Phew! It is done! I've signed a contract! I'm writing a book!

I'll be streaming the writing for as long as it seems good and interesting to do so. I'll be starting in January.

New Year's resolution: write a book.

@JordiGH Like the topics. One word of advice is "how to prove it" as a chapter title might be troublesome, given:

@j I was aware of that book, but I thought it was a second book written by Pólya and I intended to reference Pólya. Maybe I should just call it "How To Solve It" so it's directly a reference to Pólya.

@JordiGH "Prove it, bitch" doesn't warrant consideration? /s

But in all seriousness, for consistency with the rest of your chapters, just something like "Proofs" or "Proving it", would probably work :)

@ColinTheMathmo @j Ehhhhhh, I really want the Pólya reference. Maybe, "How to Maths It".
