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]

The Time Traveler - The Time Traveler If you think about it, it's kind of funny for an atheist to have the power of God. It's also funny that I'm one sentence into this narrative, and I'm already way ahead of myself.

O'Manjo's Last Waltz - O'Manjo's Last Waltz It was another long week, and I was looking forward to the usual summer rituals of mowing lawns and hammering a few nails into any place they seemed to fit. I usually closed the auto parts store at 5:30 and stayed doing paperwork for another hour or so, but not on Fridays. Fridays were the finish line of a usually marathon week of complaining customers and dissatisfied employees. At 5:31, the place would be empty, dark, and eager for an echo. The old man knew this ritual, and when he came on Fridays, he usually blew in the door around 5:15....   [tags: Creative Writing Narrative Essays] 2134 words

My Mistake - Is life worth living, if you don’t see anything in front of you…?.” “Oh night in which the stars feign light, all night that alone is the size of Universe, make me, body and soul, part of your body, so that-being near darkness- I’ll lose myself and become night as well without any dreams as stars within me, nor a hoped for sun shining with the future” (F.Pessoa, “Book of Disquiet”, passage 280 ). How do I begin to tell you the story of myself. To tell you how hard it is to fight with the inner you....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 841 words

The Chase - Leaving the jewelry store at a rather accelerated pace, a common, plain- clothed man with a parcel tucked under his arm jumped into his white, slightly dirtied Ford Bronco. He then hurriedly concealed the package under the front passenger seat making certain to prevent it from being seen from people passing by. He then tore out of the parking lot attempting to avoid drawing attention to himself or his accompanying bundle. He knew it would only be a matter of minutes before the police would be on his trail and he couldn't have them catching him so he would have to make certain he covered all his tracks and make it as difficult as he could for his pursuants as he could....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 497 words

The Game - The Game They tried to hide the huge needle, of course. He laid with his face planted hard into the sheets. His father and a nurse held him down by his shoulders and legs.

The Drug - The Daystrom Institute was a government-funded body with the official remit of developing drugs and vaccines, and, in general, to further medical research. The unofficial remit, was the secret development of gasses, drugs and toxins that could be used in armed conflicts throughout the world. Of course this contravened almost every treaty that had been signed since the end of World War II, and therefore the secrecy surrounding this plant was immense. Martin Timmins had recently been appointed as CEO of this organisation and reported directly to the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the White House....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 7978 words

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.

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

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. My eyes are already adjusted to the darkness of the room, the shades pulled mostly closed so that only a sliver of the morning sun makes it in, cutting a line down the middle of the room....   [tags: Creative Writing, Original Writing] 762 words

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.

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]

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
