Did your teachers give you a task to write a descriptive essay about your mother? Do you feel like you have no ideas? Do you want to get a good mark but have no clue how to cope with this home task? Do not hurry to be sad as there is good news for you! In this article you will read some tips and pieces of advice which will definitely help you to write a descriptive essay about your mother.
It is obvious that before starting doing something you have to know a lot about it. If you want to write a brilliant descriptive essay, you have to gather the information. No online research will help you at this point, since it is very personal, and Google will not tell you more about this dear person than you will have if you try to pay attention and remember little things. Here are some pieces of advice where to gather the information.
While preparing for writing the essay you get a big amount of information and cannot remember everything. Even in the process of writing itself you can forget something really important. That is why we advise you to make a list with some notes. There is no need to create a big plan. It is enough to write down some items. Believe, a plan is always helpful and it does not take much time to write it.
After gathering the information and making a plan, you are inspired to start writing. However, statistic says that if inspired people have a little rest before working, they stay inspired for much longer than those who think that they do not need to have a rest. So, sit down and close your eyes. Feel harmony inside of you and concentrate on the feeling of being in the right place in the surrounding world. Then, open your eyes and start writing a brilliant essay.
It is not a good idea to start your essay with direct information about your mother. First of all, a reading person will immediately lose interest to this essay. Second of all, you can write much more sentences before introducing your mom. That way, start with writing some general information if the assignment allows. Write about your family, how you like it, how many people there are in your family and what makes you really close. Then you can say that you want to introduce your mother.
Sounds boring? It depends on how you do it. Compare the two pieces of writing below to see the difference:
“My family has 4 members: my parents, my older sister and me. I love them very much, as my family members are my closest people. We spend a lot of time together and on Sundays go for a walk around the lake.”
“There are so many families in the world, that one can hardly imagine that they can all be different. My home with a little family of four seems to be a shelter where our love and loyalty become shields against anything bad the world has to offer. I cannot imagine myself without any of them: my always seriously-looking dad whose eyes, if you take a closer look, have sparkles of laughter; my sister, a fair-haired beauty who helped me discover most of the best things in life; and, of course, my usually smiling mom with the softest hands in the world.”
This is the most important part in your essay. Exactly here you are going to write everything what you prepared. Here are some tips for you which will help to write your describing essay.
Additionally, you can make the description give even more picture of her if you mention some tiny little habits she has. For example, that she never carries her umbrella, or that she only drinks hot chocolate with marshmallows. Does she wrinkle her nose at the thought of something unpleasant? Does she shake her foot while she is nervous? All of these details will become a spice to your paper.
This part does not have to be long. Say how much you love your mother and if you want to be like her. Sentences here may be short but informative.
Now, when you know how to write a descriptive essay about your mother, do not waste time and go writing. Good luck!
