Whatever It Takes – The Climb #153

23rd June 2017 I worked on the novel until gone 3:30am today. Part of the reason is that I could.  I don’t have the day job tomorrow so I decided to keep going as long as I could.  When I got to a question that I felt I needed more than a quick 2 minute [...]

Why I Don’t Like Luck – The Climb #149

Monday 19th June 2017 One of the things I always used to love to do was get into a discussion on social media.  I am blessed with a load of intelligent friends and it used to be that you could have a really interesting discussion where no-one was right or wrong but you really probed [...]

I Knew – The Climb #143

Tuesday 13th June 2017 There’s part of me that feels like The Climb is very repetitive at the moment.  For what seems like a long time (but in reality is probably 3 or 4 days) I’ve been reporting on the edits, how I find it tough but also fun and how I am soldiering on. [...]

The Self-Doubt Of A Writer On The Verge – The Climb #62

Friday 24th March 2017 Today was a day of doubt and a lesson in patience. The day job was a bit busy today.  I seem to have run out of youtube videos from the people I follow, and so the day seemed to drag.  I then had to go grocery shopping, cook dinner and get [...]

Pattern Recognition – The Climb #55

Friday 17th March 2017 If you're trying to understand what I'm trying to do in this window between rewrites and submission, I think today's issue gives some real depth. Many years ago I worked for a youth voluntary organisation.  I had some great times, met people who are some of my closest friends even to [...]

Swimming With The Current – The Climb #45

Tuesday 7th March 2017 Today has been a series of cancelled appointments.  I suspect it’s the universe telling me to get on with writing the big chase scene. Actually, I don’t really mean that.  It’s just been a series of unpreventable events that has meant that a number of social plans have fallen through.  As [...]

The Rollercoaster of Life – The Climb #16

Monday 6th February 2017 Today I’ve been wondering when confidence becomes ego. There’s this old joke I always tell whenever anyone paid me a compliment.  It’s probably me deflecting my embarrassment of being unable to handle praise, but I always reply “and I’m really, really modest”.  Most people get it, and even if they don’t [...]

A Short Note About ‘Success’

You might be surprised to learn that failure isn’t the biggest enemy of success.  In fact, failure is very much a part of success, they are like two squabbling siblings who would defend each other against the world.  No, the biggest enemies of success are apathy and negativity. It’s all too easy to come up [...]
