Factual Description is a collection of related sentences dealing with a single topic. Such a writing task is essentially sequential and directional – proceeding from one point to the other in a fixed direction. Although the focus is on factual accuracy, stylistic creativity and innovation, make the description more interesting for the reader. Otherwise, a factual description may become mundane and boring.

While writing a factual description students must show:
(a) an eye for detail
(b) power of observation

The factors that are essential for effective paragraph writing are:

  • unity
  • cohesion
  • the logical development of thought

The entire piece should concern itself with a single controlling idea. Rambling or deviating from the task at hand should definitely be avoided. Connectives and linkers are essential to make the passage interesting and understandable. The thought should be built up by providing adequate details. The description must be sequential with important details listed first and the not-so-important details following it.

Important: Make a careful use of tenses while giving a factual description.
