I, Dalton Lewis, have the reds — I’m on fire, writing 28,000 words in thirteen short days. Why? It’s National Novel Writing Month. I’m crafting a fantasy tale of terror and intrigue that will be 50,000 words because that’s the goal length of a NaNoWriMo book. This one will feature…

I, Dalton Lewis, re-read the introduction to V Max One. I am pleasantly surprised that it isn’t too terrible. We start with Ares Morgan, a young man who wakes up on a pier surrounded by ocean in every direction around him. Creatures swim in the water below him, strange creatures…

I read a book! And it wasn’t bad!

I, Dalton Lewis, have read 50 books in the last five years. That’s an atrocious amount, way too low for a novelist. During those five years, though, I had a breakdown, moved back in with my parents, stopped driving, failed to get a job, and turned forty. Considering that it’s…

I, Dalton Lewis, didn’t want to write a column about the Chicago Bears and their 26–6 loss to the Cleveland Browns, but I changed my mind. I decided that I had to say something. People are talking: saying to fire the coach, fire the general manager. People are screaming all…

I, Dalton Lewis, woke up several times during the night a day ago. I was lying on the couch — where I normally sleep. I got up, switched positions, and went back to bed. Eventually I woke up at 615 and hit the snooze. I couldn’t stay asleep, though, so…

It’s been a while since I started a…

I, Dalton Lewis, noted the following observations from the Chicago Bears 20–17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals:

  1. The defense played much better than the loss to the Rams the previous week. The pass rush showed up. Robert Quinn played better, and so did Khalil Mack. Getting pressure against the quarterback…
I had 1,052 free downloads on one day.

I, Dalton Lewis, had 1,744 downloads of my novella The Hauntings of Old Liberty High during the five day free offer period. That’s great. I consider that to be a great success. It wasn’t always going to be a hit. The whole thing started a couple of months ago when…

  1. The Bears shouldn’t have lost. They had chances to make plays and didn’t. They missed a few coverages and gave up big plays. They were in the game for three quarters and had a chance to pull it off but couldn’t put everything together.
