Today went catastrophically wrong, but I mean, it’s a Thursday what do you expect. The joys of a sudden health issue making working from home the only practical option, and the internet being so sporadic all day I built half the markbooks standing in the street. Would I have been better off going in? Yes, yes I would, and I am cross. But, I did at least manage to write early right? Right? Ha, ha ha, ha, no. No of course not. At least the diet is in tact so – oh crap. So yeah it all kinda went off the cliff. Internet still hasn’t been switched on even now, and tomorrow my mobile will turn off so, I hope the internet turns on today.
And yet, for all that, while my mood was still shaky, I have actually been ok. And I’m still enjoying writing HOR. It’ll all work out. Bleh…

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.
