The Eye Of The Hurricane – The Climb #261

Monday 9th October 2017 I feel a bit like I’m in the eye of a hurricane at the moment. Around me, everything is chaos.  There’s the eternal stress of worrying about the book (a feeling that I never feel will change, only the book I’m stressing about).  Then there’s upcoming tournaments and trying to pull [...]

OMG, I’m ill AGAIN – The Climb #260

Sunday 9th October 2017 For someone who never gets ill, I seem to be doing a bad job of avoiding bugs in 2017.  I woke this morning to find that my throat had swollen up and I’d come down with a bit of a fever.  This is like the second time I’ve been ill this [...]

How To Get Started – The Climb #259

Saturday 7th October 2017 I had just one task to do today:  get a vlog done! With my trip to Romania looming, I want to get back in the habit of vlogging so I can capture what looks to be an amazing trip. But I fell foul of a mistake a lot of content creators [...]

Evolution – The Climb #258

Friday 6th October 2017 I’ve never believed in God.  Nor do I believe in fate.  I do, however, believe the universe gives you signs from time to time. In truth this is just your subconscious drawing meaning from your day, finding parallels that justify a position you probably have already unknowingly concluded.  But I’m a [...]

The Drudgery – The Climb #257

Thursday 5th October 2017 I’ve been a bit all over the place the last few weeks.  The Climb has been late going up and if I’m honest I’m feeling a little frustrated with progress on just about everything. Publishing moves glacially slow.  Books are big complex things and so they take time to get right, [...]

A Long And Busy Day – The Climb #256

Wednesday 4th October 2017 Today was a ridiculously busy day that left me completely exhausted. I was up early this morning to go to the gym.  Given I was still knackered after yesterday’s busy day, I was feeling tired before I even got there.  I did some work to get my glutes activating and left [...]

Running Late For Physio – The Climb #255

Tuesday 3rd October 2017 Today has been a very busy day.  I had to be up early to go back to physio… and of course, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. I felt I gave myself enough time, but for some reason getting showered and dressed always takes me more time that I [...]

Hard Work Takes Over When Talent Runs Out – The Climb #254

Monday 2nd October 2017 It says a lot about today when the best thing about it was being told just how much you sucked. A lot of stresses were bringing my mood low today.  I fully expect the next couple of weeks to be similar.  Everything is great and I know that in a couple [...]

Here We Go Again – The Climb #253

Sunday 1st October 2017 So my September break is now over and tonight I’ve dived back into book 2 to start work on the second draft. In many ways, this forced break has been a bit torturous.  Sometimes I think I need a stress to keep my mind off other stresses, and without a book [...]

Realistic Dreams & Delusional Evidence – The Climb #252

Saturday 30th September 2017 So every writer dreams of their book being big.  You’ve invested so much time into it that it becomes like a child.  You love it unconditionally despite the flaws other people can see in it.  And as a result, it’s hard not to think it the most perfect book in the [...]
