A Day Of Failures – The Climb #150

Tuesday 20th June 2017 Today was my biggest day of failure in a long while. Chasepalooza, like any holiday, cost a bit of money.  It was certainly cheaper than previous years.  I was working out the costing for my friend, Pat, who wants to chase with us next year if we do it (I’ll be [...]

The Unsexy Work – The Climb #148

Sunday 18th June 2017 Some days aren’t glamorous.  Some days are about turning up and doing the fucking work.  There’s nothing unique about the work, you don’t even believe you do your best work but you turn up anyway and you do it. That was my today. I went sparring this morning.  It’s a 90 [...]

I Never Thought I’d Love This So Much – The Climb #145

Thursday 15th June 2017 OK, I never thought I’d say this but… editing is fun. I’ve done about 50 pages today.  This puts me about 100 pages in out of 723.  I say ‘about’ as I have to expand a scene and so I need to break from the line edits briefly to bring an [...]

Making Some Hard Choices – The Climb #141

Sunday 11th June 2017 Editing is simultaneously both fun and incredibly hard.  Mentally, I’m deep into the line edits although in terms of number of chapters I’m still very near the beginning and I’m finding some of the changes really challenging. It’s not because they are difficult, per say, it’s just that they are making [...]

Back To The Office – The Climb #137

Wednesday 7th June 2017 Today has been a bit of a nothing day, but thanks to a productive day yesterday, I don’t feel frustrated by it. I woke late again, my body clock still not back to normal (thanks, fidgeting woman)  but by the time I had breakfast and took care of a few things, [...]

The Grind Starts Here – The Climb #135

Monday 5th June 2017 You know that meme where someone is returning back to work after holiday wondering “how they got on without me?”  They open the door to the office to see a post-apocalyptic wasteland, people running around on fire, others pulling their hair out screaming, you get the picture.  This was my day [...]

Fighting Fit – The Climb #134

Sunday 4th June 2016 Today was my first time swordfighting since before Chasepalooza.  I managed to wake up in time but still felt a bit out of it.  So I really wasn’t expecting much.  In fact, I reckoned I was so out of shape that it might be best to give today a miss. But… [...]

Absolute Lethargy – The Climb #133

Saturday 3rd June 2017 I was woken by my neighbour playing music in their garden.  Bloody inconsiderate, I thought.  Didn’t they think that people might need a lay in?  Although I still felt tired, I was awake now so I got up… and then found it was Midday. Yep, I think I’m definitely suffering from [...]

Jetlagged – The Climb #132

Friday 2nd June 2017 I’ve heard it said that jetlag doesn’t hit you for a couple of days after returning, and that would seem to be the case because today I’ve been absolutely floored. I’ve always been pretty lucky.  I usually opt to take a red-eye and try to sleep when flying back from North [...]
