The escape.
I woke up on a summer day, birds chirping, children playing, but all the joy and the innocence of this was behind me. I couldn't just get up and play, or sing, because I was chained to a wall. This is what happens in this country when you commit something really bad. The war finished a few years ago but the situation here wasn’t as beautiful as some people tried to show it. My friends and I were caught by police while we were having my 23rd birthday party. They just came in and took us somewhere.
I was lying in my own filth, tied up for several days, without being able to go to the toilet; it's not a pretty sight. My body was slowly wasting away, no food, and only drops of water, I felt like I was slowly passing away even though I still didn’t know where I was or what I had done. I could see my team-mates, my friends, slowly going insane. They were talking in their sleep, screaming for freedom, but what was the point. The guards treated us like animals. Finally, after the next two days the guard unchained me and said, ‘’C’mon you murderer, get up, you are able to go for a 30-minute walk.’’ And after that I realised what had happened. We were caught by police by mistake... I was trying to talk to the guards there but no... They didn’t want to listen, they were just laughing at me. However, there was one old guard that was different to all the other ones there. He talked to me and told me what had happened and what I had done. He said that FBI and police were looking for a serial killer and that I was matching his description so they caught me and brought me here. I did ask a few other questions but he didn’t want to answer. The last question that he answered was a question about what this place was. He answered promptly and walked away, while I, instead of walking around in a circle(this was all I had to walk, a small circle with about 3metre tall fence…...

...Sharon Grisham GE 217 Creative Writing I chose this picture taken by the ASPCA organization because it really captured my heart when I saw it. The target audience is all people who love animals and care about them. The claims in this picture are animals are senselessly hurt. It also shows the depravity in some people’s nature by hurting defenseless animals for no reason other than just for the fun of it. ASPCA is trying to get people’s attention and appeal to their sense of right and wrong and be horrified by this picture. They want you to be upset enough to want to find out more about it and to help stop these acts or at least help the abused animals. The supporting evidence is where the dog had been partially skinned. That is also the part that caught my attention. This graphic picture of this great big place on the dog where .it has no skin is quite compelling. If you have any compassion at all this picture will upset you. Since this is a color picture it is more effective than if it had been in black and white. Black and white doesn’t show the details like color does. Therefore it wouldn’t have had the same reaction of disgust or horror. I am always very upset when I see those pictures on TV about all those poor abused animals, shown by the ASPCA organization. So I went looking on the Internet for pictures like those on TV. This picture is one of those I found. My son and I are both very caring animal lovers. We sometimes are so upset by......

Personal Statement - English Literature and Creative Writing

...I am drawn to study English Literature and Creative writing because I am passionate about and committed to reading and writing. I feel that a structured programme of study is imperative for me to achieve my long-term goal of establishing a successful and varied career as a writer. I know that the path I have chosen will often be difficult to walk but I have already taken a step toward its end by starting an Access course. Throughout my short time on the Access course I have gained confidence in my speaking skills. For example, during a recent discussion on gender and relationships in a graded English discussion I raised a point that the teacher had not thought of and was praised for doing so - this taught me that by pushing myself beyond my comfort zone by sharing my ideas and opinions I will be able to achieve my goals. I know that with the skills taught on the Access course I will be able to achieve my goal of studying and completing a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing. The Access course has taught me the importance of self-reflection and criticism through keeping a reflective log which documents my progress, obstacles and goals. I have learnt that I am able to be objective when analysing my own work and performance; this skill has helped me to realise that in order to improve my work I have to be critical of myself and be able to accept criticism from others, I feel that this skill will prepare me for the competitive world of writing. Another skill I......

