Yesterday I ended up doing 500 words – well, 499 words – of bio for the blog, and decided to count that. I did 750 words of Volcano gross, which I think comes under at net as I cut a little too. Given so far the chapters are coming in at 1,200 over their alloted totals that’s no bad thing.
Today I dropped £11.50 (ouch) and Spectrum is being printed up in all its awful glory. I’m going to cover this copy in as much ink as possible as I rip 22 year old me to shreds. But I’m optimistic. There’s a good story in there somewhere.
Goal for today is another 1k of Volcano typed. I will start on Spectrum when I’ve done enough autiting but that’s going to take awhile; would be optimistic to say it will take the weekend.

I’m Sam, and I live to write. I spent most of the first 8 years of my adulthood trying to balance writing with a large amount of crap in my personal life, until towards the end of 2018 I threw everything out and started afresh with just my writing. I built the new me around one goal: I have to write at least 1,000 words a day. I called this goal 1K, and it changed my life. So long as I write a thousand words a day, the day is a success, and atop that I've managed over time to build the life I wanted all those years.
My greatest flaws as a writer is I still use too many adjectives, adverbs, connectives as openers, accidental passive voice and I don't force my work down people's throats enough on pain of extreme and unusual torture. My greatest strength is I know my greatest flaws and I'm working on them.
