Friday JohnKu – AKA – Hump Day

Friday rooster


Another week has gone by. I don’t know about you, but these puppies are really going fast. It seems like yesterday that I was putting together last week’s JohnKu. I think it is because I’m busy as hell.

I have received some feedback from my Beta readers and I must say they have been pretty uniform in pointing out some need for additional attention to elements of my next John Cannon story. The title is Our Justice and will be the last in the trilogy. I will need to get busy and start before all the feedback is all in since I have promised my editor something by April. (Lucky I didn’t give a date)

I will be promoting His Revenge Kindle version for $0.99 starting on March 3rd through March 6th.

Today’s JohnKu talks about being busy. I hope you enjoy it.

Busy by John W. Howell

As the days fly by,

The choices made impact time. . .

Till there is no more.


  1. TGIF, John! This Johnku has such a profound ring. It is certainly true.
    It’s great that the various feedback seems to be consistent. That way you don’t have to wonder whether it’s “right.” Best wishes in sorting everything out.
    I’m totally relating to that chicken, especially this week. (Oh and by the way… that SATX house was not “the one” — still hunting.) Mega hugs!

    1. Happy Friday to you (I had better stop singing. Might break a window or two.) Yes stay on the hunt. I’m sure something will work out. I could not resist the chicken pic. It looked how I felt. HUGS

  2. Happy Friday, John! You’re not kidding…can you believe we’re almost at the end of February?
    Love the Johnku and the photo…that’s kind of how I feel by Friday. πŸ™‚

    1. I know right? What happened to January? πŸ˜€

  3. Enjoy the weekend. It’s not just you with time going quickly. 2016 seems determined to sprint to the end. Maybe because so many things are going on in the world, so our minds just want to get it all over with. At least mine does.

    1. I get the same sense. Thanks for the confirmation.

  4. Happy Friday, John! You’ve been the best kind of busy πŸ™‚

    1. So true Marie. When I retired from business I hd these visions of having all the time in the world to do what I wanted. Ha. I can’t get everything done and wonder how I had time to work. Happy Friday.

      1. Ah, the writing life πŸ™‚

      2. grand isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

  5. That rooster is exactly what I look like at the minute. Goodness.

    1. Gotta comb the hair

  6. Good words about time … and good luck moving ahead on the next novel!

    1. Thanks Frank. I was even late to your post yesterday.

  7. Yeah, I feel like that rooster lately too. Life keeps getting in the way of things I want to accomplish. It eventually all gets done though. I don’t have to answer to a publisher, and set the deadlines myself. Sometimes I wonder if that is the wrong attitude, but it’s reality right now. I volunteer for any promotional stuff you want to do during your sale, or next release.

    1. Thanks Craig. My release won’t be until June. The promo starts March 3rd Reblog would be super.

  8. Love that picture! πŸ˜‰

  9. Fabulous picture, John — really conveys your message! You know, some weeks are like this, busy and all. But that’s much better than sitting around being bored, right? Best wishes for success with your promo!!

    1. So true Debbie. Have a good weekend as well

  10. I’ve spent about six months looking like that chicken. Giggle. I’ve missed these Friday poems. This one is perfect. (I think its great, you know, you being busy and all.) Enjoy your weekend, John.

    1. You too Audrey. πŸ™‚

  11. Love the rooster pic. I know that feeling from my working life. πŸ˜€
    Busy-busy. Oh my. Your JohnKu is perfect. Happy beginning to the weekend. πŸ˜‰

  12. Apt Johnku John. The weeks sure do fly by. Enjoy the margarita. Hope the promotion goes well. Is it a Kindle Countdown promotion?

    1. Yes it is. I only have one promo price though.

  13. This was beautiful and poignant, John.
    Thank you.
