“What have you learned in your life about love?”
It’s a lot easier to find than you think, but that doesn’t dilute its significance. It takes many forms, and the word ‘love’ captures too many diverse experiences. Sometimes it’s romantic, quite often it’s not; ask any aro, though if you do don’t be disrespectful about it and listen. Listening is maybe the most powerful love language of all.
I didn’t make it in today. Legs betrayed me in the morning and the thought of trying to walk on them after what they pulled – namely muscles – wasn’t appealing. I am determined to make it in tomorrow, I hate this kind of disruption to my routine.

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.
