    In E.B. White’s “One More at the Lake” and Judy Brady’s “I want a wife”, both authors write on personal encounters they experienced. The author chooses two different methods of writing styles. E.B. White utilizes a nostalgic reflective descriptive piece, whereas Brady uses a more sarcastic narrative. Arguably both writers do a great job in their story telling skills.

  • Descriptive Essay On The Art Of Writing

    The Art of Writing Writing was not an art for me. I can remember like it was yesterday, those dreaded essays for English Class when I was a first year student in College.
