It had been love at first sight, the day I met Tom. That stormy night
so many years ago, I can remember every last detail of it. The second
I’d seen him, our eyes had locked. He was tall, had chocolate brown
hair and eyes I could stare into all day. I knew instantly I was in
love. A mutual friend had seen the intent gaze we shared and
introduced us. And from then on, everything just got better and
It was like living a dream. He took me out to dinner, met my parents –
they loved him, he even agreed to come shopping with me. He’d have
done anything for me, and I would have for him. We were literally
inseparable. I remember when he had had to go away for two weeks on
business. I nearly fell apart! I remember thinking to myself how there
was no way I could ever survive without him, two weeks was bad enough.
He’d proposed to me on the 22nd July, about 11 months after we first
started going out. Our friends were surprised at how soon it all was,
but we both knew we were meant to be together. We got married about 5
months after that, and it was the wedding I’d always dreamed of.
It was purely coincidental that the wedding was in December, but that
was fine by me. I’d dreamed of a white wedding for as long as I could
remember. A dusty blue sky, glistening flakes of snow, a winter
wonderland. Everything seemed like it was just meant to be when it
began snowing only the day before the wedding. I was overjoyed, it was
all just so perfect. I couldn’t believe it was really happening.
I had the most amazing dress, white material that glistened when it
caught the light. The church was full of flowers, white and pink
... middle of paper ...
...d I looked down at Lily.
She was going to be ok. They had got the marrow they needed for her,
but at the expense of my darling Tom’s life. I didn’t care about her
anymore, all I wanted was Tom. The pure bad luck and misfortune of it
all teased me. Everything had been so perfect, and now the unluckiness
of it all seemed unreal.
As months went by, not a minute passed when I didn’t think of him. I
talked to him everyday, it was the only way I could cope. At least if
I convinced myself he was up there somewhere listening to me, and that
I would see him again one day, I could get on with life, just.
As I pulled myself back together, and learnt to live with my broken
heart; I was appalled at myself for ever blaming Lily. She was
possibly the one thing that kept me going and the only real thing that
I had left of Tom.

- Death and Liberation The sweat on my cold palms glistened like glitter as I traced the path of my lifeline with my weary eyes. The waiting room was motionless while the crisp air conditioner in the hospital building pounded through the relentless eighty degree spring. A crinkled newspaper on the stand next to me was outdated and torn, as if someone has brutally thrown it aside during a monetary loss of the calm tide. Can you use Febreeze to push the scent of death out of the air. Or will you end up with a mixture of death and “fresh spring linen” afterwards.... [tags: thoughts, goose, dove]

- Dave Barry: The Evolution of a Creative Genius Humor, as a creative effort, has been respected throughout the world, I’m sure, since the beginning of spoken language. There is nothing in the world like conjuring up a joke or some other anecdote that sends a group of people off into a fit of laughter. In fact, throughout time, people have attempted to make humor at least some part of their professional career. Court jesters made the royalty of the castle laugh at his foolish behavior. Playwrights have included humor in their tragic works to provide some comedic relief from all of the terribly sad events.... [tags: Writer Writing Humor Papers]

- Gutkind and "Fixing Nemo" I was actually fascinated by the story “Fixing Nemo”, I thought I gave a new light on what may be to come in the future.

Similarly, I noticed a style of writing that she used in the other book “Henrietta Lacks” however in this piece I felt that something was missing, purpose....

- When I first began Writing 101 I only had skills from high school and creative writing, and had no experience writing in a college setting.

I started this class believing that I knew a lot about writing simply because I wrote often in my spare time, and creative writing was my favorite subject in high school. Now that this class is coming to an end, I realized there was so much I did not know about writing such as the rules and styles of writing.... [tags: Writing, Writing style, Creative writing]

- THE CREATIVE PROCESS As a student of Creative Media Practice, I have come to appreciate the concept of practice as research, people set about research for a diversity of reasons, but the major goals for academics is to address a problem, find things out or establish new heights. According to Robin Nelson in his book, Practice as Research in the Arts: “The term ‘Arts Practice as Research’ would probably not have been coined had artists not gotten involved with modern higher education systems in respect to programmes of learning” (2013: 3)....

- 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]
