Portrait of a Cartographer - Portrait of a Cartographer Someone must decide how to color maps. Where to put the pale yellow, coral pink, the olive green, burnt orange, magenta. Where to put the darkest shades of blue. The lightest. There is something of symmetry, of composition. There is topography to consider. Demographics. The vast expanse of open land, open water, the sensuous curves of coastline, of mountain ranges, of rivers with their writhing bodies and forked tongues. The color of the ocean is according to its depth....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1685 words

Life As A Hummingbird - Life As A Hummingbird I eased behind the huge mass of nesting material and took a firm hold of several strands, I then pulled back, quickly, to pull them free.

After that near miss I climbed back to the altitude I had been at and started searching for my tormentor. I realized that I had grabbed hold of a human's hair and that he had not been happy about it....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 667 words

Do You Have the Power? - Do You Have the Power. It all started in the interesting city of New York. The smog ridden streets were filled with people.

From the mountains, a stone paved path winds down to the foot of the wall....   [tags: Creative Writing Short Stories] 2426 words

There's No "I" in We - It was yet another cold, grim Saturday morning and all I wanted was to stay in my warm, comfy bed. But Saturday mornings meant an eight o'clock start at the pool, an hour of walk-throughs and then two hours of tiring warm-ups and boring routines. As I lay in bed I thought to myself, this is not how a Saturday morning should be spent. I should be waking up slowly to a warm cup of tea and then be able to fall out of bed at my leisure and laze around the house. I want to be able to go out and have fun with my friends all Friday night without having to worry about coming home or being tired the next morning....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 527 words

A Cold Night in Swansea - It was a cold wet evening in Swansea. There was a dull light coming from the moon, which was only added to by the dim glow of streetlights, which were placed either side of the tall detached houses. Cars were parked on the side of the road with uniform spaces in-between. It was quiet, strangely quiet, like an empty church. There was no traffic going along the road and there wasn't a sound to be heard except the footsteps of a young lady.

Then, a crow appeared in the middle of my room. The crow stared at me with such intensity that I fell backwards into the safety of my pillow. I stared at the crow in shock as it disappeared into my closet and that's when I heard it, a long piercing whine that was like a nail to a chalkboard....   [tags: Short Story, Creative Writing] 414 words

Air Disaster- Creative Writing - Air Disaster- Creative Writing The sight that greeted my eyes was haunting. There were dead bodies as far as the eye could see, but somehow nobody had a scratch on them. The plane was in pieces, scattered all around. As the waves rolled up the beach, more and more bodies were revealed. The sun was burning high in the sky and everyone was beginning to tire out. The cliffs towered down on us; the sand burnt our feet as we trod carefully between the corpses. It was a shock; we hadn’t expected to find anything there, but it appeared that almost everyone who had been on the plane was lying here, on the beach, with us....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 956 words
