On mobile again, so WordPress only says “Start writing…” and well, it – she? Idk imma say mine is she – she has a point. But I don’t feel too dispirited there because I went to a lovely Hanaukamus party and it was full of writers, and I had an epiphany. I realised I do have a low-stakes story I can write, and it’s been waiting for me all this time. I’ll give you a clue: it’s the oldest ‘I should write this’ topic on this blog, by quite some way, not yet written.
I am at a bus stop and I cannot feel anything in my hands but pain. All ethics and legitimate points aside, train strikes suck.

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.
