“That’s so…. Exciting Kait, good for you,” Jennifer says in an unimpressed and uninterested tone. We’d been best friends since before high school, but now that we’ve gone our separate ways in the wake of college, I’ve seen how unsupportive she really is. I had just finished telling her about the tickets I’d bought to Melanie Nguyen’s show, which is much later tonight. Fancy recitals had never been Jennifer’s “thing”—as she often so eloquently put it—and so I nearly always had to go alone, no matter who was playing or singing. I put my hand over the microphone in my cell and let out a quiet little sigh of disappointment,
“Yea, I know that Melanie Nguyen isn’t your favorite artist. Do you still think you can make it?” I asked, raising my spirits a tiny bit in hope she’ll come and prove she’s still my friend.
“I…uh, no I don’t think I can. Alex has got this thing he’s going to, his parents are going to be there and he invited me. I really don’t want to let them down. I’ll talk to you later Kait, have fun at the show. You should ask Xavier if he can go. Bye.” Jennifer says all in one breath, and before I could get a word out a faint click signaled the end of our conversation. I sighed again, this time louder as I tuck my phone in my pocket, the raised spirit of friendship falling down into a pit in my stomach where it belongs. As I think, I scuttle around my apartment, attempting to tidy up the already-spotless rooms. When I’m sure there’s nothing else to clean, I collapse onto the end of my bed and raise my wrist up to my face. Eight hours and thirty-six minutes ‘till show time, according to my watch.

...ife. I stand and bow, and I walk off the stage, probably grinning like a lunatic. Backstage some people—Melanie’s people I assume—try to stop me but I rush straight through them to find Xavier again. When I do he wraps his arms around me and spins me around, “You did outstanding, Kait. I’m pretty sure you just blew Melanie out of the water! Everyone loves you!” I smile and thank him as we duck through the crowd. He drives me home and I can do nothing but go on and on about the rush I’m feeling! Xavier tries his best to calm me down, but there’s no possible way! I sang for thousands of people and they loved me! When we reach my apartment, Xavier walks me up and gives me a hug goodbye. After I have finally calmed down, I lean against my kitchen table with that crazy smile on my face and think to myself, I’ve just had my very own prince and the pauper experience.

Creative Writing: American Soldier in Iraq Essay - "RUN!!" I heard a fellow soldier screaming as I looked around. "RUN!" I started to take off but I was too late. I am an American soldier and I just got my leg blown off by a grenade. As I lay here crying, yelling out in pain, I think about why I am even here. The president thought that Saddam Hussein MIGHT have had weapons of mass destruction (WMD), so he sent me here to die. After we searched and found that Hussein did not have any WMDs, what did President Bush decide to do. Send more troops (SIRS)....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 1473 words

Essay on Creative Writing: The Wedding - ... He liked that about her, he felt that given the right chance he could be everything to her. ‘These feelings I have never felt before’ he thought to himself. “May I have this dance?” he asked as he motioned over to the crowd of people dancing, his Welsh lilt in every nuance of the words he has spoken. “Just one dance, okay Big Guy” she replied with a soft tone but a sharp look in her eyes. Nodding he took her hand and led them out to the dance floor. He could feel her hands travel down his large frame, and then come back up to tangle them in his long hair....   [tags: charlie, steve, suit] 1712 words

The Jaig Eyes Essay - The bar was as loud and boisterous as any in Keldabe. Kilmanoda Mano could hear the sounds of revelry and the smell of Mandalorian liquor from a block away. Upon arriving at the bar, he began surveying the booths for his brother, Mirshko Mano, who had told him to meet him there. Passing a table of Mandos who were celebrating a successful bounty, as evidenced by some unfortunate Rodian’s hands that were now on a string about the neck of the hunter, Kil found Mir in the corner booth pouring over a rather large map and with an odd assortment of gear on the table....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays] 1946 words

Essay about The Dark Knight - There were rats in the gloomy room where the gruff man left me alone to suffer in the darkness. They scurried up onto the table, first in one by ones and then in groups, before they began to nibble on my fingers and toes. I was actually grateful to these little, furry angels for the pain kept the insanity back for a while longer. My mate taught me a way to fight off my illness, but his words were so distant it was hard to tell if he said anything to me at all. I was forgetting him and in a way, I hoped he had already forgotten about me....   [tags: Creative Writing Essay] 1009 words

Air Disaster- Creative Writing Essay - Air Disaster- Creative Writing The sight that greeted my eyes was haunting. 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. As the waves rolled up the beach, more and more bodies were revealed. The sun was burning high in the sky and everyone was beginning to tire out. The cliffs towered down on us; the sand burnt our feet as we trod carefully between the corpses. It was a shock; we hadn’t expected to find anything there, but it appeared that almost everyone who had been on the plane was lying here, on the beach, with us....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 956 words

What if? Essay - “Are you OK. Why are you crying?” my friend whispered in concern. I just shook my head and gasped for breath, eyes following every movement of the bay stallion as he performed a near flawless half-pass. I couldn’t breathe – couldn’t talk. True, I was and still am strictly an amateur to the sport of Dressage, but I knew enough to know I was witnessing something truly exceptional, a performance to be remembered for a lifetime. At the end of the performance I turned to my friend – herself an FEI competitor and smiled....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 938 words

Essay on The Car Park- Creative Writing - I arrive at the car park, late as I usually am. My friends are there already, organised, prepared, ready. I, on the other hand, am not. The thought of performing anything in front of a crowd always seemed to be something that, how can I say it, levelled my conscience to that of a small school child on his first day at school. The 30 minute car trip to the venue however, was my chance to ensconce my childish fears, as I listen to music. To me, music is the gateway from one dimension to another....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples] 724 words

Creative Writing: Eveline Essay - She watched, as Frank and the many passengers aboard the boat sailed away into the darkening night. The reflection of the boat in the water highlighted by the moonlight began to fade just like Eveline’s dreams of a new life. Eveline could not believe that the opportunity to leave Ireland and her monotonous mundane life had been thrown away, for what was a split second decision, which she now deeply regretted.
