Ok the editor is still looking wrong but yesterday the post came out looking ok. It vanished overnight and I had to republish it from drafts just now, so um, editor continues to be buggy, but whatever, not a big deal. As for today, well, just as weird. I did a bunch of important things, most important among them going to a flat viewing which I’m hoping some good will come of in time. So for now I just continue to plod on and wait. And hope. And pray. I could really do with some stability right now.
TBS is starting to take better form, and I am glad that as of yet, I’ve managed to avoid too much cliche. I avoided a big trope I dislike a lot today which I am happy about, though the scene it appears in – or rather, doesn’t – is going to need a lot of polish and elbow grease. Still, it’s nice to turn out something a little different, even if it’s not exactly good yet.

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.
