It’s less of a big deal when I hit target at 11pm on Saturday, because I can still pull things around on Sunday, and I often prioritise trying to relax. I say trying, because I often fail at that. I’ll do nothing for most of the day, but I’ll feel on edge from that too. Well, today I succeeded. I just played Stardew, read IT for like the dozenth time, and spent a lot of the day by myself in social battery recharge mode. And I think I need to do this more often. Not every Saturday, I do like to go out and socialise, but I needed a me day so bad, and haven’t made time for one in weeks it feels like.
So tomorrow I may be hitting target with a first, but not with an entirely new-to-me style of writing. In fact, it’s what I started by writing, all those years ago. I’m coming back to the world of scripts. But, not as you might think…

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.
