I’ve been working all day today. There’s just too much in my work queue right now to take Sunday off. It’s a shame but I’d rather not fall too far behind, given I still have a good 60 emails to clear. But I’m still feeling pretty good, especially as I managed to get another thousand works in the bank that were a little dicey.
I was always gonna do a thousand words, bit I hit a roadblock that meant I almost had to leapfrog the end of the chapter because I was too stuck to figure out the route. In the end, it just took getting up, walking away, relaxing and coming back fresh a little later. I’ve got a few more tasks to do before I sleep, so I’ll be knackered tomorrow, but it won’t stay like this.

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.
