Premature to call today a turning point, but it’s 16:57 and I’ve gotten all my work, writing and chores for the day done. I can’t even remember the last time I pulled off that trio. I’m especially proud that I maintained my work without compromising on it to achieve the other two. But I have to keep this up, so three rules:
– Avoid my phone after 9:30pm
– Bed by 10:30 at the latest
– Kick off tomorrow maybe as early as 8am
No matter what though, it’s nice to have hope again.

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.
