Back in the office tomorrow. I’m brining a kettle, as I do not want to have to work from home just to have a damn coffee. Can you tell I’m bitter? I put my double espressos and black coffees to shame. But whatever, fresh start, and yes I’ve written late so I won’t be on a full night’s sleep, but again, what can you do? Pick myself up, carry on with civility, and keep my eyes on the prize: 1K1K, another novel in the bank, and all the stories to come. I have reason for optimism right now, and I want to focus on that. And yes, tomorrow I will be booking the 22nd off. Wednesday would make more sense of course but, well, I didn’t start 1K on 26/09/18, and I can’t just delete a day so, that’s day 1,000. And, that’s when I launch the next chapter, in a manner of speaking.
Stay tuned my imaginary readers.

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.
