After three days of being brain-melted, I think, touch wood, that I am ok now. Going back into the office in either case, which I think is going to help a lot. And I am more or less at the midpoint of HOF now, within a chapter at least. There’s a lot I think I can cut now, and really like all the stories it’s gonna get an all-over facelift, but I’m in a better place with it now.
Sorry for all the half-baked posts of late. Here’s hoping things calm down now so I can get back to substantive writing and posting again.

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.
