This has been a tough week. I’m going to go to bed soon but I’m stressed out, and it’s because I’m still fatigued. That’s a bad sign given I took a whole week plus of holiday. I need to get my head on straight, and I also need to start writing earlier. I’ll sort this out but man, this year has been rough.
TWR is almost at 60K, which is pretty sweet, but it’s been a slow book to write. I hope that TWO is a little more speedy. It’s ok to take time, but I have a need to get out as many stories as I can. Though I gotta say, that’s a great problem to have.

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.
