Descriptive Essay

Part One:
“It is a chilly, creepy feeling of alienation, of being without some of the most ordinary, trivial (and therefore basic) cues of one’s culture of origin” (Conrad phillip kottak, 2016)

The author has used descriptive words such as creepy and trivial to create a clear world for the reader: this has taught me to be more realistic and use words that create an impression on my readers’ minds. In my essay, I will modify some of the describing words that I have used. This helps me keep my readers engaged in what I am talking about as well as to better their understanding of the essay. Additionally, ((Conrad phillip kottak, 2016) has used the word “creepy”, this makes it sound more vivid by using its synonym spine-chilling or frightening.
“At one meal a disintegrating fish head, eyes still attached, but barely, stared up at me as the rest of its body floated in a bowl of bright orange palm oil….” (Russell karine, 2016, )

The use of bright orange to describe the bowl or rather the environment in which the fish is evoking a sense of sight to the reader, make it fascinating to read. It brings out the essence of descriptive writing which is not telling but showing. By this understanding, I will need to expound on using colors that are more specific and also include motion in my narrative essay. The writer tries to paint an image of how the fish looked; I feel that it is less descriptive. I would add descriptive words such as “Salmon fish or grilled fish’.
Part two: Post one paragraph from your narrative essay by expanding fully on an aspect of the planning template (Week 1 Assignment).

I was at the reception, leaning on the white L-shaped desk clearing out one of my assigned patients when I heard loud sirens from outside. In my mind, I just thought that it was yet another regular patient, not until when it was announced that we were receiving the first Covid 19 patient. People were instructed to clear out of the facility. I watched as hospital attendants dressed in milk-white PPEs and black A95 masks brought the patient in, who looked like he was in his middle twenties. The family members followed right behind with watery eyes, one of them that seemed like the patient’s mother was screaming uncontrollably. The doctors quickly rushed him to the isolation room.
Descriptive sensory words used: Milk-white, L-shaped, black masks, banging of doors, rough floor, uncontrollable screams, smooth.
Four additional descriptive words that I would use the following: Bright-white, ear-splitting, hinged, antiseptic.
