The body is the largest part of your paper. Here you should describe your house in detail. You may start from a garden if you have one, and only then begin describing the actual house. Try to imagine that you have entered your house and describe everything you see in front of you. Go from one room to another, so that your narration flows smoothly. You may add some interesting stories that happened in your life when you encounter some objects in your house that remind you of these stories. Start describing each new room in a separate paragraph.
Favorite room in the house
• Which is your favorite room in the house?
• Why do you regard it as the favorite?
• What changes do you want to make in it?
The ability to describe something convincingly will serve a writer well in any kind of essay situation. The most important thing to remember is that your job as writer is to show, not tell. If you say that the tree is beautiful, your readers are put on the defensive: "Wait a minute," they think. "We'll be the judge of that! Show us a beautiful tree and we'll believe." Do not rely, then, on adjectives that attempt to characterize a thing's attributes. these are all useful adjectives in casual speech or when we're pointing to something that is lovely, etc., but in careful writing they don't do much for us; in fact, they sound hollow.
Let nouns and verbs do the work of description for you. With nouns, your readers will see; with verbs, they will feel. In the following paragraph, taken from George Orwell's famous anti-imperialist essay, "Shooting an Elephant," see how the act of shooting the elephant delivers immense emotional impact. What adjectives would you expect to find in a paragraph about an elephant? big? grey? loud? enormous? Do you find them here? Watch the verbs, instead. Notice, too, another truth about description: when time is fleeting, slow down the prose. See how long the few seconds of the shooting can take in this paragraph.
