Stop Worrying About The Long Term Forecast – The Climb #109

Wednesday 10th May 2017 I woke up with a scratchy throat this morning and I wonder if this touch of illness has put me a little off colour today. This has been the first day where I really didn’t enjoy vlogging.  Maybe the novelty has worn off but I found I was asking myself why [...]

I Became A Vlogger – The Climb #107

Monday 8th May 2017 And like that, I’m suddenly a vlogger! Whilst I’ve been filming content since Saturday, the first vlog didn’t go live until late last night.  And I woke this morning to find the reception has been very positive. I’m very much framing this exercise as a precursor to chasing.  I have no [...]

Nearing The End – The Climb #99

Sunday 30th April 2017 Some days writing is a joy, sometimes it’s a slog and as we approach the end of this draft and I push to get it finished, today has been very firmly on the slog end of the scale. It used to be that crappy chapter drafts bothered me.  I felt that [...]

Hangovers and Hard Work – The Climb #98

Saturday 29th April 2017 I woke at 4am with the view that perhaps my strategy of having a ‘blow out’ before a weekend of writing was a bad one.  I drank a load of water and felt queasy for about an hour, before falling back asleep. I woke at 8am, 12 hours after I not [...]

I Need To Change This… – The Climb #96

Thursday 27th April 2017 I dream of a day… I dream of a day when I can get more than five hours sleep before having to get up and ready for work.  I dream of an evening where upon coming back from town I have the energy to do more than just sit and procrastinate [...]

I Am Wolverine! – The Climb #95

Wednesday 26th April 2017 I’m going to be so knackered tomorrow.  It’s currently 1:45am as I sit down to start writing up The Climb and I’ve already had a really hectic day!  Although saying that, it was a collection of a number of small, random and relatively insignificant events rather anything I can really get [...]

Countdown to Canada – The Climb #94

Tuesday 25th April 2017 It’s only the second day of the week and already I feel tired.  Today has been another insanely busy day. I’ve done something to my lower back.  It started a few weeks ago but it continues to play up.  I’ve taken great care with it especially at the gym and thought [...]

Getting Bruised – The Climb #93

Monday 24th April 2017 I’m not sure if there’s something in the water or not, but there’s definitely an air of intolerance going around the SFF community I watched today as a discussion about the Gemmell Awards got a bit heated.  It seemed to boil down to the fact that the public are stupid and [...]

Not Listening – The Climb #92

Sunday 23rd April 2017 There’s been a lot lost this weekend to procrastination / feeling exhausted and Sunday continued that trend a little. After scheduling yesterday’s edition of The Climb I got into the car and drove to go swordfighting.  Despite having a couple of energy drinks I felt sluggish today and I think it’s [...]
