Very long day. And yes, I’m writing this after the you-know-what announcement. I was over in Falmer doing some studying, so as you can imagine, I got less done than I would have hoped to. But it’s not every day you see history playing out in real time. It’s funny because I’ve seen several videos about ‘London Bridge has Fallen’ but it’s been surreal to see it actually play out. I kept one ear on the radio all evening, so I heard the RATS announcement as it went out.
Irony is I now need to go back and rewrite bits of TEL. I always knew there was a danger writing that one ahead of time but hey, that’s what the rewrite is for. Not right now though, as I had a really bad PoTS flare up at work and right now, all I need to do is go and sleep.

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.
