It’s just a shame in a way that 3Y1K falls on day 1,097. Like yes I know, I don’t want to big up the day, and I’m not, lordy I will be booking it off but I just need a rest right now. But still the symmetry would have been nice. I am looking on target to finish writing TBS by then, and even have a reasonable idea how the last two chapters are going to play out, even if – I won’t lie – huge crucial chunks are still missing. I gotta say it’s probably not going to be the ending in the finished book, but it’ll be an ending. That’s important to have, because you can’t start to improve a thing until you have objective content to compare it to.
I just hope I get to bed sooner tomorrow. All these post-11pm days, while caused by ill health, are sure not helping me overcome said ill health.

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.
