Today went, less well. I got a lot done which is good, and I also managed to write a pretty decent scene for TBS, as well as setting up the grand finale. All well and good too, but there’s a catch, and well, it’s not a small one: I burned out hard today. There was a point where I just, snapped, and while I didn’t mess up too bad by my old standards, I still feel wretched about snapping at a loved one, and also for ordering in because I just wanted to feel better. I should be better than that. I keep telling myself it’s the moving stress, but, well I hope that’s all it is. I guess we’ll see after the move, right?

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. View all posts by Sam Shuttleworth
