Abdominal pain sucks. Like, royally sucks. I feel like I’m barely holding together, but at least I can confirm, not you-know-what. Actually I’m pretty certain I know exactly what caused this, and as much as my gut is set on Project4, it sure seems like it wants to knife me for it. That isn’t hyperbole, I feel like there’s a knife being twisted in my abdomen and it is remarkably hard to stay composed.
Also I think at this point I’m resigned to the Horizon trilogy not coming out great in the first drafts. But that’s ok, I can fix that in edits or rewrite them or whatever they need. Point is, I don’t feel keen beating myself up for that when I’m feeling plenty beaten as it is.

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.
