Wow today was awful. For real, today was terribad on so many levels. Hate to be cryptic but natually I can’t exactly detail why that was, but I can in an odd twist talk about two ways it was more positive. The first, is I am very lucky to have such a strong support network of friends and family around me. When I have days like this, I never feel I have to face it all by myself. And the second, is that the cue cards arrived. And they are perfect. They’re Magic card sized, so I can only fit a little on each, and that works. I want to keep scene pitches to just that: a pitch. It also means I can sleeve them to keep stuff from rubbing off, and best of all? I now have drywipe Magic tokens. Win-freaking-win.
For real though, otherwise, today was garbage.

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.
