Creative Writing- Fastest Land Craft on Earth

- The sand was hot, my face dripping with sweat. Taking a drink of water I looked at the vast open desert that will be below me in only a few short moments. Preparing for years on end, I stepped in and sat down. Twisting knobs and setting switches, I flipped the ignition. The giant dual engines came to life with an enormous roar with the slight hint of a whistle. Sand swept into the sky creating a wicked dust storm. “30 second to launch!!” a man behind several computer screens shouted into the headset....   [tags: Creative Writing Examples]

As God put his head to the window, at once, he felt light shining through his soul. Six years old. Age ceased to define him and time ceased to exist. Silence seeped into every crevice of the room, and slowly, as the awe of the vision engulfed him, he felt the gates slowly open. His thoughts grew fluid, unrestrained, and almost chaotic. An untouched imagination had been liberated, and soon, the world around him transformed into one of magnificence and wonder....   [tags: personal narrative]
