A Day Of Consuming Media – The Climb #386

Sunday 11th November 2018 Today I’ve been really bored. I still think it’ll be a number of weeks before I start writing something new, and whilst I have a short story I need to work on, I was too restless for what is a delicate bit of prose.  And given I spent some time yesterday [...]

Restless – The Climb #363

Friday 19th January 2018 I’m a bad patient.  By all rights what I should be doing is enjoying the rest.  I’ve had a tough couple of weeks mentally and have no projects outstanding.  The sensible thing to do would be to rest, to gather my mental energy and just consume media ready for the next [...]

Cooking And Editing – The Climb #350

Saturday 6th January 2018 It’s been a bit of a hectic day today. It seems like it’s been ages since I had a free weekend.  There always seems to be some event on, or on call work with the day job, or a tournament or the like.  I have sparring tomorrow but given that it’s [...]

The Dresden Reread – The Climb #349

Friday 5th January 2018 One of the things I really wasn’t happy about last year was how little I read.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to read – I bought a ton of books.  I just never found the time in between edits and tournaments to really sit down days in succession and read. [...]

Adventures In Brimstone – The Climb #348

Thursday 4th January 2018 As I’ve previously said, I end up buying a load of boardgames on kickstarter.   They are amazing value for money but I do end up going all in, which means I really should be playing them some more. Currently, the only time I get to play is when my friends come [...]

Keeping Busy – The Climb #226

Monday 4th September 2017 The day job definitely seems to be the source of my current spate of stress.  I’m still not exactly sure why though. I actually wondered whether I should be starting another writing project just to take my mind off things.  Perhaps this stress is all generated by the fact I have [...]

I Need To Read More – The Climb #207

Wednesday 16th August 2017 I’ve had a day where an unintentional slight that actually worked in my favour really bothered me. I turned up to training tonight thinking I was going to be teaching to find I wasn’t.  That in itself doesn’t bother me.  I always said I would teach for a 6 month block [...]

Game of Moans – The Climb #187

Thursday 27th July 2017 I was feeling so exhausted today that part of me wanted to postpone cake club tonight.  But given that I’d already pushed it back a week due to tournament prep, plus I need to get back into a writing frame of mind, I went and am glad I did. We really [...]

Learning To Listen To My Gut – The Climb #139

Friday 9th May 2017 Some days are just unproductive, even though want of trying. Today’s plan was to get the ball scene done.  In many ways it’s a simple change.  Currently hero stumbles across information at the ball.  Instead, he has to go seek it out. It should be a simple change but it’s going [...]

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 – [...]
