Depths of DMW Lewis
Hello lovers and livers (the other kind of liver, if that’s even a word?) of all things literary! I’m Dave, aka DMW Lewis, and thanks for visiting my page. You seriously rock. Why a three letter acronym you ask? Because I have a very common name and needed to separate myself from the pack.
I’m a quirky and creative fellow from the suburbs of Denver with voices in his head. No, not the bad kind of voices, but the good kind–author kind. The kind that start flowing onto the pages and you can’t control them. I love telling, hearing, reading, and watching crazy stories or just amazing stories in general. I have quite a few under my belt at the ripe age of 26 with many more antics to come, though I’m afraid at times.
Originally an English major at Colorado State University with long dreams of becoming an author, one day it hit me that I didn’t need said degree to write and switched to something “practical” in order to find a job out of school for sure. Didn’t quite workout. Finished a Master’s Degree in something else practical in 2011. Kind of worked…kind of, though I’ve been fighting horrible job luck and spells of unemployment since graduating. If only they’d give a refund when the degree doesn’t work. In the meanwhile I’m living the dream of every dreamer and writing until I drop.
Currently seeking representation for my forth manuscript, YA Fantasy/Sci-Fi XAKK MARKS THE SPOT: THE INFINNA-NET PIRATES OF MEDIALUNA. See its page for the down low. I’m super close to finding a very special agent and have been reviewed several times in full. With plans of a full series with Xakk and his band of new age band of pirates, I’m also working into other titles as well.
The goal of my blog is to provide writing tips and tricks of the trade from professional blogs, post the kooky things that pop up in my mind on a regular basis, and most importantly build my platform as I grip into what’s today just a dream, tomorrow a reality (fingers crossed fingers crossed).

I was born and raised in Pakistan. Before , after and during my Masters in Marketing from London , I had started working. By the time I turned 25, I had worked in 3 continents of the world: Asia, Europe and North America.
I am a daughter, sister, advertising professional, masters in marketing, avid fashionista, devoted foodie, graduate in economics and finance, certified personal shopper and fashion stylist, self-proclaimed poet, curious traveler, music buff, friend and one of the most random and memorable person you would ever meet.
As a child, I wanted to be a pilot, doctor, scientist, actress, air hostess until my father said that my aim should be to become a good human being and that’s exactly what I am striving to be.
Hello, I am Cheeni (which literally means sugar in Urdu) and I am here to share my thoughts and experiences about anything and everything! From Cheeni Thoughts and Beyond…
Welcome to Cheeni Thoughts – A Lifestyle Blog!
I had boycotted bananas for a long time before I began training. On the strict orders of my instructor I started having a banana between lunch and training. Frankly speaking, I love them now owing to their numerous health benefits and NO! I am not even a monkey. Not yet…
Here is quick look at how beneficial bananas are for the human body and otherwise:
Source of Fibre
A single banana has about 3 grams of fibre. Dietary fibre helps in feeling fuller longer and also keep digestive processes running efficiently.
Satisfy your sweet tooth
An average banana has 110 calories and can fulfill your sweet tooth cravings without ruining your diet and training.
As per a research by Colorado State University, potassium is essential for a smooth nerve and muscle function. It also facilitates the balance of fluids in the body along with preventing painful cramps after rigorous exercise.
An average banana has approximately 400 mg potassium packed in it!

Mashed bananas are one of the most widely used baby foods especially when they are introduced to solid foods. They are easy to digest and a source of important nutrients when suffering from indigestion or a virus without straining the stomach too much.

Carbs are instant energy. Eating a bananas before or after a workout is the best way to feel energized!
Vitamin C & Vitamin B-6
An average banana has 10 mg of vitamin C which boosts immune system, cell health and improves and facilitates the absorption of other nutrients.
Our body needs vitamin B-6 to grow new cells. An average banana supplies 35% of daily B-6 requirement
Overcomes Depression & helps in reducing PMS symptoms
Bananas help combat depression due high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin ( the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter).
Moreover, it not only lifts your mood but also reduce PMS symptoms, as it regulates blood sugar and produces stress-relieving relaxation. You listening ladies?
