Social Butterfly – The Climb #298

Wednesday 15th November 2017 Friends have been moaning me about our annual board games meetup.  Every year for the last few years since I got my own house I have my friends come over for the day and we play boardgames.  Each year there’s a different game.  The first year it was Shadows of Brimstone, [...]

Sword Diplomacy – The Climb #294

Saturday 11th November 2017 After moaning that I’m feeling a bit burned out you’d think that I’d take a weekend off the swordfighting.  That was the original plan and I’d arranged to hang out with a non-swordfighting friend today and just have a bit of a mini adventure.  But that fell through and then this [...]

I Fell Asleep – The Climb #248

Tuesday 26th September 2017 I went to a physio today about my back.  There’s part of me that’s amused by the fact that if you’d said 5 years ago I would be going to see a sports physio, I would have not believed you. Anyways, the good news is that it’s not a trapped nerve [...]

Turning Art Into A Profession – The Climb #231

Saturday 9th September 2017 Today was a gaming day.  Given I have to be up early on Sundays and that I’m often behind on sleep come the end of the week I like to try and get a lay in on Saturday.  It rarely goes beyond 9am no matter how hard I try. I got [...]

Time Is The Enemy – The Climb #230

Friday 8th September 2017 It’s tempting to think that whilst I’m sat here playing World of Warcraft and tracking friends who are chasing Hurricane Irma, that nothing is going on with the writing career. But the fact is that whilst I try and recharge, the manuscript is currently with my agent.  I got an update [...]

Levelling Up – The Climb #229

Thursday 7th September 2017 This evening was spent going over the new draft of my friend’s short story.  I realise this is why I don’t offer to beta novels, as just a 4000 word story took me about 4 hours, which is quicker than the last time I read it. Still, given how many hours [...]

Guild Master – The Climb #227

Tuesday 5th September 2017 So I appear to have a new World of Warcraft guild.  And by that I don’t mean I’ve joined a new guild. You see, I joined my guild back in the days of Wrath of the Lich King when Ulduar was the current raid.  We had some great times, including 9-manning [...]

Keeping Busy – The Climb #226

Monday 4th September 2017 The day job definitely seems to be the source of my current spate of stress.  I’m still not exactly sure why though. I actually wondered whether I should be starting another writing project just to take my mind off things.  Perhaps this stress is all generated by the fact I have [...]

Fighting Fitter – The Climb #225

Sunday 3rd September 2017 After a few days of mystery stress, I felt something approaching normal today.  I do feel like I’ve got a bit of a chill, so perhaps I have a touch of something.  It’s also possible that this is a result rather than a cause. Either way, whilst I’ve felt touches of [...]

Mystery Stress – The Climb #224

Saturday 2nd September 2017 I’ve been unable to figure out why but today I have been feeling so unbelievably stressed. The best way I can describe it is as if someone had turned the stress tap on and I couldn’t stop the flood.  What’s weird though, is that I’m unable to conclude what it is [...]