...thirty degrees. Was that a problem for us? Did we see that as something negative? No, never. In fact, we would turn something like that into a positive. We would get the sledges out, we would build small ramps of snow down the hill so when you’re going down you get a bit of a jump. It was the best feeling ever, going down (pretty quick I must say), with the cold air and snow hitting your face, it was brilliant, I loved it. Writing this I’m getting flashbacks, like you get in movies, you know? My brain has sort of collected clips of me and added a nice piece of music to it, love when that happens. Makes me realise how lucky I am and how I shouldn’t take my life for granted, as we all do. When people ask me why I moved to England, I never really like to tell them, because, as perhaps rude this may sound, I don’t feel it’s anyone’s business. It’s not that I dislike England, not at all. I actually think it really is a beautiful country. In my opinion, it’s the most under rated country in the world. It’s different from Sweden though, very different. I’m writing this right now and I’m looking outside the window, fat trees with orange leaves, so simple, but so beautiful. It’s weird though, it’s foggy, but still a delight to see. You tilt your head thinking you can see past it. Quite pulchritudinous, quite uncanny. It’s just that I simply don’t feel like I belong here, this country, it’s not for me. It has everything one could ask for (except perhaps the weather, although......

...Vagueness, Ambiguity and Clarity in Writing John Mackey The first example that I have chosen to use for this assignment is Example number two; Example 2 I was thrown from my truck as it left the road. I was later found in a ditch by a flock of wild turkeys.  The vagueness in this example raises the question of why he was thrown from the truck. What caused this to happen? What were the underlying circumstances that ultimately led to being thrown from the truck? Another question that can be asked is where did the wild turkeys come from? There are all these questions that remain to be asked and also later to be answered. For the ambiguous side of the house, Dictionary.com defines ambiguity as doubtfulness or uncertainty of meaning or intention (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ambiguity). In this example what is the author’s intent on explaining? It is simply two sentences that very vaguely explain what happened but what is their purpose or intent that they are trying to achieve by saying what they did in the example? I believe that with this example there is more vagueness than there is ambiguity but also that the vagueness does lead to ambiguity. There are several questions left in this example unanswered. Re-Written Example I was thrown from my truck as it left the road because the roads were wet from the rain that had fallen throughout the night and I lost control of my truck. Later when I awoke I found myself lying in a ditch surrounded by a......

...English/340 Creative Writing Prof. Mary-Beth Brophy November 18, 2013 Michelle Robeson In my kitchen there is an orange accent wall. My husband and I spent several hours deciding what type of picture to hang on the wall. It had to be something meaningful that also had coordinating colors. We settled on a painting of Bourbon Street. My husband was born and raised in New Orleans and we spent about 9 months there before we got married so it seemed perfect. The painting is in hues of orange and yellow which remind me of the many sunsets we saw when we lived there, and it’s a corner that we spent many an afternoon drinking daiquiris and listening to the different types of street music that is always is abundance there. When I look at this picture I see the first time my husband brought me to New Orleans, 3 months into our relationship. It was a true test considering we drove from Texas to Louisiana, which is an 8 hour drive. We also stayed with his cousin in her home, which is nerve racking in itself, because as I said, we had only been dating for 3 months at this point. Much to our surprise, the drive went so smoothly. We laughed and joked the entire way, we never ran out of things to talk about and more importantly, we never got on each other’s nerves. When we arrived at his cousin’s home, I was greeted with the warmest welcome full of hugs and kisses; did I mention we had never met? For a first family introduction, it could not have gone any better. My husband spent the......

Tasmanian Qualifications Authority English – Writing ENW315109 TQA Student ID: 13X35189 Reflective Statement Expressing my own thoughts into writing has never been a real enjoyment; it probably has to do with my school education where we were asked to refer to the context of the books as learning materials as opposed to pure enjoyment. Education in Australia is very different to where I come from; it requires selflearning and self-reflection for overall development and self-improvement. Obviously the word “self” is important in education in Australia and from this perspective learning has become so much more real and enjoyable. One of the main reasons to choose English Writing is to express my thoughts, opinions and arguments in writing which I have never been encouraged to do before. Over the course of study I have developed various skills learnt different literary techniques and increased my vocabulary. This course is a very good platform for me to prepare myself...

