Last night I did something I haven’t done in years, not even at election time. As of writing this, I have been awake for a day and a half straight. That’s not something I ever do under normal circumstances, but I felt it required to pull off the system reset I’ve so badly needed. I’m off to bed, and quietly confident I’ll sleep much better tonight than I have of late. I will have my routine back.

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. View all posts by Sam Shuttleworth
