Gotta say, I don’t much feel up to doing a prompt today. I guess it comes as no surprise to you if you’ve read between the lines – and at times the lines themselves – that I’m not doing so well right now. That slow mental decline hit a nosedive for a few reasons today, and man, this is the sort of day that if I didn’t have my writing, might well kill my university run in one fell swoop. Maybe not, it’s hard to know. All I do know is thanks to 1K, I can keep my head above water. I might not be in the best way, but I’ll get through the low times, in time. Sorry for the short and vague post. I’ll make it up to you at some point.

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. View all posts by Sam Shuttleworth
