Princess Danielle - Once upon a time… I know what you are thinking, oh no not that type of story again. They always go Once a upon a time there was a princess and a prince, then comes along the bad guy they try to keep the princess away from the prince. It works. The bad guy messes up a relationship but then it gets better and they live happily ever after. The End. Those are great stories but are predictable. Not this one, so let’s start again. Once upon a time, there was a beautiful maiden called Danielle. She has the reddest hair you could imagine, (it has the slightest curls); bright blue eyes, light skin, and 5’3....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1494 words

Sibling Rivalry - Little Talabrina stifled a giggle with her tiny hand. She poked a single gold eye around a corner. She played with Yasraena like this for hours. Her stuffy big sister wanted her to do some boring stuff in the family Chapel. No doubt, it was for some dumb boring chanting again, or something else just as boring. So she snuck out and let her sister chase her around the House. This was much more fun than staying in the Temple. Right now, she hid by her eldest brother’s room. She heard Yasraena scream her name and hurl curses to that nasty Lady Lolth....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 712 words

The Unknown - The unknown I failed to open my moist less eye lids; there was something that it did not want me to see. The bitter cold numbed my feeble body, sending pulse of pure agony. I lay in a lifeless bundle on the adamantine concrete floor. My fatigued muscles ached under the strain of my feeble body. I felt something tearing at my delicate skin, its raw frame chaining me to stained walls. I manage to ease my eyes open, and saw a miniscule light bulb dangling from the ceiling which was the only means of light in this diminutive room, a room that entrapped me in its cold embrace....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1549 words

The Drive - The hard packed dirt gave way to a shallow depression. Its steep bank led down a meager excuse for a creek. Jonas urged his mount forward. Both man and rider were thirsty. Both covered in many miles worth of dust. Behind him, a thickly accented voice, spoke. “It’s water, yes?” Jonas nodded. The discovery had come at the perfect time. The day had been hot and Jonas was concerned that they might be getting lost. This was all new territory, after all. They were following a new route from Mexico, through Texas, up into the Montana territories....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1025 words

Opus III - He stood up from the seat he had been sitting in for the past three hours. Luck had been a very kind lady to him that night but his time was due and he decided that he should leave the house with some of its money rather than all of his. John wasn’t the greatest of players, but he did know when to bet high and when to duck out of a bad hand, that was where the skill came in, not in which cards you held, or at least that’s what he had been told. “Well boys, I think I’m done for the night,” John said, looking at the dealer first then each other player at the table....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 2149 words

My Son - “A man,” the elf began as he walked across the room, “is the sum of his memories.” He paused, moving to pick up the pitcher of water and pour two glasses. “For those of us whose lifespans exceed the mortal average, it is both a blessing and a curse.” He turned, handing a glass of water to the slightly bewildered man with black hair, walking back to the chair and waving with his free hand for Jedah to sit. “We don’t have the same frame of reference as they do, don’t have the selfsame moralities. We can’t.” Jedah hadn’t anticipated this....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 903 words

Small Victories - Poseidon has always been a bit... iffy. Always wants to try new things. In fact, his newest intuitive grasp of genius told him to get a change of scenery. After chatting with his advisers, they had agreed (because if they didn't, they would be fish fry). So after some fancy hocus-pocus, the sea god changed the sea to more or less an underwater snowfield. Poseidon had always liked snow.

Mesa Grande - An explosion rocked the town, widows shattered and cars alarms wailed, A line of twenty Abram tanks rolled side by side on parallel roads, through the town of Mesa Grande, but, all heading the same direction, to the west. Boom, boom , boom-boom, as the Abrams fired their 120mm M256 smoothbore guns in a hellish symphony toward their targets, the Heat rounds strike time and again on target, plumes of fire, smoke, and sand leapt in the sky, forming craters across the desert to the west of town.

