventies. Through the main dining room is yet another room; it guards the door leading into the kitchen. This room contains the most coveted table in the place. The highest tribute Lou can bestow on anyone is to allow them access to seats at this table. This table is the family table; it is reserved for Lou’s, and her daughter Karen’s, immediate family and treasured friends." Here is an example of a descriptive essay from St. Cloud State:"Billy Ray's Pawn Shop and Lawn Mower Repair looked like a burial ground for country auction rejects. The blazing, red, diesel fuel tanks beamed in front of the station, looking like cheap lipstick against the pallid, wrinkled texture of the parking lot sand.

Descriptive Paragraph of the Beach Scene in the Yakatan

...RADOSLAV RAFAILOV Student id: AC1303980 Computer information systems EN120.3.1 English Composition Assignment 2_02 My recent trip to the beaches at The Yucatán Peninsula, in southeastern Mexico reminds me of one of the most beautiful and spectacular places I’ve ever been. The beach smells fresh, almost like a new tropical breeze air freshener. Next to me is the Caribbean ocean, bright as a cloudless noon sky, washes onto the white sand. Looking at the waves’ white foam; then, I let my senses enjoy the sound as they break on the beach, almost like a shaken-up champagne bottle being opened. The sand is hot and looks like gold blended in with little white crumbs; it sparkles like the diamonds showcased in a high-end jewelry store and feels like walking on ashes from freshly extinguished fire. Despite the heat, walking on the warm, crystal sand pacifies my soul. I set up my folding lounger under the shade of a palm tree and explore my surroundings. The colorful towels spread out all over the beach are covered by bronzed figures. A net is up towards the water, and a few more figures dive to save a falling volleyball. Not far from the shore, you can see the coral sitting still in the wild and shallow water. People are laughing and playing in the burning sand, and others are relaxing on the beach reading their books while enjoying the bright rays of light coming from the sun. In a distance, I see occasional jet skis speeding over the waves, and sometimes, I can see a......

Effective Paragraph

...Characteristics of an Effective Paragraph • Direction: a strong topic sentence that states the main idea and sets the course of the paragraph. It answers the question, “What is your point?” • Unity: makes one main point and sticks to that point throughout the paragraph • Coherence: ideas in the paragraph are logically connected and easy to follow ------------------------------------------------- • Development: main idea is well supported with details, facts, examples, reasons, etc. Unity Unity refers to the extent to which all of the ideas contained within a given paragraph "hang together" in a way that is easy for the reader to understand. When the writer changes to a new idea -- one which is not consistent with the topic sentence of the paragraph -- the writer should begin a new paragraph. Unity is important because it aids the reader in following along with the writer's ideas. The reader can expect that a given paragraph will deal only with one main topic; when a new paragraph begins, this signals that the writer is moving on to a new topic. Consider the following example. Note that there are two main ideas presented in this paragraph. The topic sentence indicates that the paragraph will deal with the subject of "employees' attitudes," but the paragraph shifts unexpectedly to the topic of "management's attitudes." To achieve unity in this paragraph, the writer should begin a new paragraph when the switch is made from employees to......

Loyalty is known as a state of being faithful, devoted, honest, supportive, trustworthy, and obedient to a person , but can be hard to find and cause betrayal. When I think about loyalty, I think of a person who is there for me unconditionally through ups and downs and trials and tribulations. This person is honest with me even when it hurts and supportive of me even when they disagree with me. Loyalty is being faithful. Faithfulness in a relationship is showing that you are reliable, true to your word, and keep your promises. Being trustworthy is showing that you are dependable, loyal, and reliable. When you are working at a retail store as cashier, they will first evaluate you to make sure you are trustworthy enough to handle the cash that goes in and out of the cash register. You show your loyalty by being honest at all times. Honesty is being sincere, frank, and up front. Sincerity is being humble and genuine. In the......

