    Just Another Day

      The alarm wakes Tom. He reaches blindly for the button. 4.30 A.M. Dragging himself from the bed, he flicks a switch that illuminates a lamp, and then stands before the window that overlooks the shoreline. Even on Christmas Day he runs through his daily exercise ritual...

    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.

    I'll spend weeks writing something just to look

    it over again and decide it's awful. When I look back at it years later, I see it's potential and realize it was genius. My criticism is far from constructive. Sadly it hurts my writing more than it helps and writing happens to be one of my favorite hobbies.