A Nightmare - My eyes hollow, I went about my normal routines, preparing me for sleep, dreading the respite, pupils flickering unseeing before me, afraid to blink, fearing the darkness and the images spawning from it. My dreams played across the natural blinds, taunting me with each flutter of my lids, sparks of isolation, suffering, terror, all twisting and twining to form each strike at my heart, flashes of pure hateful white contrasting yet complementing the abandoned black. As the memories returned, dreams collided with reality, the two fusing seamlessly together, my breath quickening, heart quivering in my chest, the fear beating its wings viciously, trying to escape the confines of my mind once aga...   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1035 words

Slashing Shards - The front window shattered and a black oblong object rolled toward us, sending off a wild shrieking noise - a stench filled the room as a thin grey fog. “Down!” I said. My reactions were those of someone who had been in combat but no matter how rusty, I knew we needed to get out of there. Nothing good was about to happen.

The memory and talents of this much older man proved to be of great value to their current investigation in that, unknown to them, the will-o-the-wisp they were chasing was more the age of James Cagney and was employing methods and devices of a bygone era to function and cover his tracks....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1052 words

Caveat's Report - Also, considering the time constraints we’re under, it would be more expeditious for us as a group to not get into each other’s way. We need to avoid involving too many outside sources, who may swear by their noble intentions, but in the end, succeed in slowing down our efforts for personal gain. We can also speed things up by avoiding a lot of speculation and reinventing the wheel. This ends up amounting to nothing more than the proverbial wild goose chasing I referred to earlier. For the sake of time, it is my hope that those of you who oppose my view, not condemn me for referring to the Holy Bible for answers.” Gremley’s face twitched as he focused his eyes on the nearest wall hangin...   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1151 words

Dahlia Devoir - When she could finally move again, the day began as regular as any other. She rose scarcely a moment before dawn, and bathed in water mixed with honey and lilac that she had surreptitiously prepared herself. Subsequently she prayed for an hour before her large wooden cross to God and the Lord Jesus; unlike nearly every believer in the whole of Christendom, the Manson kin supported pieces of both Protestantism and Catholicism.

The Spot - The buildings that made up the complex of the Scientia Institute were reflecting the yellow, noon sun straight into William's eyes. Blocking the blinding light with his hand, he stared straight towards the main entrance, as he had for the past twenty minutes. "For such a smart girl, you'd think she could understand the concept of ending a session on time for once." He strained his vision as the front doors opened, and once again he sighed in disappointment. "Maybe the library got a new book in, one she actually hasn't read yet."

My Ferrari - It was half past seven in the morning and I had a busy day ahead of me. I got into my Ferrari 360 spyder; put my bag on the passenger seat. I started the engine, put it into gear and made my way to the airport, with the roaring sound of the Ferrari behind me. I had to go pretty fast because I had to be at the airport before my flight left. As I approached the entrance to the airport, I made my way to the runway. There was a barrier across it so that it would be blocked of for other customers....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 838 words

The Earthquake - It was a beautiful day like any other with the clear blue sky and the nice cool breeze chilling my morning tea. Everything was peace and quiet until I felt my chair shaking. I saw the tea water moving and my little round tea table become restless. I went into the house and I saw the dust falling down from the ceiling and the picture frames swinging like a pendulum. Then I thought to myself, it was definitely an earthquake happening. Nervous became fear as I ran to warn my parents....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 363 words

The Guilt - A thick layer of frost covered the ground as the Turner children walked briskly down the 2km drive way to meet the bus. The middle of winter in Peak View was harsh and the air hurt the skin. Although not likely to snow, Peak View was close enough to the Snowy Mountains to make the mornings cold and gloomy. In summer the children would use the run about car to drive to the road but in winter the car was almost always frozen over. The school bus was quiet and Meggie took her same seat behind her sisters Josephine and Therese who were both eight....   [tags: Creative Writing Short Story] 1506 words

