I am painfully close to finishing TBS. I actually legitimately think of I could just come up with the specific event in the finale, I could just finish the novel tonight, 5-6K words of it. But I don’t have it and that’s so frustrating it hurts. I need something, and I got nothing. I’m on the verge but can’t take that last leap because I have to stick the landing, and I can’t do that if I can’t see the land. Don’t have to sleep yet so I’m gonna do my first day of rowing at the new flat, and hope I get an epiphany. Wish me luck.

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.
