Old Teacher - I was in school, in class and my eyes were drooping. I didn't know what to do. All night I was looking up for some kind of clue of who the guy was talking about or who he could be. I looked for anything similar to those letters, syllables and got nothing. I placed my head down on the desk hoping the teacher wouldn't bother me because I was the daughter of Hercule Satan. I was half listening to what she was saying. "And I'm sure you guys know that I'm retiring soon,…like tomorrow…" Yea, whatever she knows that she got fired because of the budget cuts....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1334 words

Mr. Belchior - Isaura, awakening from her unpleasant and bitter thoughts, took her little sewing basket and started to leave the parlor, resolved to disappear into the most hidden nook of the house, or find a secluded niche in the orchard. She hoped to avoid the repetition of the embarrassing and indecent scenes that had experienced. She barely took the first step before being detained by a wandering grotesque figure, that entering the parlor came to place himself in front of her. It was a misshapen figure resembling human form; a small man oddly shaped, with a huge head, diminutive chest, short legs bent outward, hairy as a bear, and ugly as a monkey....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 2099 words

Bear Encounter - Nate trudged up an incline of wild undergrowth. The snags and snarls of the rolling terrain appealed less to him than when he'd viewed it from the comfort of the back porch. Below the incline, a stream acted as his compass. He weaved in and out of blackberries and blueberries bushes, and trees of plums, figs, and peaches. All identifiable by the fruit they bore. Sometimes he wandered deep enough into the woods to lose sight of the brook, but the gurgling sound of water rushing across the rock-covered bottom helped him keep his bearing....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1366 words

The Ghost - Night in the country came like a cloak so that everything outside disappeared. No street lights and a new moon, whose light couldn't penetrate the many trees, may have had something to do with that. From any window, the only thing Nate saw when he looked outside was a thick blanket of black and the occasional flare of a firefly. At nine p.m. he excused himself from his grandparents' company as they watched Secrets of the Dead in their sitting room.

The Dragon - Seth awoke with a start. It was dawn and the dew on the glass panes had frozen in the night and left little crystals that looked similar to veins of a wing. This gave the window a beautiful life like appearance. He breathed heavily as is he came to reality from what he assured himself was a dream. He got up shakily and walked over to his window, and peered out. As he looked through the frosty window of the log and timber farm hut, he found himself wiping his breath from the window which traveled from his mouth as a cloud of vapor and came to rest on the window as a circle of fog....   [tags: Creative Writing Short Story] 1936 words

His oppressed muscles worked on deck, his agonized mind worked at sea, his soul never moved enough for him to feel a purpose in life. A purpose in life. Why, he had never thought of such thing. The very idea seemed alien, foreign; for how could he, an overworked sailor, a phlegmatic man, an ostracized human being, have such a thing.

Gals vs. Women - Gals vs. Women This article is about gals. It's not an article about women. There are way too many books about women, and most of them are way too serious. Women itself is a serious word, not to mention womanhood and womanly. While being female is a serious activity, there is a lighter side which is rarely examined or written about. But women tend to attach too much significance to womanhood. This results in certain characteristically feminine, by which I mean over exaggerated self-important, behavioral patterns that can produce unfortunate results....   [tags: Creative Writing Journalism Essays]

Prisoner of War - You wake, lying in mud, chained to a wall like a dog on a lead. You look around but nothing's in focus, just blurred figures lying down or sitting, some crying. You're cold, a winter breeze flows through the room through bars in the wall. Smells; you recognise them, blood, urine and vomit, stagnant, lingering.

Too Much Happiness - I sat there, in my chair, and stared in wonder at my creation. A smile suddenly had appeared on my face, as I realised the magnitude of my creation. I could achieve greatness, it was all in the palm of my hands, and I was going to hold it tight.
