Making Your Essay on Nature Stand out, and Mesmerize
Many students make a crucial mistake when receiving an essay on nature to write. They think it’s going to be a walk in the park, a piece of delicious writing cake one can easily have a bite of.
However, an essay about nature that brings you an A is a piece much more in-depth and complex than shortsighted classmen usually imagine. First and foremost, the essay has to be short, yet very insightful and meaningful.
It must fascinate just like a herd of clouds being spurred by mid-autumn wind. It must charm like an early flower hatching out of a snow cover. And it definitely has to evoke emotions, so that the reader ends the piece with an impression so evergreen she starts rereading your work once again.
Being sloppy and snappy while doing an essay on nature is the first and most grievous mistake one can make. Yes, you don’t have to research anything, but you do need to come up with a truly irresistible paper that is accompanied by your teacher’s gee-whizzes after every passage of reading.
The winning structure of an essay about nature
This type of essay usually comes as a narrative or descriptive piece and is based on your personal feelings, emotions and experience. But, natural essay isn’t just a description of Niagara Falls, for example. It’s both a description and reflection of what imprint Niagara Falls left on your life.
First off, start your essay with depicting an image of a certain place so tempting and colorful, and engaging that the reader gets charmed by every sentence of it. Your introduction must be so moving your teacher forgets about everything she planned to do that day.
Then, devote approximately two paragraphs in your work to a personal story, preferably from your life experience, that is somehow related to the place you’ve just outlined in the opening paragraph. It can be romantic, like your first kiss under that very same old oak in the middle of a green sea of grass, or it can be dramatic, like en elk popping out from a dark forest right in front of your dad’s car. There’s definitely has to be an unexpected twist in that story, a hook that makes reader shiver, wow, tremble or exited.
In the meantime, the story doesn’t end here. It goes on into a couple of odd passages where your story shines with new palettes, like how you met the girl you first kissed after ten years of not hearing about each other, or like the whole bander of little elks appearing on the road right behind their mother.
How did you feel at that moment? What happened next? How your life changed? Or, maybe, some questions should be left unanswered? Your concluding paragraph is about to either lift the veil and drop all cards on a table or keep the curtain down, leaving your reader a goodly aftertaste she will have a sense of the whole day.
Ask a question
I’m not that kind of a person, who can have a lack of inspiration. When life seems dark and overshadowed, all I need to do to meet my Muse is…to go for a walk in a local park. Regardless of the season, I am always excited about admiring the Mother Nature and absorbing its beauty. There are so many aspects in this world of fauna and flora that describing its splendor by means of simple words could take hours, days, weeks, months and…even years! Nonetheless, it still won’t be enough! What do I like nature for? Its uniqueness. Green leaves, tiny snow flocks shining in the sun, rainy days when the fall begins, the first flowers of the spring – everything is beautiful and so unlike anything else you have ever seen and will ever see in this life!
Summer… Who doesn’t like it? Even those people, who can’t stand heat, will definitely agree that life is great when the sun is shining, the birds are singing and the world seems to be absolutely carefree! There’s nothing more compelling than a starry summer night, a fresh air, a fire and a guitar. The best stories have been shared under the summer night sky.
Autumn…While some people consider it the time when the rainy sky actually falls down on the ground, I find no better time to relax and get inspired. The sky is crying, the wind seems to be mad at everyone waking in the gray streets, but my heart full of inexpressible nostalgia. Wandering over the cold city, admiring the falling leaves and looking for my reflection in the puddle – no other time of the year can provide you with such a privilege to enjoy your loneliness and feel how the weather shares your passions.
Winter… The pleasant girl’s voice from the radio tried to convince me that “spring brings the rain, with winter comes pain…”, but so in vain. Winter is one of the synonyms for “magic”. At least it is so for me. Winter takes you away to the fantasy universe with the fluffy snowflakes, snow angels, shiny Christmas tree with presents and honest expectations than the New Year will bring something special. It feels like the trees are sleeping tight under a warm blanket, waiting for the spring to wake them up once again…
Spring…The first warmth of the spring sun provides you with a unique opportunity to admire the beauty of nature in its most compelling view! Beautiful plants and trees refresh the spring air with wonderful scents. Some people say that together with fantastic views and aromas that simply make you fall in love with the whole world, spring also brings hope. Hope for a new life, new discoveries and a better future. And I totally agree with such viewpoints.
To cut the long story short, I am absolutely open to state that every time of the year provides us all with a bunch of desired inspiration for life. Nature’s beauty, just as it is, makes us feel the harmony of the world and lets us dream on.
