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 [...]

An Insanely Productive Day – The Climb #43

Sunday 5th March 2017 I definitely think I’m starting to feel better as is evidenced by the insane amount of work I got done today. I woke up actually not feeling tired for the first time in ages, despite going to bed totally exhausted.  I did a bit of editing on the latest version of [...]

The Year of the Offensive – February

In many ways, February was an odd month.  Looking back I think my diagnosis at the end of January really affected me.  It’s not that anything really changed.  If anything my health has got better rather than worse over the last few years.  But I still can’t eat beef without piling on a couple of [...]

Battling On – The Climb #38

Tuesday 28th February 2017 I’ve not been feeling better fatigue-wise and so, given that I am supposed to have a follow-up hospital appointment 6 weeks after my last one 5 weeks ago, I decided to chase up where the appointment had got to.  I was hoping that it had just got lost in the post, [...]

2017 – The Year Of The Offensive

2017 will be the Year of the Offensive. 2016 might have been the year for enduring every challenge I threw my way.  It might have been the year where I spent most of it feeling like I was drowning under challenges for every aspect of my life.   It might have been one of the most [...]

The Mountain

As I reach the end of the year, I find myself in the envious position that nearly everything I set out to do this year has been done.  I’m naturally feeling very pleased with myself, especially given how ambitious those targets were.  I now get to spend December relaxing (i.e. getting bored) working out my [...]

The Year Of Staying Hungry

In many ways this feels like an end of the year update, and in some ways it is.  Let me explain. As regular visitors know, rather than make new year’s resolutions, I give each year a theme.  The first year I did this was after being laid up with Leggeddon and so wanted a Year [...]
