Good Editing Progress – The Climb #206

Tuesday 15th August 2017 It’s gone 1:30am and it looks like I’m going to have to leave finishing editing this consolidated chapter until tomorrow. I can’t complain though as progress, whilst slow, has been good.  I’m still being quite ruthless, and seem to be succeeding in my aim of trimming the wordcount.  I was helped [...]

Fightcamp Round 2 – The Climb #204

Sunday 13th August 2017 I hurt.  I really, really hurt. My left elbow is starting to turn black after my semi-final fight on Friday, and my right forearm is equally swollen.  My right arm is also feeling the aches from constantly holding a sword. But it’s not just the injuries from fighting.  I feel boiled [...]

A Swiss Multitool Of Death – The Climb #203

Saturday 12th August 2017 Today is possibly a little anti-climactic after yesterday. I’d long made the decision that today would be a rest day.  No matter how well or badly I did on Friday, I knew that competing in two competitions would mean I would be exhausted the day afterwards.  And so I had a [...]

Hidden Illnesses – The Climb #195

Friday 4th August 2017 Today was mostly spent at the hospital Since before Leggedon I’ve had medical issues that I’ve struggled to get doctors to take seriously.  Whilst I understand that everyone thinks their metabolism is wrong, I started piling on weight in my mid-20s around the same time as my Vtiligo started.  My food [...]

Gang Aft Agley – The Climb #194

Thursday 3rd August 2017 It’s fair to say that today has not been a good day. There are a number of reasons, and whilst none of them was enough to ruin my Thursday single-handedly, collectively they managed to do it. I found myself lacking motivation in the gym today.  Normally, I’ll moan and grumble, but [...]

The Post-Astolat Task List – The Climb #185

Tuesday 25th July 2017 I still feel shattered today.  I am awake and alert but my body has a weariness that goes down to my bones. As a result, I didn’t jump back into the edits tonight, instead catching up on Game of Thrones (I’m several seasons behind).  If Leggedon taught me anything, it’s to [...]

Deconstructing A Panic Attack – The Climb #165

Wednesday 5th July 2017 I suffered with anxiety for years.  It wouldn’t stop me doing things and I would later identify this as high-functioning anxiety.  It would mostly manifest itself in worries that would just build and build into massive panic attacks. I’m not sure when they first started.  It might have been when I [...]

Sucstress – The Climb #160

Friday 30th June 2017 I made up a word today. My friend (and author) Emma Newman was talking about that welcome stress you get when you’re doing something awesome but it’s still outside your comfort zone.  She was sure there’d be some German word for it, but I suggested we make one up. Sucstress I [...]

The Wartime General – The Climb #159

Thursday 29th June 2017 I think I burnt myself out a bit today.  I had a very active day where I was extremely focused but then never had any energy for the evening’s editing. The day job fun and games have continued today.  What started as demonstrating I had things under control within my department [...]

Feeling Glum For No Reason – The Climb #151

Wednesday 21st June 2017 I’m not sure why, but today was a bit of a glum day.  Everything is going super well at the moment, everything is progressing positively, I’m happy with what I’m doing and there’s no real major stress.  But I just felt like I wanted to climb into bed and give up [...]
