I made an amendment to my character sheet today, broadening one of my +3XP headers. That was I will admit, a change that immediately saw me earn those points for today, but screw it, because I want to be doing this more: I wrote a poem. I may create a section on here for poems and such in time, though I’ll need a few more before I feel it’s a worthwhile thing to do. For now, imma keep things informal and leave it be. But today was good, even after leaving my phone at work last night. That was still disruptive though, so I kinda forgot something else.
Yesterday, I hit 1,000 days in a row on this blog. Neat.

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.
