Popping Into Focus – The Climb #78

Sunday 9th April 2017 One thing has been on my mind all throughout a very busy day today.  Plotting out these next two chapters last night, I had a problem where I need a secondary character to not be in the scenes. That sounds simple, right?  Just omit him, or say he’s doing something.  Trouble [...]

I Needed To Do This – The Climb #77

Saturday 8th April 2017 Today has seen some glorious weather.  We’re finally into the season where you can go out in just a T-Shirt and not feel cold.  It’s a sign that summer is well on its way. And how do I know this?  Was it because I spent all day in the sunshine?  Or was [...]

The Year Of The Offensive – March

February is always tough for me.  I’m not entirely sure why.  Maybe it takes me a month to get my plans for the year into action.  Last year February saw me struggle with rewrites and decide to get my health in order.  It signalled the start of a very tough year.  This year, February once [...]

Positivity Challenged – The Climb #76

Friday 7th April 2017 The issues with the day job that I talked about yesterday put me in a strange mood today.  As a result I got very little day job work done. It also had the knock-on effect on my writing as well. I had a big Amazon delivery arrive today.  I got a [...]

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 [...]

I’m Going To Upset A Few People – The Climb #74

Wednesday 5th April 2017 I usually stay away from debate on the internet.  It’s not that I don’t care about certain causes, but I figure I have only a certain amount of mental energy and I need most of that to work on my own projects.  I figure it’s also better for my sanity. But [...]

Something Has To Give – The Climb #73

Tuesday 4th April 2017 I came  to a realisation today that something is going to have to give in the near future. My original plan was that when the editorial comments came back I would take a couple of weeks off the day job and get them complete.  After my challenging 2016, I want to [...]

The Calm Before The Storm – The Climb #72

Monday 3rd April 2017 Today was one of those days where it felt like it was going to be a quiet day and then in the last couple of hours a few major things happened.  So you get a bumper edition today (and that’s with a few things being pushed to tomorrow) Those who’ve been following [...]

I Was Afraid To Start – The Climb #71

Sunday 2nd April 2017 One of the things that’s really occupied my mind the last few days is starting to film this vlog.  I’ve been watching a lot of Youtube recently and mentally noting all the things I need to do:  I need to get some proper lighting, I need to be doing something rather [...]

Can’t Believe I Did This – The Climb #70

Saturday 1st April 2017 I had a long list of tasks to do today, mostly brand related.  One of the things I’ve been investigating is running a live poll as a way to build up your Facebook Fan Page.  Inbetween everything else, I’ve spent weeks researching as technically it's quite difficult to do and earlier [...]