...English assessment The earliest English towns most often grew around an intersection. People lived a peaceful country life in harmony with the environment, until the industrial revolution in the second half of the 18th century, which changed the calm lifestyle. The small rural citizens were forced to sell their land to the landlords and gradually moved to the cities, where they often only found poorly paid work in factories. The factories changed and eventually got bigger and bigger. The owner of the factory original lived near his factory and his workers, which he ruled over like a paterfamilias, during the 19 century, the factory towns developed into to large cities, where factory workers lived so closely together in horribly built buildings, also known as “back to backs”. The owners of the factories would, on the other hand, luxuriously in their big houses, far from the workers misery. After a while as the railway network spread in the 19th century, the middle class moved out of the cities, hereby the arise of the characteristic English neighborhoods with the double houses, that we know so well, and the cities were left to the working poor and the immigrants in the 19 and 20 century, which came to England from the Commonwealth. 1.

...again. The gunfire slackens, but isn’t gone. A bullet hits me in the chest. Pain shoots through me like lightning. I am tossed about like a ragdoll. I am pain. I falter, I fall. Pain, agony, torture worse than death. A cheer goes up behind me, the humans think they’ve won. There is nothing else. It pervades my consciousness - but like a golden bead at the back of my mind, my connection to the loft lingers. I think of home, of winging high above the clouds on rainy days, of strawberries and oats and fresh snowpeas, and of huddling next to my family on cold winters nights. I flap, I move my wings, with all my might. There is no pain, only the loft. I soar, the machines of death are far behind me now. I feel the loft looming closer. Past the English Channel, I see London, the familiar smoke, the bountiful scraps in the streets, and the loft where my brothers and sisters lie. I am spent, but I am home. I falter, flapping flusteredly as I fall towards home. I flop, a bedraggled bundle of feathers on the floor, but the angelic cooing of my siblings tells me I am home....

...Kirsten Mills Professor Belz English 1301 February 19, 2012 Monkey See, Monkey Do It was a bright, sunny day. Spring had just begun. I was finally starting to feel like a big kid. My mother purchased a glittery hot pink bike for my 10th birthday two months ago and a neon green bike for my younger brother who was only five. Of course, his bike was way smaller than mine. Everyday my brother and I would look forward to riding our bikes in the neighborhood while my mom walked along with us, until one day my back tire popped. In spite of my bike loss, I began to ride my brother's small bike too fast and toppled right over onto my chin. I knew I should not have been riding his bike because it was extremely too small for me, and my mother had told me not to. Instead, I did not listen and made my own decision causing me to have stitches put into the bottom of my chin. I learned that every now and then, accidents happen. [The last few sentences in this paragraph sound like you are ending the essay.] In particular, I was more than upset when I heard the loud popping noise and felt myself slow down near what seemed to be an apple tree. [Why?] "Wait up, something is wrong!" I shouted out to Michael. He was a few feet ahead of me and did not hear me. My mom ran up to me and started to examine the bike. We found a long gash in the back tire meaning an air pump would not fix this problem. After my......

...Creative Writing Unsent Letter from Beatrice to Benedick after Act 1 Scene 1 Benedick, You say that you are loved of all ladies, only me excepted, that’s where you are wrong. You say that you’ll die a bachelor, as if any woman in her right mind will wish to marry you. You delude yourself and your self-importance. You shall die a bachelor simply because no one will accept you; you should feel lucky that I even deem to speak with you. Although I spurn marriage and all it stands for, as you do, I at least have the respect of men, whilst you lack even the appreciation of any woman who possesses even a shred of intelligence, for you only know how to buy and manipulate those into loving you. You state that I’m “Lady Disdain” and that am I yet living, I tell you: the only disdain currently present within the vicinity of Messina is that of all woman towards you, you are just too blind to see the truth. For I live my life as I wish (the only thing of worth that you ever taught me) for which is the only reason I personal can suffer to be in your presence.

