Welcome to Paradise - The deep, blue water splashes calmly today while the sun shines warmly down on this sandy shore in Honolulu. It’s an amazing vista based on the amount of strangers that travel here to escape from their own realities. It’s a place where they can dream about living on one of the many, distant islands. These tropical waters are home to many exotic creatures; most of them cannot be found anywhere else on the planet. The plants here are so wild-natured compared to the ones back toward the states; they release an aroma that spreads airborne for miles....   [tags: Creative Writing] 3319 words

That Day Jessie Died - Death, violence, and love were the three main components of my life. The love of money, cars, clothes, sex, and girls was what I lived for. But the love of attention cost me everything. The love to be in the “spotlight” and the love to have everything I wanted, everything that I thought I needed. But that is what cost me everything. The attention, the sex, the money, the cars, all of these things brought upon the violence and the deaths. These “loves” cost me the one person that I ever truly loved the most and the best out of everything....   [tags: Original Writing, Creative Writing] 1496 words

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: Book vs Movie - A movie that came out in 2002 was Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This movie was based off the best-selling novel, which was written in 1997 by J.K. Rowling, called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. If you were to read this book and watch the movie you would find many differences, but the main difference between the two is that the book gives more information to the reader than the movie gives to the viewer. If someone was to watch the movie instead of reading the book, that person would not be able to have an accurate perception of the book because so many things in the book are changed in the movie or parts are left out of the movie completely....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1187 words

Our Lady of Justice High School - It was a lovely September morning of 2007 and I was fresh out of Teacher’s College. Naturally, everything was “beautiful” and “wonderful” as I walked into the large, stone building at 7:15 in the morning. I enjoy looking at my life in retrospect; I know that my sole purpose for getting to school that early was to be able to sit back and start my day on a peaceful note. The hidden purpose was to avoid students and other teachers for as long as possible. Why. Earlier in the summer I had accepted a job at Our Lady of Justice high school in one of the small corners of the large city of London, Ontario....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 1788 words

The Dark Knight - I was dressed as a dark knight or rather, what the Knights of the Blooming Orchid thought a dark knight female would dress.

My boots were made of soft, sturdy leather dyed black to match the night. The boots went up to my thighs leaving about a foot of white skin between it and the armor....   [tags: creative writing, imaginative writing] 1489 words

An Unforgettable Adventure - “Mister Klemen … Mister Klemen,” repeats a voice which is quite familiar to my ears. All of my senses except one are numb; however I try to open my eyes to see what is happening to me. The last thing I remember is a long iron bar striking my head from the front. Since then I am able to hear this voice which has a slight Cuban accent. Shortly, I am able to come to my senses and open my eyes. A bright beam of light is blinding and disabling me to see my surroundings. It only takes me a few seconds to realize that I am tied down onto a chair with metal shackles around my wrist and ankles....   [tags: creative writing, imaginative writing] 1983 words

Salvation Lies Within You - She never quite knew what was expected of her, nor did she care. After high school, she did not even attempt college, it seemed too pretentious and cliché, paying to “learn” more about the world instead of actually living it. She longed for other ways to expand her mind. As the windowpane rattled under the soft torrents of rain through the streets of the Manhattan village, Veazey sat, knees bent to her chest, wondering what was to become of her. “Waitressing, is such bullshit” she thought. It could hardly pay her rent, not to mention provide a meager meal once a week....   [tags: Creative Writing] 4294 words

No Tears - Gabe Smith lazily dragged a small, snaggletoothed comb through the bushy crop of hair several times before he felt satisfied with his reflection. His eyes jerked down to his watch for the time, his first day on the job would have been starting in nearly fifteen minutes. Upon further examination, a jagged, red scrape presented itself upon his sun kissed skin. He ran his fingers over the scab, wondering just where he could have picked it up. He hadn’t been in any accident lately, and he was fairly certain that it hadn’t come from his previous job, as a delivery boy....   [tags: Creative Writing] 1701 words

Waking Up Dead - He hated waking up dead. The shock was bad enough. The feel of it -- the sensation of a thousand bugs burrowing up through his flesh -- was worse. But worst of all was the loss of memory. There was a period, every time he died, where he knew neither who he was nor what had killed him. As such, each time was as bad as the first. He woke up gasping, clasping and clawing at his skin in a vain effort to dig out the worms and biters he could almost see writhing beneath the surface. The horrible impression passed momentarily....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1764 words

