I know there is a way to change the description text in the project fields by adding the projrctname_wdtitle.wdl, but does anyone know if you can do the same thing for the drawing description.

The projectname.wdt or default.wdt mapes the titleblock attributes to lines in the dialog box. Map all attributes you want to edit into this file.
For example:
TITLE = LINE1
DESC1 = LINE2
DESC2 = LINE3
DESC3 = LINE4
DWGNUMBER= LINE5
DATE = LINE6

We have 67 attributes on our title block that is mapped this way and it allows us to edit them using the "Project Descriptions" dialog box.
