Yeah, so this morning I was 69.2kg. Which is okay, but it's not my goal of sub-69. Today I completely fucked up and had a jacket potato with beans for lunch (600?) and a bit of lamb curry for dinner (who. knows.) and then a ton of coffee with milk (150, at least). So yeah, fuck tits. No loss tomorrow obviously.

On the plus side, I've written 9800 words of my book which means I'm about 10% of the way - I'm aiming for 90,000 to 100,000 words. I've also been debating the merits of submitting a few chapters to some literary agents... Like I don't think I want to actually use an agent, cuz why should people take my money, BUT maybe just to get some feedback on whether it's any good. I dunno... has anyone here written/published a book? 

I'm driven to finish it sooner rather than later. 

Peace & Fiction

It's close to sub 69 though! And you still didn't have much, so you may be under tomorrow.

No book advice (sorry!) but would be interested in reading about how this adventure progresses in getting published.

i've studied literature for four years and did very well-I could read a bit of it for you, if you'd like.

i still don't know how a jacket potato with beans is nice. i mean i believe it's quite popular in the UK for some reason or another. curries = delicious. jacket potato with beans = ?? no clue.

fucktits is the best thing i've ever heard.

"cuz why should people take my money," perfect.

i write consistently. all the time. yet i'm bollocks at writing. i'd read it for you if you like, but be warned that i don't have any true experience, love.

My neighbor self-published his book, sans agent, and even though I'm pretty sure it's not like a famous book, I know it was on a best-selling list in my city (Milwauakee) for like over a month... and his book was nonfiction and not particularly interesting. Yours sounds like it might actually do what books are supposed to do and, like, captivate an audience, lol, so maybe if you make the initial investment to self-publish your book will sell itself if it's as interesting as it seems (well, what I can tell from the details you've shared so far) <3
