Turning Up – The Climb #36

Sunday 26th February 2017 Today has been fuelled by Monster energy drinks. I set my alarm early this morning so I woke up in time to go to swordfighting training.  I was very tempted to give it a miss.  After all, it’s not like I ever miss training when loads of other people do. But [...]

Hungover Saturday – The Climb #35

Saturday 25th February 2017 I’m not really a great drinker any more. I’d go out and get pissed with my mates when I was in my 20's but as I’ve got older, and especially in the last year when I’ve been eating and drinking healthy, I probably have a drink once a month. Friday night… [...]

Fireball Friday – The Climb #34

Friday 24th February 2017 Today the day job robbed me of my mental energy. I spent most of Friday in the day job doing some training with Microsoft.  It was a great, intense 1-on-1 session but I need to write up the notes to ensure the training goes in and I can share the knowledge [...]

Blown Away – The Climb #33

Thursday 23rd February 2017 Today was the day of the infamous Storm Doris.  I was therefore a little disappointed to step out this morning to collect the bin I’d put out for the binmen to find it still standing upright.  Someone told me to be careful because of the winds.  I raised an eyebrow at this. [...]

Honorary Canadian – The Climb #32

Wednesday 22nd February 2017 Today there was a lot of needless day job stress, which annoys me, because it’s not needed and my stomach felt like glass as a result for the rest of the day. It’s been odd in other ways.  As I went into the office a colleague asked me how I was. [...]

An Important Milestone – The Climb #31

Tuesday 21st February 2017 Today’s been an interesting day. The most important thing is that this draft of the novel has reached an important stage.  I got a lot of writing done tonight.  This scene, which the first part felt like wading through treacle, opened up and became an easy write.  This might be because [...]

Rough & Tumblrs – The Climb #29

Sunday 19th February 2017 In which I discover that if I fight for 2 solid hours and dehydrate, my face ends up looking like a prune! Today’s been a good day. I’ve come to the conclusion that my potential reader-base is on Tumblr and I need to create one.  But just as silly personal content [...]

Progress Is Progress Is Progress – The Climb #28

Saturday 18th February 2017 Given how last week I slept in until the afternoon and how knackered I was feeling after this past week, I’d not planned to accomplish much on Saturday.  However, I woke at 9am (which wasn’t that late given how late I’d gone to bed) and despite trying to get back to [...]
