Rearranging The Office – The Climb #379

Sunday 4th February 2018 Today I decided to tidy up my office space and create a second desk.  I’m playing games online with friends who live locally and it would be nice to be able to invite them around and have a social evening playing online together. I have a couple of old PCs, and [...]

Lazy Saturday – The Climb #378

Saturday 3rd February 2018 I feel like I’ve been really lazy this week.  Whilst there are some weeks where I don’t feel like I get a lot of things done, it’s not usually due to a lack of trying. Yet, this week.  I don’t think I’ll look back at this week and see it being [...]

The Need To Consume As A Writer – The Climb #377

Friday 2nd February 2018 If you want to be successful at anything, you pretty much have to follow the same pattern.  Whether it be in sports or creative arts or business, you need to work hard and put in years of grind (most of it unnoticed). That means sacrifice.  That means giving up some leisure [...]

February Could Be A Busy Month – The Climb #376

Thursday 1st February 2018 I went back to work too early.  I’ve never been one for being off ill and so I’ll drag myself back to work as soon as possible.  But my hand really wasn’t feeling up to a day of use. Over the last day or so I’ve typed a little, I’ve played [...]

The Walking Wounded – The Climb #374

Tuesday 30th January 2018 Today I hurt like someone who’d nearly chopped their finger off.  Now the shock has worn off. The hand really, really hurts. It’s not just the finger though… just trying to stretch my hand results in pain.  So typing hurts it (even if not using the finger), ALT-CTRL-DEL is next to [...]

I Severed My Finger – The Climb #373

Monday 29th January 2018 For someone who fights with blades I’m not very good with sharp objects. I had a major injury today and sliced a good chunk of my finger off, nail and all. The day job was really busy this morning.  We had a major incident that took a lot of our time [...]

A Day Of Progress – The Climb #372

Sunday 28th January 2018 I have two swordfighting competitions in the next month.  They’re not for my primary weapon type (rapier & dagger) so I’m not too worried about them.  My hope is that they are a way to ease myself back into competition. First I have the English Sidesword Open.  I’m fighting single sidesword [...]

Starting On A New Short Story – The Climb #371

Saturday 27th January 2018 Today has been quite a hectic day.  I actually managed to get a decent night’s sleep for a change.  I was then up and about trying to get some bits for dinner tonight where a friend came over for a meal and we watched IT. However, in amongst all the chaos, [...]

Creating A Big Bad For The Next Novel – The Climb #370

Friday 26th January 2018 My friend came over this evening and we had an evening of watching The Defenders on Netflix.  It was a fun evening of silliness, fart jokes and I actually really liked seeing the Netflix Marvel Universe come together  (Don’t even start me off on how excited I am for Infinity War) [...]

I Gave Away My Best Idea – The Climb #369

Thursday 25th January 2018 There’s this thought when you start out as a writer that ideas are sacred, something heaven-bourne.  If you’ve not had much writing experience you can also fall into the trap of thinking an idea arrives fully realised. “Where do you get your ideas?” many authors are asked, and the answer is [...]
