So This Is How Other People Live – The Climb #220

Tuesday 29th August 2017 If you’re a person who is on the go, then taking a forced break is a strange thing.  It reminds me of stepping off one of those travellators you find at airports:  your momentum is forward but everything around you has slowed down and you feel yourself stumble. I do still [...]

A Seriously Stressful Day – The Climb #214

Wednesday 23rd August 2017 This is how it all happened. I thought I was being smart.  Given that the person I handed the School of the Sword payments over to is off long-term sick, I thought rather than panic day to day, I’d bunch all the tasks together and do them in bulk. It made [...]

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 [...]

Note Taking – The Climb #172

Wednesday 12th July 2017 For some reason I’ve been consumed by note taking today.  And not taking notes but the process of taking notes. I’m not sure if this is driven by a need to be more organised after the disruption of the last week or not but I realised that there must be a [...]

Getting Back On The Horse – The Climb #171

Tuesday 11th July 2017 One of the outcomes from Leggedon was the need to be super organised.  I needed to take all manners of medication, ensure the leg got exercise, monitor and manage my food and a million other things.  On top of this, I had a broken novel that needed fixing, and so I [...]

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 [...]

Bleeding Through My Eyes – The Climb #147

Saturday 17th June 2017 Today has been a tough day.  Some days writing flows like silk, and some days you’re in a trench engaged in a land battle.  Today has been the latter. After not getting any work done yesterday, today I’ve been trying to make up for lost time.  I wanted to edit a [...]

Feeling Rough – The Climb #146

Friday 16th June 2017 Today was an odd day.  I’m not sure if I ate something that disagreed with me, or I just naturally feel tired, or I’m mentally stuck on something but I spent the evening feeling totally exhausted and have decided to go to bed early.  Worse still, I’ve not made any progress [...]

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. [...]

A Different Way Of Editing – The Climb #136

Tuesday 6th May 2017 I’ve been editing in an entirely new way today. Usually, when I have a major edit to do, I’ll start at the beginning and work my way towards the end.  I like working that way as it gives me somewhat of a sense of security.  It means that I can check [...]
