No. of possible words cld have written if hadn't watched Big Brother: 15,000 (= ASIF 70,000 = ASIF only 10,000 more to go)
The MS and synopsis and writing CV posted to 2 agents yesterday, time to get on with it again. Feel like giving it a good run, bashing through to end only 25,000 words to go, at my best max per day ever @ 5,000 this COULD be done in 5 days, if I didn't watch Big Brother (etc etc). I do find these calculations work though. Getting back into it wasn't so great. I like listening to Chris Moyles to see what he's saying about The House & this morning he had Paul McKenna on as well which meant I had to have it playing all the way through, whilst trying to work in the music bits. I know, but it was a get back into it day after a week of rewriting for the submission so I wasn't going into any depths anywhere, as it was it took until 3pm to do 1,000 words. HOWever the Moyles show was great. Paul McKenna talked about his 'tapping technique' and did it live on air. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/chrismoyles/interviews/2006/
It's actually called Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, which I've been going on about to all my friends. It works and you can learn how to do it here http://www.emofree.com/. You can conquer any fears, phobias, smoking, stress, eating, in my case fear of book launch speech, by tapping on your acupuncture spots and saying a daft nursery rhyme. I had it done to me by a professional before my book launch for Book 2 (after being such a soft-voiced jibbering wreck at book launch 1) and so many people said after my thank you speech and reading how calm and confident I was. And I had none of that 'thank Christ that's over' feeling at the end of my spotlight moment, I was level calm throughout. Highly recommended.
Oh, McKenna also talked about his 'Paul McKenna Will Make You Thin' TV show http://www.skyone.co.uk/Mckenna/he claims a 71% success rate (as opposed, apparently, to a 9% success rates for diets). The four big rules which, he says, will make you lose weight are:
1. Eat when you're hungry
2. Eat what you want not what you should.
3. East consciously: people on diets think constantly about food so much that when they get it they don't chew properly. They don't think about food when they've got it, it's when they haven't go it. And this sets up a chain reaction.
4. When you think you're full - stop.
Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
