Man all the days are long at the moment. I’m almost glad tomorrow’s lecture got cancelled in a way, as it means I have 2 hours of work, and then I can just rest for a bit. I am really seeing just how vital a rest stop is in the middle of the week now I can actually try out the whole “Weekend Wednesday” idea. Turns out that yes, if you do two days, one day off, another two days, and then two days off, it makes you much more productive. Heck even my wordcounts are doubling and I never take breaks from that. Over one thousand eight hundred words today, not including about 800+ words of lecture notes, and of course the 450~ words of journal, bullet journal and, well this.
You might notice though I am writing this at almost 11pm, and that is the one rub right now: I am shunting target a little too late in the day sometimes. Need to course correct that.

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.