Bank Robbery - Bruno Brian ran slim fingers over his carefully styled hair. Shrugging the navy blazer more comfortably on his broad shoulders, he wondered if his businessman's disguise masked the figure of a broken-down football coach who hadn't worked in years. He took another sip of beer as he saw Shorty Lopez striding into the bar. "Where you been?" Bruno growled. "You're late." Shorty eased into the booth, his toes barely touching the floor. "Cool your jets, Bruno," he snapped. "I'm always at the starting gate when it counts, ain't I?" Bruno hated to admit Shorty was right....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 1331 words

PROWL - The past few months had been awash with the rumors. Those same five letters were showing up in the same script, the same color and the Word evoked fear in those who saw it. Everyone had their own ideas. Some said they had heard it was this. Others said "No!. It was definitely that for sure!" The speculation was electric and rampant. But why all the secrecy. Was this really that big. Probably not, after all they were just rumors, right. But what if!. Who are they. What did they want. When did they get here....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 1619 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

Jack - The rain was pouring down even more heavily now. A young woman ran into the neglected barn and closed the door, she hid behind a stack of hay. The barn door creaked open slowly, and standing there was a large man, in his hands he held a hatchet, it was not very sharp, but it did not have to be for the purpose for which it was intended. He walked in and looked around, he saw no sign of the woman. As the man was about to walk away, the woman peeked out from behind the hay and in doing so knocked over a bucket, sealing her fate....   [tags: Short Story, Creative Writing] 591 words

Winter - I pressed my face up against the glass window, my moist breath causing it to fog up. I watched the boy's dark silhouette shift positions slightly, as he leaned back against the deteriorating stonewall, and buried his head in his hands. Tendrils of dark bronze hair assisted in the covering of his face, making it even more impossible to see what he might look like. He didn't know I was here, quietly watching him. Hell, he didn't even know I existed. I squinted, straining my vision, hoping I could maybe see his face in order to have a visual picture of him....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1495 words

Shoplifting - Smash. The Skytrain screeched into an abrupt stop, causing me to hit my head on the bar beside me. "Owe, my head." I yelled with my hand over my forehead and kneeling down on the floor as if someone has just punched me in the stomach. "Are you okay?" giggled Tina wrapping her arms around my waist and helping my stand up. My eyes become watery. "Yeah I'm fine thanks." I mumble with a weak smile on my face as I brush myself off.

Brothers - The hours meandered past like slow unhurrying snails. At last Johnny’s head dropped onto his jacket. He was snuggling his jacket to gain some warmth as the chilly breeze filled the atmosphere. His breathing became slower, deeper. He slept. But the boy didn’t sleep: that would not have done; for he had to keep guard. They had no time to get caught now. The responsibility was his. He was the elder. This was how it always had been, as far back as he could remember. Always he had been a big brother to Johnny....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 780 words

Sveta - Day 9, they went back to the archives. This time with magnified glasses in hand. They took a book each, going carefully through each page. Once again, there were many Vasili, but no Veryutin or Veryutina. At lunch, Astrid pondered over ways to find her family. ‘If the archives don’t work, I’ll have to find other ways of finding my family,’ she confided in Sveta. ‘Yes,’ replied Sveta, but she did not come up with any other thought. At that moment, Astrid realized that Sveta was only useful as a translator, but she continued to voice her thoughts aloud....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 843 words

Goodbye - His teeth were by now clattering together, as he sat out in the cold weather, every time the wind would hit his face, his teeth would begin to clatter some more, and he’d pulled out his hands and begin to rub them together, it was a decent technique, but it really warmed up his hands only, but once in awhile, he’d place his hands on his cheeks, and he’d feel himself warm up only for a brief moment, but that brief moment always felt as if it was gone within seconds.

