Just caught up p: This is why you start of doing something more stable while you write. Even if its fast food work, its still a more reliable source of income than writing when no one knows who you are. Then, if you manage to write a few successful things, or a major hit, you can quit your job and focus on writing. If things start going down hill, you have a lot more options. Teacher at a community college, guest lecturer, etc while you try keep writing. c1: Why even go to the college reunion? Its hard to believe that anything good would come of it in his current state. I guess this is the guy who's going to die? I'm kinda looking forward to it at this point. Unless the MC did something to him at school to warrant this kind of behavior. Even then, its kinda petty to kick someone when they're already so far down. c3: I wish I had a harder time believing that editors actually asked their writers to dumb things down to that degree. Aww, I was hoping the dead guy he got his cheat from would be the moron from earlier. c5: Not sure I like the fact that going from a strong woman who slaps to a weak one who begs makes something more likely to sell Guess I'll just have to assume that she was a villain character with no possibility of romantic feelings for the MC of his story. c7: I hope he doesn't forgive his father with a simple apology. Honestly, even after he says he forgives him, I kinda wish he'd cut ties. A fair weather father is even worse than a fair weather friend and there's no need for either in your life. c8: If this were a standard book, I'd be expecting him to get super high on his success, completely lose track of who he is and who he wants to be before finally returning to his past self, a wiser and happier person, with little to no mention of how he was going to make ends meet. As it is, I wonder where the author is going with all this. It doesn't seem like a story with a long term future really. c9: He just missed a perfect opportunity to tell the guy to go f' himself. c10: Nothing the guy said seemed that evil though? Yeah, it wasn't nice, but it wasn't malicious either. Did the MC really expect them to keep printing his books at a loss with no hint of profit on the horizon? If he was really concerned about the story, he could have just published the fifth book online. c12: I have a feeling that by the time his old publishing company is willing to accept those terms, he won't be c13: I wonder if the general manager will still have a job if he can't sign the MC? c14: Considering how traumatized he felt, I'm surprised he's willing to talk to them. c15: I hope this doesn't turn into a harem. c21: He should go to the professor's birthday. There will be plenty of other chances to brag to his fellow writers about how awesome he's become. c22: Yeah, in that situation, she should call security. He should have tried to write something creative with the pen, or possibly do some artwork. He gave up way too quickly, without really even trying. I wonder if Myunghoon will break into his home and find that note he just wrote to himself about his new powers. c24: So why not offer to publish what he's writing for the contest? Its not like they only publish martial arts novels after all. Or have him start work after the contest and a nice vacation. His usual pace was a book a month, so as long as they don't just shove everything out as soon as he gives it to them, the readers won't even notice the gap. c27: Wow, how can he even look himself in the face after bragging about the work of his ghost writer? He should run for office. c29: I kinda expected the MC to take the grand prize and a runner up prize with his Child of the 90's and the story about his sister. This chapter really needs a bit of proofreading... c30: Why would they announce the winner first? Its common sense at these things that the winner comes last so that people will be willing to listen to the non-winners' speeches. I was really hoping A Dumb Woman wasn't his story about his sister. Its such an insulting thing to do to someone who has given up so much for you :/ @Parth37955 can you link this to the series page?
