Friday JohnKu – AKA TGIF


Funny Friday

Another week has bit the dust. (wait, maybe that should be bitten the dust. Oh well) I hope it was a good one.  I made some progress on the latest WIP and am feeling good about the story. I was going to jump into the edited version of Circumstances of Childhood but ran out of time. I don’t have much new information on the Amazon Marketing Service. The impressions are huge but the clicks are few. I don’t have a handle on how to turn impressions into clicks and clicks into sales. I have launched the latest with over 800 key words. This has helped the impressions but little else. The campaign runs until June 16th so I’m going to let it ride.

Today’s JohnKu  talks about wanting to do one thing and then doing another. I hope you all have a wonderful week.

What Happened? by John W. Howell

The plan for today,

Was doing work over there. . .

Why am I still here?


  1. I can so relate to your JohnKu. Love the sign! Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day Weekend, John!

    1. You as well., Jill. Thank you. 🙂

  2. Really funny, John. I wonder if the guy at the beginning was getting pulled over by the highway patrol. That would do it. 😀 — Suzanne

    1. I think so. Thanks, Suzanne. 🙂

  3. This reminds me that I have an Amazon ad in action. Sort of. Not seeing any signs of it doing more than costing me money. Wonder if some genres are more competitive than others. I see tons of fantasy, but have yet to run into my own ad like when I first tried it. Have a fun weekend and hope your ad picks up.

    1. The Amazon mystery gets deeper and deeper. I’m not sure I’ll ever get it solved.

      1. You will. Then they’ll change the rules.

  4. Love the sign, but if you are suppose to be over there – what ARE you doing here?

    1. I know right? Story of my life. have a super weekend, GP.

      1. You know the old saying – “When my ship comes in; I’ll be at the airport!” That’s the story of my life!! 🙂

      2. ha ha ha. 😀

    What a great JohnKu! I so relate! Love the sign…is it local? 🙂

    1. I found the sign on Google. It seemed appropriate for Friday. 😀 Thanks, Gwen

  6. Love the sign – so funny! I would say you had a good week.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. Seemed so. 🙂

  7. Perfect JohnKu. It happens to me all the time.
    Enjoy the nice long weekend, John, and congrats on the progress you’re making on the WIP. I need to pay some attention to mine! 🙂

    1. Of course, then the editing comes to a halt. Damn why can’t there be two of me. Wait! I wouldn’t wish that on anybody. 😀

      1. Heehee/ I’m sure that would be handful 🙂

  8. Oh my goodness, John. You just wrote my life’s story in those few short words! 🙂

    1. Ha ha ha. It was an autobiography. Glad you could relate. 😀

  9. Happy Friday, John! 🙂

    1. Happy Friday to you, Natalie. 🙂

  10. Guess we’ve all been there, John. Great way to express it! Happy Friday to you!

    1. Thanks, Debbie. Have a super weekend.

  11. Love the opening sign – thought maybe someone would get a Molson out of it. Congrats on the productive week, good sir! When I think about all the effort it takes to set up that Amazon Marketing gig, I am discouraged from trying it again. That’s self-defeating though… sigh.

    1. I haven’t cracked the code yet, but will keep trying.

      1. I should get cracking on that too.

  12. Lord have mercy, I really do feel that Johnku! Well done, my friend. TGIF hugs and happy weekend.

    1. Thank you, Teagan. I’m always wondering myself. Hugs

  13. Another apt Johnku. Huge impressions and few clicks seems to be the norm with these things. Never mind I am sure we will get there in the end. Have a good weekend.

  14. Your meme is perfect. Suppose I can use it for the welcome I have to give at a banquet tomorrow night? It is for high school alumni..seems fitting. 🤓
    Enjoy your weekend, John.

  15. I know the feeling , John. When it comes, just walk away to something else—something fun and restful for a change.

    1. Yes, Micki. That’s the way.

  16. I wander off in another direction all the time – making lists has helped. Good luck with Amazon, John!

    1. My kind of person. Thanks, Teri

    1. Thank you, Traci
