The Path Of Least Resistance – The Climb #75

Thursday 6th April 2017 The day job has been a bit annoying today.  Every so often they do something that really stresses me out.  Part of the problem is that their HR is pretty poor and the way they handle things is terrible. I’m trying to be a good employee whilst also going full-in on [...]

A Very Productive Tuesday – The Climb #66

Tuesday 28th March 2017 Today has been an incredibly busy and productive day. I woke up late this morning.  Thankfully I could pretty much start the day job by rolling out of bed.  It’s probably a sign of just how tired I am. I logged onto my personal computer to find a load of comments [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Writers Are Inefficient – The Climb #52

Tuesday 14th March 2017 I’ve discovered that most writers are incredibly inefficient. It’s a criticism I’m also guilty of.  I’ve done loads of work over the last couple of years to change from a pantser to a planner – to go from winging the story as I write, to having a structure mapped out – [...]

Getting Nothing Done Deliberately – The Climb #51

Monday 13th March 2017 I don’t do ill. I’m very practical when it comes to illness.  I made a decision back during Leggedon that I had two choices, be a victim to illness or to fight it.  Ever since that decision I stopped taking days off just because I didn’t feel 100%.  That was just giving [...]

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 [...]

An Insanely Productive Day – The Climb #43

Sunday 5th March 2017 I definitely think I’m starting to feel better as is evidenced by the insane amount of work I got done today. I woke up actually not feeling tired for the first time in ages, despite going to bed totally exhausted.  I did a bit of editing on the latest version of [...]
