I’ve decided to submit my book to an agent to see if they pick it up. I can’t be bothered with the stress of submitting it to publishers myself, if someone who does that for a living can do that for me it’ll just make my life easier. And sending it to an agent and getting it rejected once is a lot easier than sending it to dozens of publishers and getting it rejected over and over again.

Eternal pessimist, I. All I can see when I look at the book is what I’ll do differently next time.
