Today was a lot busier than I usually like my Saturdays to be, but not the worst by a long stretch. The evening was quite nice, getting to see a friend, have nice food, nice conversation. I even got to spend some time with my partner when I got home, but our hopes of recording the first part of a new project somewhat fell apart when I had to admit I’d been so busy I hadn’t actually written yet. And that’s a bit of a sore point, because when I can’t write early it does have these knock on problems. I know I’m still getting the hang of all this, but even so.
Happy Break Day either way. 11 years since an entirely fictional – oR wAs iT – event in a story no one’s ever going to read, but a cool milestone none the less.

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.
