- ... She also enjoys taking off her clothes around me. Or did. Before our problems started. My problems. We met at a writer's conference in Atlanta in. She was there gathering manuscripts, looking for that undiscovered gem; I was there to put Parade of Echoes in the hands of as many editors as possible. I assumed she was just another aspiring author as I sauntered up next to her at the bar. She had the sexy librarian look, wire-rimmed glasses and yellow number 2 pencil through the hair bun. Four hefty manuscripts cradled in her left arm and three flash drives hung from her neck....   [tags: personal narrative]

My Most Dangerous Game

- ... Rainsford would first sneak into the house, drag out Ivan’s body, and use it as bait for the dogs. This would distract them long enough to get into the cellar where General Zaroff kept his prisoners, and release them. After he rounded up his army, he would give them the wooden stakes he had carved while he was in the tree. Once everyone knew the plan, they would attack the general in his bed. When they were done with this task, they would all work together to kill the dogs with the general’s weapons....   [tags: personal narrative]

My Mother's Paramount Influence

- My mom was the most sensible and beautiful person I have ever known. She was a statuesque woman with gorgeous, raven- black hair which perfectly bordered her oval shaped face. Her skin resembled that of a porcelain doll, and her voice was like that of an angel. Her perfectly formed, thin, pink lips often spoke of love and motivation. Her strong hands were testimony of the hard work and dedication that she always put forth to keep the farm and family going. Performing above and beyond with every task was how she lived her life; nothing was too small to be done right....   [tags: personal narrative]

Regrettng My I Phone

- Thud...Thud.THUD. I almost regretted buying the iPhone. What I regret even more was setting the alarm to 5:00am. I gently ended my pleasant sleep, and felt an immediate blast of humidity. The kind you can’t even get used to for a month. Slowly, the outline of my apartment gained resolution. I could see a clear view of the tropical trees and slightly inhospitable, but developed landscape. There was a sense of dust; construction. You could smell it so well that tasting it would be imaginable. I’m careful not to wake my grandparents or my sister and suddenly I remember why I had my phone wake me....   [tags: personal narrative]

Overcoming my Fear of Roller Coasters

- I have this fear that causes my body to shake. When I think about it, my skin becomes pale and cold. It’s death speeding through my mind. Once I have seen these monstrous roller coasters, the only thing in my mind was fear. Knowing that I’m afraid to go on these rides, I didn’t want to look like a fool in front of my friends.

- Harry Potter has been a part of me for over half of my life. My family began reading it together when I was in first grade, on a recommendation from my grandmother. I immediately fell in love. Living in a magical world sounded ideal to me and i had never heard of anything more magical than Hogwarts. School never was a drag for me like it is for a lot of other kids so, the idea of this extra creative magical school was incredibly appealing.
