I said goodbye to the old flat today. It was a weird experience, one I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about given that’s where all of this began. I loved that flat, and lived there for just shy of 900 days. Now I move into a whole new chapter if my life, and I feel both ready for that challenge, and a bit nervous too. Most of all though, I’m just tired. It’s been a long month, and was pretty much 2020 month 13. But I feel, good. I came out the other side.
February will mark the 2 year anniversary of this blog, and I think I need to take a serious look at how I use this site going forwards. I’ll still blog, this is far too useful not to, but I’m going to need to remove all the WattPad links, and have a think about building a more professional portfolio. But all that to come, for now, sleep.

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.
