" After all, he figured, tomorrow would be like
today and today was like yesterday, nothing was due to change from
day to day, so why be in a hurry for the day you were in to end."
So now back to the show "Superstore". In the pilot the floor manager is talking to the new hire. She is expressing her feelings about working at 'Cloud 9' for as long as she has. The new hire is a young good looking man that she is talking to. She then makes a statement about her lot in life that is nearly exactly as Mark's line above.
So could it be chance? Doubtful, I spent a lot of time writing that simple phrase. I wanted it to be unique and sound like me, the real me. I achieved that. The statement as a whole is uniquely tied to my way of thinking. It would be great odds for two writers to come that close to writing a statement that unique.
'The Boy in The Wood" has sold over 3,000 copies, I do not know who has bought and read it, but I do know since my lines are being lifted from it and used on this new show someone there has. The book was published almost 2 years ago now, enough time.
So, do I want anything from them plagiarizing my book?
They are a "Superstore", if you are going to lift lines from my book at least set up a display of my books in the store as if they are for sale so the camera can capture them now and again, and leave the display up throughout the show for all to see. A real floor display, my real books, using DeWayne Watts. It is the least they can do if I am ghost writing some lines.
It does cause some negative feelings to have copyrighted material stolen.
