John Smith has a couple of years left until he retires from his job in London where he has worked for over 25 years. John has loved this job as it has involved him saving lives.

John is 5ft 8 inches, has lots of dark black hair with a few greying pieces at the side of his head. He wears small dark round glasses and has a moustache that is almost completely grey. John is a slim man as he knows the importance of keeping himself healthy as every day he sees so many people who have not. John is a very kind man who is always so calm and patient with everyone.

To work John wears a red tie, with a sharp white shirt, some shiny loafers and a classy black pin stripe suit. He has a very precious gold watch that his wife Prada gave him as a wedding present 30 years ago and a small gold braclet that a client gave him. John has twin boys called Sachin and Shiv who are 23 years old who are both at University.

Every day John travels into London but today was going to be a very different day he was flying to New York on a business trip to a meeting with all the top doctors in the world. The alarm did not go off and he overslept, he missed his train to the airport and had to get a later flight. As he settled into his seat on the Jumbo, the airhostess offered him a large black coffee. He read the papers and then closed his eyes. This afternoon was going to be the first meeting and he didn’t want to be tired.

In his sleep he could hear voices screaming at the back of the plane and then an announcement if there was a doctor on board. He waited five minutes until another announcement came and by this time he could tell it was a ladies voice that was screaming. He gets up from his seat and looks for the airhostess to let her know that he is a doctor and can he help. As he got closer and closer he knew that she was very pregnant and about to have a baby. John had never felt himself panic before, he was now not going to be a heart surgeon but instead was going to be a doctor who was going to have to deliver a baby.

- The skipper flipped to the last page of the article, ran his eyes over a few sentences then tossed the article on top of a tall pile of maps and other table debris. Caveat observed his two escape artists, as they were struck with a sudden urge to busy themselves about the cabin to appear attentive to the forsaken microbe problem. Meanwhile, he did some self-reflecting and grew a bit apprehensive about all the lengthy monologues he had been giving.

Creative Writing: Memories of our Life Essay

- Isn’t it funny how much of our lives will be forgotten. I think it is. We spend so much time immersed in these little moments that will soon float downstream, never to be seen again. I do, at least. I imagine my mind to vaguely resemble the moon, at least in a metaphorical sense. Meteors roar out of the cosmos and smash into me, and the collateral damage wipes out days and months of memories in favor of an impression of a single catastrophic event. Sometimes I feel like I’m all craters where all sorts of memories used to be....   [tags: moon, little moments, forgatten moments]

Essay on The Issue of Ethics in Writing Fiction

- ETHICS/TIMEFRAME/RESOURCES Prose fiction writers have escaped the strict scrutiny of ethics in almost all ethics debates because the characters/subjects are not real, Gay Lynch asks in her article, “what can a writer of fiction steal: a voice, a landscape, some history , a name or a story?” (2005). The Oxford Dictionary defines ethics as the: “standards of right behaviour; moral principles”(2011), therefore according to the literature, the issue of ethics in writing fiction is a responsibility of the writer who has to understand his/her own personal ethical standards....   [tags: with personal interaction i the author]

Adventure Essay: Pip's Adventure

- I woke with a start in my tiny, dark dorm room. There was a persistent tapping coming from my window. I leaped out of bed and waved my wand groggily. A few candles on my desk lit up, illuminating the shape of a large, snowy owl. "Gamma!" It was the headmaster's owl. He only left his roost for important matters, and in times like these, it could only be bad news. I threw open the sash and took the heavy envelope from his beak. He alighted on my head and watched as I read, Dear Miss Shadowcaster, Something has come up in which I feel your participation would be most fortuitous....   [tags: Creative Writing, Adventure Essay]

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]
