Progress Over Perfection – The Climb #65

Monday 27th March 2017 I had a very strange drive home tonight.  I’d taken the video camera with me to training to get some footage of me fighting.  My gorilla pod turned up today and I put the video camera on the end. But I’m very self-conscious about filming in public and on the drive [...]

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 [...]

Quartermaster For the Zombie Apocalypse – The Climb #60

Wednesday 22nd March 2017 It’s been a long old day, most of which has been spent shifting  a large quantity of swords around. This morning was spent editing the last edition of The Climb as well as making plans for the day. I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to put my driving time to good use, [...]

Officially Badass – The Climb #59

Tuesday 21st March 2017 I felt a little better today, and I think I’ve pinpointed the cause. Over the last few months, I’ve added caffeine back into my diet.  This has usually come in the form of diet cokes or diet energy drinks.  Considering I used to drink at least a 2 litre bottle of [...]

The Mystery Of The Lost Swords – The Climb #58

Monday 20th March 2017 If I were a horse, I’m sure they would have turned me into glue by now. Woke up with my stomach still as bad as yesterday.  Luckily, the medication I picked up yesterday went a little way to easing the symptoms but I still felt a bit crap all day. Add [...]

The Payoff Down The Road – The Climb #56

Saturday 18th March 2017 I think one of the things that thwarts a lot of writers is the lack of instantaneous reward.  If you bake a cake, you can pretty much eat it straight from the oven.  If you rebuild the engine of a car, you can take the car for a drive. But as [...]

Execution Is Everything – The Climb #53

Wednesday 15th March 2017 Execution is everything On day 3 of my forced sickness and I feel like the cold I’ve been suffering either lined up miraculously well, or that slowing things down for a few days brought it to the fore. I’ve actually made a lot of progress on the health front today.  I [...]

The Micro And The Macro – The Climb #50

Sunday 12th March 2017 I had originally planned that issue 50 of The Climb would be my manifesto issue, where I would state my objectives and aims as a writer.  But then I realised that my blog post on The Year of the Offensive was just that. And so I was stuck for what to [...]

Snatching Victory From The Jaws OF A Defeat Snatched From The Jaws Of Success – The Climb #49

Saturday 11th March 2017 Today say I snatched victory from the jaws of a defeat snatched from the jaws of success Today started well, got decidedly worse and then improved.  I woke up to some non-writing news that was amazing, resulting in me being very excited.  However, this quickly turned into a complete disaster and [...]

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 [...]
