I’ve Already Won – The Climb #79

Monday 10th April 2017 Today I learnt that I’ve already won. Now let me start by saying that we need to be clear about the definition of winning.  For you, that might be interpreted as writing a bestseller or an award-winning book, but for me it’s subtly different.  Winning is about ensuring that I’ve done [...]

I Needed To Do This – The Climb #77

Saturday 8th April 2017 Today has seen some glorious weather.  We’re finally into the season where you can go out in just a T-Shirt and not feel cold.  It’s a sign that summer is well on its way. And how do I know this?  Was it because I spent all day in the sunshine?  Or was [...]

The Year Of The Offensive – March

February is always tough for me.  I’m not entirely sure why.  Maybe it takes me a month to get my plans for the year into action.  Last year February saw me struggle with rewrites and decide to get my health in order.  It signalled the start of a very tough year.  This year, February once [...]

Positivity Challenged – The Climb #76

Friday 7th April 2017 The issues with the day job that I talked about yesterday put me in a strange mood today.  As a result I got very little day job work done. It also had the knock-on effect on my writing as well. I had a big Amazon delivery arrive today.  I got a [...]

A Day Of Marketing Work – The Climb #68

Thursday 30th March 2017 You’d think waking at 10am would have resulted in me feeling rested.  However, given the events of yesterday, I’m still owed about 6 hours sleep even after my 7 hour nap last night. On the plus side, my day job day was much shorter than normal.  On the downside I still [...]

Fighting Time – The Climb #64

Sunday 26th March 2017 I hate it that the clocks go forward. Not only do you have to change all your clocks (although with the advent of internet connectivity that is quickly becoming a thing of the past) but when you are working on The Climb at 2am knowing you have to be out the [...]

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 [...]

Writers Are Inefficient – The Climb #52

Tuesday 14th March 2017 I’ve discovered that most writers are incredibly inefficient. It’s a criticism I’m also guilty of.  I’ve done loads of work over the last couple of years to change from a pantser to a planner – to go from winging the story as I write, to having a structure mapped out – [...]

Cake Club – The Climb #47

Thursday 9th March 2017 Today I went to eat cake but ended up bringing it home. Last year, myself and a couple of other up and coming writers formed a collective.  The idea was to gather every couple of months, update each other on progress and help each other promote our careers.  We met in [...]

There’s A Pattern To Success – The Climb #44

Monday 6th March 2017 After my spate of productivity yesterday I didn’t feel I got much done today. I did clear off a number of work-related tasks so I suppose there was that but I’m very much aware of how many things I want to be doing (finishing this novel, writing a couple of short [...]
