ESCG is a great employer, and when it comes to the health and safety support that has become clear yet again. When I told them about my diagnosis, I got a next day desk assessment, and I now have a footrest, arm supports on the desk and a new supportive chair on the way. That means whether I end up full time in the office or in part of the week, I will be able to sit with minimised pain and more focus.
My head right now is not in the best place. That’s not super surprising after the long hours volunteering I did over the weekend. Got even more volunteering I have to do after work too, so the timing is pretty awful. But at least I got my writing done early in the day.

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.
