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.
