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 [...]

Planning The Greatest Swordfight Ever – The Climb #42

Saturday 4th March 2017 Saturday is supposed to be my rest day but I’ve ended it feeling absolutely exhausted.  However, unlike my recent fatigue, I can squarely put this down to having an incredibly busy day. I got up and made myself a big brunch in between doing some general writing admin.  By the time [...]

People Are Contradictions – The Climb #41

Friday 3rd March 2017 Today, I had a bit of an epiphany. It’s that the fact that people are, by nature, contradictions.  If they are x, then at exactly the same time they are also the polar opposite.  If they are confident, then it is because they are also terribly insecure.  If they say they [...]

Climb The Sky – The Climb #40

Thursday 2nd March 2017 Today was a good day that saw me get a lot of stuff done.  Not only did I make progress with the things I'm currently working on, but I kicked off one of the big side projects I wanted to start this year. As I predicted yesterday, I did not take the day off [...]

August 2016 Update

Blogging just seems to be one of those things that has got away from me this year.  Whilst I’ve sometimes taken the lazy man’s option of posting an image to Instagram, I’ve not been as good as I was last year with monthly updates.  Ironically, it’s because I’ve been so busy that I’ve not been [...]

A Weekend With The Dresden Files

If truth be told, I’m still feeling a little shellshocked from Worldcon.  Usually I come back from events eager to push my writing harder but after a double weekend of Nine Worlds and Worldcon I instead find myself feeling like I still need to decompress.  As a result, I’ve got very little actual writing done. It [...]

The 2013 End Of Year Review

In many ways I should look back on 2013 as a shit year. It challenged me in ways I could never have imagined. But in reality, I think it was actually a really good year. The universe decided to throw everything it possibly could against me… and it lost. Leggedon was a defining moment and [...]

The Ocean At The End Of The Lane

As a writer there are very few books I wish I could have written. My head is so full of my own ideas and nonsense that the voice of others isn’t something that interests me. Instead I dissect, tear open story like some mad doctor as I read and analyse its various organs. I’m sympathetic [...]
