Descriptive essay help!?

QUESTION
Descriptive essay help!?
I need to write a 5 paragraph descriptive essay for school about a friend. Can you please write me a format/outline/guide on how to write this essay? Thanks!

ANSWER
If readers come away from a descriptive essay with the feeling that they have really met a person, gone to a particular place, or held a certain object, the writer has done a good job. If readers also feel an emotional connection and deep appreciation for the subject’s significance, the writer has done a great job. Once a topic is chosen, students should spend time thinking about the qualities they want to describe. Brainstorm about all the details associated with the topic. Even when not writing about a place, reflect on the surroundings. Use descriptive and figurative language, as well as concrete images to describe the subject. Similes and metaphors work well.