Paragraph 1

...Paragraph 1 Thank you for considering me for the position of Sales Manager at Einstein Furniture and Design in Dallas. Interior design has always fascinated me and after working at a small furniture store in my hometown, I fell in love with how creative one can be in this field. Cindy Wilbanks, my ninety-year-old manager at the time, was a true inspiration. Her knowledge and experience in interior design paved the way for my continued interest in designing spaces and creating one of a kind experiences for customers. Ms. Wilbanks’ fifty years of experience and her unique wealth of knowledge encouraged me on a daily basis. She worked her way up over the years and never gave up on her dream of owning her own store. She indeed opened and ran a successful store of her own and landed herself at the top of the industry. She eventually sold her legacy store, becoming one of the wealthiest women in Texas. Thankfully, she decided to train individuals like myself and worked in the industry with an undeniable passion all of her life. I’m excited that I now have that same passion for my career and I look forward to visiting with you to discuss what I can bring to your team. Paragraph 2 Like I told you before, there is a position open here at Schmaltz Bookkeeping Service. The position is as assistant to my boss, Glendora Brock. I know you feel like you don’t have the experience to be an assistant in the bookkeeping world, but I honestly feel like you would be perfect. I......

Then, whatever, was outside in the darkness also breathed, and the huge silence of the night seemed to come inside the camper, stifling them. It was then he decided to pack up and move to a motel. Comments on narration: • Normally chronological (though sometimes uses flashbacks) • A sequential presentation of the events that add up to a story. • A narrative differs from a mere listing of events. Narration usually contains characters, a setting, a conflict, and a resolution. Time and place and person are normally established. In this paragraph, the "story" components are: a protagonist (Hanson), a setting (the park), a goal (to camp), an obstacle (nature), a climax (his panic), and a resolution (leaving). • Specific details always help a story, but so does interpretive language. You don't just lay the words on the page; you point them in the direction of a story. • This narrative serves as the opening anecdote that illustrates the topic of the story Exposition This family was a victim of a problem they could have avoided-a problem that, according to Florida park rangers, hundreds of visitors suffer each year.

Descriptive Essay

...Writing a Descriptive Essay Directions An essay has the same elements as a well-written paragraph. A paragraph has a topic sentence; an essay has a thesis statement. A paragraph is developed with supporting statements; an essay has three paragraphs based on the thesis statement's supporting ideas. A paragraph has a concluding sentence; an essay has a concluding paragraph. An introduction does two things: it gets your reader's attention, and it presents the thesis statement. The thesis statement identifies the topic of the essay. Look at the introductions below Example #1 If we were to place the body of every teenager who died in an alcohol-related accident in the last five years endto-end, the line would circle the globe three times. Every year, hundreds of teenagers lose their lives because of drunk drivers. Driving drunk is a growing problem in our society, and the consequences are great. Example #2 Hundreds of teenagers lose their lives because of drunk drivers. It is a problem that affects students in every school in America. Driving drunk is a growing problem in our society because more and more teens are drinking and then driving without considering the serious consequences that could result from their actions. These consequences include financial burdens, sorrow caused to those losing loved ones, and the senseless reduction of our greatest natural resource: our young people. Which introduction catches your interest and pulls you into the text?......

...p Types of Paragraph and Samples | English 1014-1 | | Define, Classify, Casual (Cause and Effect), Compare and Contrast, Example, Process Analysis(Directional and Informational) | | Marcus K August | 3/27/2012 | | Narration Paragraph Narration paragraphs are most frequently used in fiction and personal statements. As such, they will contain all necessary components of action development: protagonist, setting, goal, obstacle, climax and resolution. Writing a narration paragraph requires, consequently, accounting for sequential order of events and chronology. There are many descriptive elements included in the body of a narration paragraph but, if composed correctly, the paragraph will prioritize action over description. Exposition Paragraph Often times, this kind of a paragraph is used as a component of other types of writing. It’s written in order to clarify or explain problems and phenomena. Writing exposition paragraphs requires strict focus on evidence and objective language. It can contain elements of comparison and contrast, or cause and effect writing as both facilitate accurate exposition of the subject-matter. Definition Paragraph Definition paragraphs are used in order to explain the meaning, origin and function of things. They are used both in academic writing and fiction. To write a definition paragraph, writers should concentrate on the role of its subject in the context of the essay and account for evidence as well as examples......
