    When Tomorrow Comes Part Seven - Chapter

    Four Jock moved up behind me and softly, gently, slowly began to rub my shoulders. I paid him little mind - I was transfixed by the way the sunlight poured through the picture window and the leaded stained glass inserts on either side, making reflected multi-colored patterns on...

    Eleven We shuttled between both houses for the next couple of weeks while Jock inspected the extra bedsteads and set them up. I was glad to discover that all of these except one were narrow twin beds. There was no question about which room the double bed would be going into. I...

    I'm working on a new draft of my masters thesis

    and I need some readers to let me know if what I've got so far is moving in the right direction. Comment or shoot me a message if you're up for reading a "hot off the presses", Craig Newman original.

    Eighteen Jock set MacTavish down as we reached the back stoop. The top of the Dutch-style door and the one kitchen window were wide open to the air, and the fragrance of a savory rabbit pie and fresh-baked bread drifted out. The little Scottie licked his chops, growled in...

    Don't you hate it when you're writing a story,

    and it's going good for a few chapters, then all of the sudden your mind starts going blank, and you can't figure out how to write the rest of the story, and whatever you do write sounds lame?... Gahhhhh I hate it!!!
