Not my earliest weekday post of late, in part because my energy levels today were awful. When I’m like that, it’s harder to chip away at target in the gaps between tasks, but I still managed pre-5pm target with time to spare. 15 minutes to be exact. The annoying part is my low energy is proving hard to pin down, though I am still probably more exhausted than I realise. Even a week in I’m not used to the new routine.
Writing later in the afternoon isn’t a problem today, but it might be tomorrow. I’m going to Mana and I’d like both not to have target looming over me and not to be exhausted for that. So I guess tonight I need to chill as best I can. I’m thinking Stardew maybe. It’s that or passing out on the sofa.

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.
