“I Just Want to Get Off this Fucking Planet”

I wrote a story last week called Eclipsed and posted it, a strange story in my view. I don’t like to explain my stories because there’s usually no explanation. I write from the gut. I don’t plan, or think. In fact, my best pieces get written because I’m not thinking. Words just tumble out, and […]


Shortest Post Ever!

I want this girl’s hair! No stories this week! Just wanted to say that I’m pushing on edits of my book, thanks to a couple of wonderful blog buddies that I called out in my last post ( – they helped with tremendous suggestions and edits. Hope to illustrate the publishing journey through the blog, […]

The Demise of Trent Lewin

Dear bloggers, As a friend of Trent Lewin’s, I regret to inform you that this blogger has ceased to exist. He had a reasonable run. He wrote things that were far too long.

Trent Lewin and the New News: How I Bred with a Dolphin Girl

                  Wake up.                 The air smells like shit. A skunk took a dump in my boots.                 On the way to the coffee shop, a podcast tells me I can be rich. Me, Trent Lewin, a rich man with no worries. I like it. I really do.                 “What would you like?” asks […]

Shocking Proof that Trent Lewin is a Robot

You won’t believe me, but I’m not real. Not a real human being. I’m a robot. An automaton. Trent Lewin is an anagram (try it, and you will see), and that name was always a hint that something was different about who I am – that in fact, I am no one. I never was. […]
