“What experiences in life helped you grow the most?”
That’s quite a vague question, so as it’s late and I’m tired, you can have a vague answer: the ones where I had to stop and break them down after the fact. The moments that change us are the ones we choose to pay attention to.
I feel wretched. I’m just on autopilot right now and hoping tomorrow isn’t going to be as unpleasant as it feels like it will. I hate getting ill.

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.
