Honorary Canadian – The Climb #32

Wednesday 22nd February 2017 Today there was a lot of needless day job stress, which annoys me, because it’s not needed and my stomach felt like glass as a result for the rest of the day. It’s been odd in other ways.  As I went into the office a colleague asked me how I was. [...]

Rough & Tumblrs – The Climb #29

Sunday 19th February 2017 In which I discover that if I fight for 2 solid hours and dehydrate, my face ends up looking like a prune! Today’s been a good day. I’ve come to the conclusion that my potential reader-base is on Tumblr and I need to create one.  But just as silly personal content [...]

92 Days And Counting… – The Climb #25

Wednesday 15th February 2017 I was reminded today that it’s only 92 days until I go storm chasing again. We’re doing something different this year.  Last year was high octane insanity.  We were driving at tornadoes coming towards us, jumping out the van to get video and photos and then dashing away at the last [...]

You Can’t Be Brilliant Every Week – The Climb #22

Sunday 12th February 2017 Today I went and did a little sparring with friends. I think today showed me how much of an odd week this has been.  Unlike last week when my focus was laser sharp and I fenced probably the best I ever have, this week my mind wandered and as a result [...]

A Quieter Day – The Climb #18

Wednesday 8th February 2017 After the rollercoaster of the start of this week, today was quite an ordinary day.  Quite quiet as well (although I’m not complaining) I’m still in a bit of a weird mood and it wasn’t helped by various things eating into my day and writing time. I made up for it [...]

World-Class – The Climb #17

Tuesday 7th February 2017 My emotional rollercoaster of a week continues with the news today that I now officially have a world-ranking for swordfighting. I’ve known for a while that it was coming and whilst I don’t rank particularly high, I only really started competing last year.  But, I’d like to think that 12-year-old me [...]

I Started A Cult – The Climb #14

Saturday 4th February 2017 Today I started a cult whilst in the gym. Well not an actual cult… but a fictional one that will fit well into the novel.  As I was there pounding away on the treadmill I came up with the idea and saw loads of ways it could connect into not only [...]

Now I Have A Mace – The Climb #11

Wednesday 1st February 2017 Some days you just don’t get a lot of time to get writing done. After a late night, this morning was spent editing yesterday’s The Climb.  It was one of the longer editions I’ve posted and because it was quite political, I wanted to double check that I’d not said anything [...]

Long Term Gains – The Climb #9

Monday 30th January 2017 Today was a bit like second Christmas I had two deliveries today.  The first was a camera device I backed on Kickstarter.  It has a lightning detector which I’m hoping to use it in America this summer to take some awesome storm photography. The other thing I got was a new [...]
