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. It was a very strange
sight, seeing all these people dead, but somehow not hurt, at least
not on the outside. All I wanted to do was find someone, get a story,
then leave this terrible place.
I searched for hours beneath the wreckage, desperately rummaging
around to find somebody. I was there long after the television crews
left, after the radio interviewers, hunting. As the sun began to go
down, I thought I might as well give up, that there was no life left,
when I heard a whimper. I couldn’t tell where it came from, so I
shouted, “Hello? Is there anybody there?” No reply. I shouted again,
louder this time, so that it echoed around the cliffs. Then I saw her.
Lying beneath one of the detached wings of the shattered aircraft,
only her bare, pale arm was visible, but she was waving it around
desperately. I looked around for someone who could help me - God knew
I couldn’t lift that thing by myself - but everyone had gone. I
whipped out my phone, and called the only person I knew would help me.
Tom. My ever supportive, car...

wanted to know now.
I rang Tom that night; I wanted answers:
“Well, there is something strange in the records on the black box” He
began to explain, after the usual hellos, “its seems that the pilots
are just talking, and then suddenly, half way through a sentence, it
falls quiet. Then you can hear the second pilot asking what’s wrong.
He has panic in his voice, but there doesn’t seem to be anything
actually wrong in the room. And then, he falls quiet as well, and this
is when the plane begins to soar down the beach.”
I was amazed, and it made me even more intrigued by the story. “Thank
you Tom, keep working.”
“I will, I’ll call you whenever I hear more.”
I flipped the top of my phone down and sat back in my chair. I could
tell this was the start of something really exciting.

- We walked down into the bustling docks, stinking of long dead fish and seaweed. We walked past the decreped old fishing boats and their owners, all with rotting wooden lobster pots and old rope nets. The huge ship was moared in the harbour, its ancient gangplank rested lightly on the hole filled pier. Mr Cheese, our navigator, stood at the top polishing his peg leg, while Meet-Hook stood behind working on yet another wax painting. Otis and Carla ran up the gangplank and began to load the crates of sugar and cotten from the plantations into the hold.... [tags: Creative Writing Examples]

- The waiting room was still and quiet except for the hypnotic tick of the old plastic clock hanging on the wall. A smell evoking images of latex gloves and mouthwash hung in the air, as the dentist worked behind the closed door. The little boy across the room fidgeted uncontrollably while his mother chose to ignore it. Her face was drawn and pale. Her hands were placed on top of her lap and she wrung them continuously. She wore baggy red patterned trousers, a multi-coloured striped jumper and on her head was a faded red bandana, firmly sealed over a mass of scruffy brown curls.... [tags: Creative Writing Essay]

- As I saunter onto the school field, I survey the premises to behold people in coats, shielding themselves from winter's blues. The sun isn't out yet, but the place bursting with life and exuberance, with people gliding across the ice covered floor almost cat-like. The field is effervescent and despite the dire conditions, the field seems to have taken on a life of its own. The weather is bad and the ice seems to burn the skin if touched, yet the mood is still euphoric. The bare shrubs and plants about the place look like they've been whipped by Winter himself....

- It was a frosty night. The ground was soft, but dry. The sun had almost set, and thick grey clouds moved slowly and silently through the sky. The air smelt damp, the only sound anyone could have heard was their own breathing, and the occasional chirping of a bird above. The air was cool, a soft wind blew through the trees and Corporal Brown shuddered, though not with discomfort and coolness, but with terror and anxiety for the forthcoming events. As the slight whistle from the wind sounded in her ears, she lowered herself down, as low as she could get, into the soft muddy earth amongst the bushes.... [tags: Creative Writing Essay]

- He was lying there still and calm, oblivious to the rain pouring through the holes in the rusted roof. The warehouse was abandoned many years ago, the air was thick with dust making it difficult to breathe; the smell was like burnt toast. The disused machinery loomed out of the dark corners, covered in cobwebs ghostly images. The Assassin was unaware of his immediate surroundings, his mind focused on his mission. His vantage point gave him a perfect line of fire. A neglected road that was parallel to the decaying wasteland where homeless people built their makeshift homes lay between the Assassin, his targets hideout.... [tags: Creative Writing Essay]
