I’m still not ok, but I’m writing this at 13:42 so I’m a heck of a lot better off than I was yesterday, even if only just. Having the motivation of not wanting to sleep through Christmas turns out to be a heck of a motivator. I’m feeling wretched and poorly, and today’s portion of HOR was awful, but it was writing and all writing counts. ‘Awful’ is over stating it but I haven’t been doing my best work of late in general. If you think these posts are rambling you should see some of those later chapters.
I think I’ll play some Stardew. Maybe some games with friends later. I’m honestly not sure. I have some Christmas cards I’m meant to be dropping off but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. Funny, as it’s barely a 40 minute round trip, and I could do it with ease if I didn’t feel so bleh. I just hope people don’t mind the cards being late.

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.
