Crash and Burn - Original Writing

He was walking towards me. I was so nervous! I checked my hair and
make-up, put on a bit of lipstick and I was all set to go. But who was
I kidding? My knees were as weak as jelly, just like they always were
when I saw him. I took in a deep breath as he flashed me a perfect
white smile.

" Hi Alex". His deep voice always spread butterflies into my stomach.

" Hi Charlie, how's it going?"

" Good, good. Um… me and a few mates are going down to the movies
tonight, fancy being my date?"

I had been waiting for this night for all my Secondary School life!
Charlie Watts was finally asking me out! After months of looking at
each other from afar, it was finally happening!

" Um…" my tongue swelled to double its normal size so I couldn't
speak. " I'd love to! What time shall we meet?"

" I will pick you up at 7. That ok?"

" That's perfect! See you tonight?"

" Right, bye!" and with a wink, he swaggered away with pride.

I stopped my self squealing with girlie delight as I walked home.
Going out with Charlie would improve my social status so much! He was
the most popular guy in school, not to mention years older than me!
Going out with him will make my life long dream come true, which was
to be cool and popular.

I got home at around 4:30, and immediately started getting ready. If
tonight was going to be the best night of my life, I had to look good
for it! I showered, dried my hair about a hundred times, did my make
up and painstakingly picked out my outfit! I finished getting ready at
6:45, so I sat on the wall outside my house.

At 7 on the dot, a car came banging down my road. It looked about
thirty years old, was rusty and falling apart. It looked as safe as a

James Kelman's The Burn Essay

- James Kelman's story, The Burn has been interpreted as a universal representation of the condition of the working class in an oppressive society. Also, critics have brought to light the stylistic accomplishment of Kelman's writing; his ability to use language to bring to bear a psychological and emotional state of being within a fraction of an individual’s life; but, there is another perspective that may have been an unintentional result of his genius as a writer. His unnamed character gives us an additional lens to view his journey....   [tags: The Burn Essays]

Descriptive Essay - Original Writing

- It’s a beautiful morning, as my group of friends and I wake up, we hear the pounding and the thrashing of the water slamming on the moss covered granite rock, I go down the eroded leaf covered pathway to fetch water just like I would do every morning, the sun had just begun to rise, the mixture of scarlet red, orange, and a bleach-like yellow beaming against the hurried water of the river that led into the waterfall shone like flakes of gold floating on top of the whitening water. The serene environment of the surrounding rocks overlooking the waterfall, the ambience of water clashing against the granite, and the aroma of the white pine filling the forest is an awe inspiring experience to al...   [tags: Odor, Olfaction, Smell, Burn]

Essay on The Crash

- I remember; Oh I remember. I remember the flowers, the fog, the ocean. I loved collecting the swirly shells, delicate little things that lay on the shore. I remember the waves, the push the pull, the tranquility, the silence. I always came here, ever since I was 4. I liked the ocean, it made me feel like the sky is the limit. The ocean was a good place, until that one morning. I remember the cold, crisp winter morning, the mist, the figure that came out of the fog.

- Original Writing The insatiable hunger ravaged Velkan from within; it burned within his soul. The hunger consumed him from within. He could sense the prey ahead. Once, the sense had had the right to a name but it was gone with the remainder of Velkan’s humanity. He delved into that shattered husk that was all that remained of Velkan son of Vlad and recalled a single word; smell. However, smell is was an inadequate term for what the sense had become.

doctor holding a rusty syringe.

Charlie jumped out of the car and swayed a little as he came to join
me on the pavement. I could smell the vodka on his breath from a mile

He managed a slurry 'hello', kissed me on the cheek and led me to the
far side of the car. He clambered into the seat, and I slid in after
him. The contents of the car look just as bad as the outside of it. I
recognised the driver and the other two passengers from Charlie's
year. None of them decided to greet me, except the driver, who looked
back at me with bloodshot eyes, and managed a staggered 'hello'.
Everything about the situation screamed 'accident', but I decided to
ignore my gut feelings and stayed in the car as it coughed and
spluttered its way into motion. The driver was going so fast, when
ever we turned a corner I hung on for my life, scared that I would be
flung from the car. The seat belts weren't exactly sturdy.

Out of nowhere, another car came whizzing around the corner. The
driver tried a dodgey swerve, but he didn't pull away in time. We
collided head on with the other car. All I can remember is the
horrifying sound of bones breaking and crunching metal.

I awoke on the pavement. I couldn't fell my legs but could see that
they were very badly injured. My chest heaved and my head was dripping
with sweat and blood. I could see paramedics running towards me with a
trolley, and blacked out again.

The next time I woke up I was in a hospital bed. All I could see was
wires coming out of me and going into a loud, beeping machine. I tried
to speak but all I could manage was short rasping sounds.

A nurse materialised by my side, and checked the machines and my fluid

" Alex, Alex, can you hear me? My name is Emily. You were in a
terrible car crash. You were very badly injured, and have had a couple
of operations. I'm really sorry, but your legs were beyond repair".

From then on I've been in a wheelchair. My family and I have had to
move into a bungalow, and I've had to move school. Life has been
really hard.

All this happened because all I wanted to be was cool and popular. I
regret it so much. So do me a favour. From now on, follow your gut
feelings and be happy with who you are.