The Mystical Cave - It was a dark moonless night as I drove down highway 34. I was fatigued with the eight hour drive and the tiresome boredom of the never ending road. Then out of nowhere a deer jumped in front of my vehicle. I slammed on the breaks hoping to stop the inevitable. The front end of the car slammed into the side of the deer. With the sound of a loud “thunk” and metal twisting, smoke snaked out from under my hood. I cursed under my breath and stepped out of what was left of my car and examined the ordeal....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 635 words

Travels in Sidney - It was our tenth month away from home, we had already travelled around some breathtaking parts of the world Thailand, Bali, India, and Japan to name a few, seen some of the poorest parts of the world and some of the wealthiest all in the same country, every single moment drawing in everything you could from different smells, different tastes, different people, different cultures. Coming up to half way, it was our 11th stop, Australia, when Joanne and I had first discussed this we hadn’t been overly thrilled about the place, for some reason it hadn’t appealed to us, but on hearing so many great things, and that it was a place you had to go whilst travelling we didn’t want to miss out....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1631 words

Taking Grandma Home - The road stretches back and forward, whirring beneath tires worn bald by old age. James, dark haired and bright eyed, grips the wheel with one hand and looks lazily between the mirrors to the road to the sky, trying to stay awake. He floats beyond trucks and minivans, driving with the confidence of one never scarred. They pass fields, stretches of yellow and dust, not waving, just watching, guarded by the occasional brooding building. Everything is older here, in middle America, in Kentucky, in Tennessee, in Ohio, but not in the way of wise New England....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1758 words

No Carrots, Please - Randall Poston swirled his glass, watching shards of ice melt in a whirlpool of scotch. He snapped off the radio. The living room hushed to the humming level of car tires on wet pavement twelve stories below. Somewhere between "Hey, Jude" and "Piano Man", the little girl fell asleep, a tiny bundle under the covers of his king size bed. The Lucite clock from Fortunoff's glowed a red 11:37.

The Detroit River - The year was nineteen seventy nine on a calm sunny day. I was standing at the edge of the Detroit River just east of Third Street in an abandoned parking lot. Oddly I looked up in the sky and I saw the greatest cloud I have ever seen. It stretched from one end of the earth’s horizon to the other, not at the height or middle of the sky but offset slightly toward the northeast horizon. The weather was calm and perfect for an end of summer kind of day, a light breeze passed over the open field and brushed lightly across my face and caused the taller plants and grasses to sway gently back and forth in visual dancing patterns....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 888 words

The prince was determined to salvage whatever dignity he had left, and not take to massaging his buttocks in the presence of a lady.

Mrs. Baltimore smiles as she pulls into the open garage, and eases the SUV in as she turns off the vehicle.

The Fishbowl Universe - Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. Hordes of transparent cameras swirled violently around him as he sat on his gilded throne, as a billion Angels waited impatiently by their holographics with insuppressible excitement for their leader to speak. He had a few moments before his speech; he’d not spoken formally to his brotherhood since his initial speech at the Christos Structure of The One. Hovering deep within the dimensional membranes above the dark side of the moon, his Illuminated elite decorously jockeyed with the thousands of attending reporters and excited dignitaries crowding his massive ornate throne room....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay]

The Medical Certificate - The pounding in my head is so familiar; I barely notice the effect of last night’s scotch. What isn’t familiar is the aroma of coffee. I open one eye, in case there is a body lying next to me. The bed is empty, but the bedside table shows proof of another existence; a half smoked cigarette is slowly disappearing in an ashtray. Oh Jesus, what did I get up to last night. I hate awkward morning after conversations. I drape on my clothes from yesterday, and hurry to make a quick exit.

The Secret Mission - I felt Liz's small shoulder pressing into mine. I leaned over as close as I could, and when I was sure Solomon wasn't looking I whispered the letters 'D.C.' to her. All she did was nod her head and a smile spread across my face. We were going back. Solomon hadn't seen us, which was a good thing considering he would have us help out the 7th graders for days as they practiced their roundhouse kicks.

A Bad Day - It was late summer. The weather was gradually changing to autumn, which was noticeably seen on the leaves that were starting to turn orange. The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot or too cold outside. In fact, it was actually soothing; the cold wind blowing, paired with the warm sun shining above. It was one of those days where you’re glad to be awake early in the morning, before the afternoon gets scorching hot.
