The Supermarket Guy 4 fails to win award at book contest.

Little while ago, I entered Part 4 of my series into a book award contest. If it did really well, or even finished within the top 10, I would have been very pleased. It did not win any awards. It sort of descended my fervor for writing. Part 5 is probably 25 % complete, but when looking at the results of years of work, and not really cracking any true following or interest among my works, it is as if a heavy thousand pound anchor of lead has been attached to my pencil, and I cannot bear myself to write any longer.

Ok. Maybe half of that up there is not true. The latter. I met a guy I used to work with at the local market here, and he has started to write books. Maybe I had something to do with it, as I told him how easy it was to do, such a long time ago. Maybe he would have found his way without me, but I still think when when talked he had a strong link to what I was doing, and in spirit felt he could do the same.

My books on Goodreads had great reviews in the past month. Two 5 on …

The Supermarket Guy 5's progress report

The Supermarket Guy 5 is going very well. The main crux of the beginning chapters of the book is complete. Of course, the 'crux', the most pivotal point, most important point, is at the first of the book. It sometimes cannot be at the 2/3 rds or 3/4 length of the book. The 'crux' has mass, it has importance, and is the very vitality of the whole series. Nonetheless, it is at the beginning. Something so improbable that it could not have happened without some sort of luck or divine intervention.

It somewhat parallels how the "Star Wars" series started from the later parts, and the front parts came later in time. We remember how the "Dumb and Dumber" franchise went back to their high school days, and perhaps how successful the story becomes determines maybe how far back you can go with that to stretch the story out to make it all link together to your later series.

Part 5, not sure if a Part 6 would fit in between Part 1 and Part 5, but it is possible…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…

The Supermarket Guy V coming along very well!

The Supermarket Guy V is coming along very well. The first few pages are solid, and it takes in a time back before the main character was born, near the time close to the late 70s. No internet, no color TV in his house, and allot of TV dinners. A true nuclear family!

The cover is nearly drawn out. Have to rearrange and change a few things, but things are working well on that front too. New characters are drawn into the novel, as well as a few old. Hoping this novel will focus more on the little simplicities of life that we often forget, and situations and things that are still ongoing today.

Maybe will be able to print in the fall, just a cheaper E book version...

Got to go, business calls.

Part 4 given superb accolades by Readers Review!

The 5.2 Honko Motor is installed in Grannies Chair lift from Hell!

Famous and well liked in the area Grandma Ponkatup winced at her two grandsons "You hook up that 5.92 L Honko motor to my chairlift, you better make sure it makes the California Emission standards! If not, you guys will have to pay to hook a metal flex pipe from its muffler into the old coal mine tunnel not so far from our swish cellar!"

Anissohi laughed and comforted his grandma with a big hug "Do not worry, Grandma. When that old Honko diesel motor chugs down the stairway, it will only idle, as the alternator will charge its 24 volt battery! You can feel assured by the violent seat vibrations that will occur when that rudely tuned motor vibrates you into a coma!"

Fruknuts sighed "Stop toying with grannie, and get your story straight! We will hook up the exhaust to the toilet outlet. From there, it will go under the sewer field bed right under her cucumbers. She will have so many she will have to hire a few green environmentalors to harvest em! Then they wil…

Put the 5.92 L Honko motor on Grandma's chair lift!

Grandma Ponkotup whizzed and whirred down the stairs in her electric chairlift like it was a magic carpet ride... Until, her electronic chair ran over her son Fruknuts tube of permethrin lotion for his crabs...

The stuff just squirted all out, and some got caught in between the banged up enclosure over the electric motor and gave Grannie a good shock...

So much of a shock, that she fell off the chair and tumbled and hurled down the stairs shouting "That last lobster is mine, that last lobster is mine, get your grubby hands off of it.. Get your grubby hands off of it now mister!"

Reviving those good ole days, of when her husband was alive... How he would try to out stage her in the county lobster cracking festival, all for to win a free deworming at the local detox center in the downtown city main street.

Fruknuts ran over and cried "My crabs, now I'll never get rid of em..."

Anissohi, his adopted brother screamed as he put a helium balloon up his Grannies mout…