Worried - His hand was starting to feel clammy as he held onto the door knob, trying to steady his breathing. He was still feeling awkward standing in the same room as her. In fact, he was surprised that he had not already run off, but his feet were now glued to the spot and it was as if he couldn’t move. His mind wondered off from where he was at for a brief moment and he wondered what it was like back home and he wondered how his dog was doing and his sister. He almost wished that he was back home in Michigan, out on the lake where it was cold enough to ice-fish and his dog would be at his side running around on the ice and falling down every five seconds....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 630 words

Dragon - Prologue My feet pounded the ground. Hard. Over and over again. Every impact sent a jolt of pain up my legs. My breathing came in rapid, wheezing gasps. I wanted to barf. My stomach felt as if it had been cut open. My throat burned as if a thousand white-hot needles had been stabbed into it and left there. My right arm hung uselessly at my side. The moonless night sky was sprinkled with stars which disappeared as I entered the thick forest. Blood pouring from my shoulder painted a trail behind me, marking every step I took....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 785 words

Pranks - We listened as Mrs. DeCostia enumerated the names of those involved. “Kat, Tara, Kelly, Alexis, Rob, Joe, Matt, and John.” She announced with annoyance. How is it that all my friends got in trouble for the greatest prank in Fairfield’s 75 year history, but my name was left off that prestigious list. I watched my friend’s proud faces as they walked to the front of the room and I laughed as I heard Matt say “So you caught the people, who perfectly reconstructed your room on the roof of the school, but you will never know who the genius behind it was, and as long as that stays a secret, we’ve done our job.” Then Mrs....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1545 words

Brandon - Ah, what a beautiful day it is. The skies are painted a royal shade of blue, the suns warm, radiant rays showering down brilliantly on the ground below. Cotton-like streaks of white clouds drift across the sky at a slow, calm pace. Flocks of Staravia and Starly fly overhead, coos filling the air as they give their wings the occasional flap to stay airborne. The starling pokemon aren't the only things up in the air today, and that would soon be noticed. The sound of a powerful engine roaring could be heard from afar, along with multiple propellers as their blades beat in their fast merry-go-round motion....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 937 words

Wiz - The old wizard pulled his hood back and turned to close the mighty hardwood door behind him. The wood was smooth where he placed his hand for more than one hundred winters. When the door closed, its locking bolt slid into place with an audible click. D'Mari took the stairs two at a time as she bounded for her teacher and locked him in a great hug. "It is good to have you back," she said. "It is good to be back, my child" the wizard replied.

Beaten - I knew it was dead body before I even had to look at it. The smell, oh the smell. It was awful, a dingy and foggy scent that clusters your nostrils and breaks into your conscious. My mind was warped when it grabbed and clutched its claws into my senses the first time I was forced to sniff it. Reluctantly, I looked down. There it was. A bleeding mass of dead skin and no soul. Eyes there, but not really. They were squished in their sockets, a bubbled mass of disgusting matter that wouldn’t stop staring at me, the pupils drilling into my being....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 790 words

Apocalypse - She stayed away for as long as she could. Fighting towards the light, screaming and clawing in an attempt to get away from the body that was sucking her back in. The body that was supposed to be hers, but had ceased to be a sanctuary was calling her. It had become a joke, a cruel punch line, dangling release before her then snatching it away the moment before she reached it. She was desperate to escape the life that she had been imprisoned in and she fought every time even though she knew it was useless....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 1095 words

Unfaithful - Friday afternoon Mike Webster called me out of the blue and simply implored that I accompany him at Blue Lounge’s happy hour. I obliged, for I had no plans for that night, not for lack of alternatives, but for a recent lack of enthusiasm for the usual frivolity of LA’s nightlife. Mike sounded so determined over the phone, which was wholly unlike the Mike I knew from University, that I simply had to take his invitation seriously. So, while Jay and Izzy were getting complimentary lap dances at the Iguana, I spent my Saturday evening with Mopey Mike....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1290 words

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]

Freedonia - Firefly: That's a good idea. You can wash your neck, too. I would say he was awfully taxing rather than tiresome, but have you ever thought of that place many dream for. A place a little bit closer to Heaven, a place where statism reigns not and liberty is proclaimed across the land. Let me take you now to my anarcho-capitalist Freedonia. It is a pleasant land, bejewelled with placid blue lakes, bedecked with white-capped mountains and babbling with verdant brooks.