...Patron Jones September 25, 2014 Human Diversity Immersion Paper I chose to interview a good friend of mines father named Hector. He is forty-two years old and is of Mexican decent. He came to America for better job opportunities. In the interview, we discussed his beliefs, traditions, and mainly his story of how he began a life for his family in America. In Meigs County, Ohio, the produce fields hired Mexican laborers on worker permits. Hector started out working in produce fields then he became the boss about five years ago and received his green card. He moved to America over 10 years ago. Now he is an American and can speak very good English Hector believes in the Christianity faith. He beliefs that all people should be treated the same regardless of race and ethnicity. Hector said he came to realize that America wasn’t a place of equal opportunity. In Mexico, people are more willing to help each other out in difficult situation. Hector went on to explain in Mexico men were paid pretty much the same pay, which was very low. Hector explains that Mexicans will live in packs because it was easier and much affordable, but America was much different people didn’t look out for one another like they do in Mexico. “Americans are very selfish”, said Hector. During the Interview, he explained to me that in Mexico there is no age requirement for males to start working, so there are young boys working at six to ten years old to help support their family He also stated that......

What Is Creative Writing

...As for me, creative writing is a piece of art expression, very subjective, which is not dull and normal literature like news article or academic essay. If you ask how to write creatively, I would say inspiration can basis from anywhere, anything and anyone. Yet, it is not purely about thinking ‘outside of the box’ and writing something exciting. Creative writing is a style of writing mostly appears in feature stories, both fiction and non-fiction work. Writers need to generate their expression, maybe a viewpoint, an analysis and a story, from their inner-person meaning by their self of feelings, emotion, thoughts, opinion, imagination and even life experiences. It is a freedom writing, however, all should be a very original composition. Take an instance of our British leading fantasy novelist J.K.Rowling and her creativity of ‘Harry Potter’ series. The character Harry Potter is her sudden inspiration in 1990, when she was on the train to London, suddenly came up an idea to write a story of a little boy gets into a wizard school for study. It looks seems a children’s novel, while behind the wizards and magic adventures, there is deep moral fable, full of struggling between good and evil, life and death, right and wrong, love and hate, and that’s reflects Rowling’s life spiritual pathway and even her ideal of heroic characters. Other than fiction story, creative writing includes variety of its genres. It broadly uses in creative industry in order to express in kinds of......

English Creative Writing (Descriptive) - School Bus

...moving its inhabitants to the place of education (where no education had actually taken place for the past few decades.) On the upper level of the bus, towards the front end, a group of students (a typical breed of the teenage species) were gazing into their exercise books to plan ahead for their next test on what they have learned over the past few years. This particular test was a Controlled Assessment in English Language in which they had to write as creatively as they could in the time limit of an hour. This was not popular among students, even most teenagers, as the group were forced to close all communication channels, including cellular devices in which they shared digitalised sticky notes with a symbol before them and ChatSnaps in which they share self-destructing images. One of the more fulfilled looking students was gazing into his book of wisdom as he attempted to insert the words on one page of the book into another page in the book. This tedious method was known as drafting. While this was taking place, another student, who’s face looked determined to ‘ace’ the assessment had her back against the moving wall as she fell into a deep sleep after staying up the night before doing what was not technically possible to most of the other teenagers surrounding her. Her clothes, which were moving along the wall with her, looked as tattered as a tea stain on a piece paper as she struggled to wake from her slumber and failed to utter a sound from her hole of words. ......

...Rui Cao English 150 Dec 12 Portfolio reflection paper I have wrote five papers in total during this semester. Each papers I spent a lot of time and I put efforts worked on them a lot. I also did some in-class activities and I did learned something and gained some experiences. Except the activities I did in class, I also went outside and got involved with social community. The first paper I wrote was to analysis a kind of text. I chose a painting draw by Da Vinci. I opened the picture on the website by searching it on Google. When I looking at the picture, and when I described the picture, I included the story and history of this painting in order to understand the picture better. The second paper was museum walkthrough guide. This paper was what I liked the most since it was so interesting and fun to write this paper. I went to the museum on the campus and spent about three hours for observation and taking notes. I walked around the museum and visited the museum from the first floor to the third floor. I brought my notebook and draw a map of this museum. Then I go back home and composed this paper by presenting what I seen and how these exhibitions displayed in the museum. The third paper that I wrote was the investigative journalism. The topic I chose was the green space on the campus. I knew that the green space is not big enough for students to use on the campus thus I decided to asked the mower who works on the lawn area. After I asked him and got the information......
