Well, today went off script. My strategy for weekend has been to pick up my laptop and write target from bed. Well, today I woke up, picked up the laptop, and realised that I made a grave error at some point yesterday. See, I powered it on, and saw the dreaded grey jagged lines and rainbow pixels that mean one thing: this screen is DEAD. Did I step on it? Drop it? I don’t remember but, whatever happened it’s unfortunate, but I can turn it into a desktop unit.
The thing is, I haven’t set up my notebook with Linux, and so, my routine fell apart. I actually had a lovely day with friends and I don’t need to sleep any time soon, but it sucks to lose the routine. Still, I’ll fix it.

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.
