The sound of a party nears, the bass echoes throughout the suburban neighbourhood. The bass somehow grows louder. It takes me back to that night which I show very little remorse for. It was an experience of a life time The full moon shines above us, illuminating our high street garments. Neon green and pink was the theme as we swaggered down the quiet boulevard. We look at one another as the trembling bass in the distance reverberated to our ears. We smile and chuckle as curiosity grows stronger. The celebration is near. The party loomed ahead; the stench of alcohol invited us to walk towards the populated area. Girls wearing tight and short outfits made us smile, as they prowled on past. Their beauty made us search in every direction, searching like a light house on a foggy night. Time vanished as if someone had fast forward time. Hours went like minutes and minutes went like seconds. The liveliness came to a record low, as the small hand struck twelve o’clock. All went silent as rumours spread, that the cops were called. A sudden blaze of energy erupted causing everybody to fear the chance of getting caught. It was as if someone had kicked the hornets’ nest over. The party came to a halt; everyone was speechless waiting patiently for the “go” signal. Time went slowly as the seconds ticked in the background. A sudden sound of thumping came from the entrance. We all feared the police to be beyond that door waiting to chuck us into the back of their van. The host slowly unlocked the door revealing and intoxicated young man holding a smashed bottle. His face glowing bright red, spitting out every possible offensive word to the poor guy. The dispute carried on. A sudden noise of glass breaking blurred in the back, as four young men stormed through the front entrance, tightly gripping broken beer bottles. Their faces furious looking, as they scanned the room. All went berserk, everyone hurried towards the entrance, The thugs hustled back onto the...

Creativewriting piece based on the short animation film ‘Alma’
The streets of Barcelona were plastered with sludge and the rooftops were being bleached by the purity of the white snow as it falls gently, caressing the slates that have been fractured by the intense heat of the Spanish summer which, had long since passed. There were very few people scattered around the city, as the bitterness of the wind was far too cold for someone acclimatised to the normal heat of Barcelona.
With the quaint sound of footsteps pattering down the street ‘Alma’ found herself at the foot of an enormous wall. Engraved on the wall was an array of many names, carved with a stone or chalk these names were those of other children like Alma. Alma’s first thought was to pick up the nearest stone so she could do as others had before her. Rummaging around, through the thick snow she finally found a suitably sized stone. She reached as high as possible and slowly scribed her name as neat as she could.
After admiring what she had added to the wall she began to continue walking, just at that moment something caught her eye. It was a doll in the shop window of what appeared to be an old toy shop which had once thrived but was now deprived of a decent upkeep. On taking a closer look Alma noticed the doll had a coat just like hers. Looking down at her coat and back up again she noticed something else. Its facial features were almost identical to those of Alma’s....
Creativity is Everything: You can Make Writing Fun by being Creative
If someone was to come up to me and ask me what kind of writer I am, I’d say that I someone who enjoys making up fairy tales along with reading and watching movies about fairy tales. I am a writer who likes to use their imagination, this is due to the kinds of books that I use to read. I wanted to be the next Dr. Seuss. Growing up, my imagination is all I really had. My family had to move a lot because my dad always had to switch jobs. We’d move to different states every couple of months, sometimes we’d stay for a year or two. I never really had anything stable. I couldn’t participate in any sports or extra-curricular activities. There was one thing that I did have though, I had my imagination. With my imagination, I drew the weirdest pictures and wrote from the most magical to the most gruesome stories I could. I always had myself occupied with my stories. I was never bored when we were on the road, I’d be writing random ideas for stories in my spiral notebook if we were on the road and read books like there was no tomorrow. I made writing and reading fun for myself and I enjoyed doing it.
My Timeline with Reading
As with all children, they being with their parents reading bedtime stories to them. I loved being read to at night. My favorite bedtime books were several Dr. Seuss books like One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and Green Eggs...

Writing is an art form created by past experiences, future hopes, fantasies, and limitless imagination. It brings feelings, knowledge, adventure, mystery, and foreign times and places to life. Writing can be very personal, remedial, cathartic, and affect you in ways that could change your life forever. Participating in Analytical Composition and Literature this year has been a jo urney that has brought about personal growth as a writer and allowed me to express my growth in different writing skill genres. In challenging myself throughout this course I feel as if I have succeeded in expanding my vocabulary, progressing in my editing skills, and improving my overall proficiency in literacy, even during those moments when my writing felt somewhat deficient.
This trimester there have also been times when I have failed to inspire, excite, translate, or adequately create my works, but even these tragedies were not in vain. I was able to improve my writing and turn my deficiencies into success stories by learning from my mistakes and produce some good work. My foremost accomplishments in this class came in the form of my persuasive piece and my research paper. These two assignments more than any others, enriched my writing...
My Problem in Writing And solutions
Every time I am asked to write about any topic, I find myself facing a major problem asking myself
what I am going to write, and how I am going to present, express my ideas and support my personal
opinions in a clear organized way that the reader would understand me. Learning how to write an essay
was a frustrating process for me until, I came to understand some steps that made it easy and sometimes
I learnt to start by researching the topic using all different resources available like interest and
libraries. I write Down questions, notes, quotations, facts, interesting passages and it s sources. It s always
good to have a variety of Sources; Quoting from a few sources only, will sound inexperienced; while
quoting from numerous sources Will sound knowable and supportive to the topic.
As I am researching the topic I start analyzing the arguments of different writes and authors. The
argument consists of two main things a claim and reasons for that claim, neither a claim without reasons;
nor reasons without a claim is an argument. When I am creating my own argument, first I identify my
main claim then locate all its reasons. The reasons should show explanations of the claim and whether it s
true or not. I also map out if there is enough evidence supporting my claim, and if there is any...
