Julie’s dreams never worked out. She had dreams of going to college, but that fell through. No money. Was it her fault that the economy took a nose dive and no one wanted to give her a scholarship? Julie was going to graduate in the top half of her class. But, then she’d missed one final exam. Did she ask to get the flu or to forget the date of the makeup exam? Work for living, meet the right people, and take advantage of your opportunities. How she hated the advice she got from her parents. Well, this was where Julie drew the line. This was where she would set herself apart from the crowd. No more Loser for Julie. She was going to be the best Executive Assistant in the world. And, she was going to start today.
“Good morning,” Julie sang as she stepping into Mr. Goepfrisch’s office, holding a steaming mug of coffee between her hands. She took baby steps, combined with a slow knee-locking-gait she’d discovered kept the liquid from sloshing over the lip and running down over the Company logo. Julie had perfected this delivery over the last eighteen months, the sum total of her employment with Goepfrisch Enterprises; Executive Personal Assistant, her official title. If only he’d let her.

“Everything’s right where I need it.” Click, click, swish. “Where are those Phelps…? Oh, another check. Better get this over to accounting, Jule.” Mr. Goepfrisch held the envelope out and Julie leaned over the desk to take the envelope. Mr. Goepfrisch didn’t take his eyes from the stack in front of him. Jule, she hated that name.
“I forgot about these.” Mr. Goepfrisch stopped rifling and let the pile of papers fall to his lap. He picked up a silver letter opener and slit the top of an envelope. He withdrew strips of white cardboard and fanned them out in his beefy hands. “Looks like baseball tickets will go to waste.” He shook his head slowly, “I need to get ready for the meeting tomorrow, can’t stop now. Sure wish I’d remembered about them though, it’ll be a good game.” He tucked the tickets in his breast pocket and resumed his search.

Someone in the Backseat- Creative Writing Essay - Driving through torrential rain was very torturous. The rain thumped on the bonnet and the wind whistled along the curves of the car. The trees were waving frantically in the wind as if to attract the attention of passing cars. Like the night, the winding country road grew longer and longer, darker and darker with every passing hour. The bright headlights pushed back the darkness, which immediately returned to haunt the rear of the car. The darkness seeps into the car and hangs heavily over the back seat....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 683 words

Welcome Home Sylvia- Creative Writing Essay - Sylvia couldn’t sleep; no matter how much she tried she just couldn’t do it. She was just lying on the hard hospital bed with the uncomfortable, smelly, brown covers right up to her bright red lips with her eyes tightly shut. She pulled the covers down and peered, quite predominantly at the clock on her old dusty bedside table with only a glass of stale water and her own analogue watch she was wearing at the time it had happened. She strained to read the display. She could just make it out as five minutes past two in the morning....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 1086 words

There were dead bodies as far as the eye could see, but somehow nobody had a scratch on them. The plane was in pieces, scattered all around.
