The Supermarket Guy V writing notes.

The Supermarket Guy V will take a few serious notes now and then. A book cannot be completely built on humor, but it highly will be. I am 1/3 rd finished, and have a long journey to go in completing it. Hope finding time to sit back, and write will come to me soon enough. I always think I got free time coming around the corner, then something happens to jam me up again.

The humor is spectacular and flowing so far. It takes a sharp turn in heading back in the same format as Part 1 of The Supermarket Guy, where it is based mostly on family humor. There is no race to save the hero's supermarket franchise from destruction, no race to save the population from nuclear destruction, and no race to save the world from a tyrannical world domination and eventual destructive type scenario. Part 5 goes back to Part 1, a simple format, dealing with personal relationships and personal problems. Bullying is always a feature in most of any book out there, and this one presents itself in many forms.

I am writing approximately 3 pages a night, if the time permits. It is frustrating when ideas come to mind, but cannot get to the computer in time to type them down. Not sure if this one will be ready for the fall, as there are no time constraints on my work. There is no one knocking on the door for them, there is no pressure for to finish fast. Finishing fast sometimes produces a terrible product, and I found doing several revisions of my work enhances the edges and body by 20 to 25 %. If I had a deadline, it would be rushed, it would be probably ok and do well like the others, but there would be a dissatisfaction about it... I could even go back, and open up all parts of 1, 2, 3 and 4 and insert more material that could truly enhance the story. Part 1, especially, I felt I could really change to increase the humor factor. But, what is done is done for now....

Have a safe and Happy Halloween... Maybe the Reasons for the color change on my blog...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
