Even when Dad left to help in the army, she had been very strong. "But-but Mum," he bit his lip, holding back his tears, "I don't want to go."

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.

She opened the curtains and as far as the eye could see everything had disappeared under a blanket of snow. Robyn was surprised by the heavy downfall of snow because of the intense humidity they had been experienced just yesterday, so this weather was certainly unseasonable. The snow looked crisp and pure. As she looked through the austere nakedness of the trees far into the distance the buildings and forest were clearly defined against the ultramarine sky....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 1097 words

The Shadow - Ashley sat up with a jolt. 'He's back; he's really back; Vic's back,' she thought. Or was it just a dream. Was it yet again another illusion she had created for herself to believe in. She sighed heavily. For the past few months, she had found it difficult to distinguish reality from fragments of her memory. It was three in the morning. The silence was deafening as she threw open her windows to let in the cool night air. Her eyes travelled over to the wooden swing at the corner of the garden....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1166 words

The Assassin - It is pitch black, bucketing with rain, but he does not shiver. He lies crouched in a small puddle beneath a large dead oak tree, near an old wooden bridge; waiting. A bright moon gives light through the bare branches of the tree, casting eerie shadows on him. He is sporting a trench coat and a sizeable pair of boots. A cigarette is wedged in a space in his teeth, not lit. Over his eyes is a pair of dark shades. Wearing these, no ordinary man could see, except this is no ordinary man....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 661 words

My Mouse - My Dad is not a bad sort of guy. There are plenty who are much worse. But he dose rave on a bit, like if you get muddy when you are playing football, or rip your pants when you are building a den. Stuff like that. Mostly we understand each other and I can handle him. What he doesn't know doesn't hurt him. If he knew that I kept George, my pet mouse, under the bed, he wouldn't like it; so I don't tell him. That way he is happy, I am happy and George is happy. There are only problems when he finds out what has been going on....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 2366 words

The Encounter - I drove into the Asda car park after what seemed like a lifetime, stuck behind loud and obnoxious United fans. What more could you expect from the red devils. Now I know how they got that nickname. Once past the front gates I was greeted by yet another hold up. Just in front of me was a purple Renault Clio driven by an elderly man accompanied by his wife. So after having to suffer with slow driving, non-English speaking United fans, I now had to put up with an old man way past his road expiry date further holding me up....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 519 words

True Love - I looked around me, nothing but laughter, nothing but happiness. My eyes scanned over the table, at the people that meant the most to me. My birthday had been the best yet, 'nothing better than being around your friends on your special days' I seem to recall my mother saying. I had received many presents, been hugged by many people, enjoyed the attention, yet there was something; something missing,. As I closed my eyes I tried to grasp what this feeling was. That day was not the only day I had been feeling this, but since everyday I could remember; however, this particular day it was more prevalent than ever before....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 725 words

The Dream - It is only our forth hour in space on our one day mission and already I am starting to feel a little home sick. I have done a lot of travelling before this mission, to fight wars and battles, but not to space. I have done all of the tests but none of them even nearly compare to actually being in space. My body is feeling so light and it's as if I don't have anything inside me.

Nervous Footsteps - The street lamps dimly lit the rain-soaked streets of the small town in which I live. Terraced houses line each side of the narrow streets and the sound of raindrops on tiled roofs constantly drum in my ears. The streets are totally empty, not even the odd car or person breaks the monotony of the black tarmac. A rusty iron fence surrounds the small park by the houses and the play area is deserted and broken. The sky is dark and overcast, with the occasional roll of thunder rumbling in the distance....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 667 words

Without Sin - The silence was deafening. The darkness was blinding. Time didn't exist here, there was only oblivion. Simple oblivion, enough to drive anyone crazy. Yet, I remained sane. I craved to know the meaning of sane, but I knew the meaning wouldn't make any sense to me. Nothing made sense here. I was alone, floating peacefully, completely free of sin. My innocence struck me as abnormal, but I had no idea then, that my innocence would soon be shattered like glass hit by a chisel.

No Clue - I got out of my car and I immediately felt the cool, brisk, autumn wind pounding at my face. As I battled my way towards the entrance, my cheeks and ears were slowly turning pink and beginning to feel a little numb.

Greyson - Loud and sharp, my scream echoes from my mouth but not in its customary coldness, emotion stirs within me. I am out of the memory. The memory is gone, fading and with it my recollection, now being only shadows and wisps in the back of my mind. The fuzziness of sleep clears from my head; I realize that I am in my room, located in the inn of No Names, my room, a room reserved for guests.

Armistice - It was raining. I was crouched in a large burrowed hole, surrounded by sandbags and half filled with sky water. I had not heard a single gun fire in what seemed like forever. I poked my head up, still clutching my gun with both white-knuckled hands. The dust and debris, everything along the empty street collectively turned to mud. Uniformed bodies lingered face down in the mire. The stucco buildings were sprinkled with bullet holes. Our snipers were on the cracked roofs to both sides, looming down on the center street like wicked angels with rifles....   [tags: Creative Writing] 2283 words

Experimentalism - Writing I find exciting often gets called experimental. In America this is another word for marginal. It's patronizing. Other countries distribute legitimacy in literary culture differently. For example, when in the U.K., Kathy Acker wrote for the Times Literary Supplement. Can you imagine Acker writing for the New York Times Book Review!. Just the experience of reviewing her work in the NYT Book Review caused several reviewers to spontaneously combust. On the other side of the Atlantic, debates on literary aesthetics are part of public — not just academic — life....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays]

All she knew was that running for so long of a time made her very hungry. Desperately, she looked around for something to eat, and her eyes settled on a tall apple tree. Jennifer picked a couple and ate them as she leaned against a maple tree while watching mother nature take its course.

Colors - Colors Emulsions are thin, gelatinous, light-sensitive coatings on film that react chemically to capture the color and shadings of a scene. Color film requires three layers of emulsions, typically cyan (a greenish blue), yellow, and magenta (a purplish red). As light passes through the layers, each emulsion records areas where its particular color appears in the scene. When developed, the emulsion releases dye that is the complementary color of the light recorded: blue light activates yellow dye, green light is magenta, and red light is cyan.(1) golden beer lemon (sickly) Sunflower caution banana (mourning) school-bus Yellow....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays]

Crepúsculo - Crepúsculo There is a word that I learned from Pablo Neruda: crepúsculo. It means twilight. I swim each night in the twilight of a hundred faces. These are the faces that I see through a silver mist. They are the faces that have found their way to that part of my brain where lost things are kept, neatly stacked, forever pressed behind frosted glass; forever just out of reach. . . . Joe’s face, from across my kitchen table, smiles his gentle smile at me. He sat with me in the kitchen for so long that night, watching as I sorted tiny beads into piles of reds and blues and glowing emerald greens....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1176 words
