So I failed to wrote earlier. Woo. I knew in my heart I would but I’m still cross about it. There is no reason at 2pm I couldn’t have just, jumped into it. Why not? It’s not hard, or I wouldn’t have chained 858 days of it. It’s done now but yikes I really need to prioritise AM targets. If I get back to that I might have a shot at a workable routine outside work, and probably faster efficiency in work too.
On the bright side, I have been working through TUS and it’s nearly ready for some beta reading, which is going to I hope increase my confidence in that book. I still love TUS but as I write and learn more, the flaws in my first salvageable story become more stark. Fixable, but stark. I just hope that the red pen is all stuff that lifts it to match things like WHT in my confidence levels. But of course, WHT likely has as many gremlins lurking in its shadows…

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.
