Something New

Posted in Lincoln, Lincoln's Psychology, My Books, Uncategorized, Writing by DLFowler on May 19, 2012

Okay, so I’ve been quiet for a while. It happens. But I have a good excuse. It’s called Lincoln Raw – inside the legend. If you want to know whether it’s worth not hearing from me for a bit, try out the sample chapter on my website.

Lincoln Raw is an attempt to get intimate with the most pivotal president in our country’s history. To delve into the early life traumas that forged his emotions, and how his complex personality helped create the America we live in today.

It’s not a biography, it’s a story told by him in first person. I try hard to capture his storyteller’s voice throughout. And I interlace his early life experiences with decisions he made as an adult, to connect probable cause with potential effect.

Lincoln Raw is a work in progress. I’ll try to be more diligent about posting here. Especially now that I found the secret formula that lets me type new posts on my iPad.

Why do you read?

Posted in Inside a Writer's Head, Reading by DLFowler on August 18, 2010

Some of us read for entertainment, others want to learn something. I like to live vicariously through a book’s characters. I read slow and try to let characters get deep inside my head. I want them to play with my emotions.

How about you? Why do you read?
