Chenzhuang Village notoriously known as China’s ghost town and phantom malls were abandoned. The stadiums, shopping centres and hundreds of accommodation once completed were now left deserted and derelict. Buildings, left for the rats to scavenge at and debris left lying around to rot. No longer was there beautiful buildings looming over the small village, but empty and forlorn places for squatters to hide and take shelter.
As I watched the pale moon lie on its back whilst the midnight sky started to engulf the village in a blanket of darkness, a sense of melancholy enveloped me. Whilst the faint sound of the ancient street lamp was to be heard, I began to wonder what might have been. What I had done was transgressing the boundaries of society. I had gambled everything I had and lost them all. I had no husband, no family, and no friends. What I had done was truly unforgiveable. The only place that I could take refuge was in Chenzhuang Village, a small village made for industrialisation. The village was my saviour, a blessing from God; a place where I could seal my true identity from those who knew me.
Smells of pollution and debris littering the street wafted a foul smell through the air leaving a smoky trail of smog behind. Long gone was the autumnal colours that lit up the inky skies of grey; now left was a sea of darkness. Unbeknownst to me was that in a few hours my life would be changed forever: a spot of time, ‘the road not taken’, or in this case, taken, that would mark the beginning of the end.
I saw the scene unfold. Cautiously, a shady black silhouette stepped out from the depths of nothingness and peered around the corner of the damp derelict building. I could feel my heat rising in my body; a sense of stillness overcame me and left me feeling numb and helpless. Antique cobwebs were sucking me in, drawing you deeper into the depths of nothingness. The sickly smell of the rotting debris was filling the smoke ridden air and

    How to make your creative writing better 1. USE NON-LINEAR STRUCTURE This means that you should practice writing stories out of chronological (or time) order. You could use flashbacks, or start your story at the end and then write about events that led up to the crisis. TV shows like Revenge and Lost have used this technique. You could also tell the story from different character’s perspectives. Novels like Across the nightingale floor alternate between the female protagonist’s perspective (written…

    Emma’s creative writing ideas -Think creatively – Try not to use the first idea that comes into your head from a stimulus because chances are other people will have that same idea. If you are really stuck for ideas try changing time periods, set it in the future or the past, or a different country. Done to death ideas about belonging include the migrant experience and teenagers in school- if you can somehow twist these overused ideas into something unusual then they may be ok to use. -Use sensory…

    STRUCTURE ORGANIZATION is as important in creative nonfiction as it is in fiction. You need to have a plan before you actually sit down to write. You don’t want to ramble. This is as annoying in a writer as it is in a public speaker. You need to make sense of all the materials you have gathered. Some writers actually do outlines, which serve as blueprints for their essays or narratives. At the very least, they help the writer to focus, to be coherent. We generally think of structure in architectural…

    Creative Writing My breath steamed the air, my eyes wide open looking into the distance as drips of sweat rolled down my forehead. My ears twitched at every sudden noise; I just hoped nothing would jump out of the darkness. I kept thinking about where I was and how I got to this place. Every footstep echoed for miles as I stepped upon the Iron Gate, the noise rattling my brain. I came to a halt, my sweaty hand roaming over the freezing cold steal on my chest as I tightened my only protection…
