Note Taking – The Climb #172

Wednesday 12th July 2017 For some reason I’ve been consumed by note taking today.  And not taking notes but the process of taking notes. I’m not sure if this is driven by a need to be more organised after the disruption of the last week or not but I realised that there must be a [...]

Getting Back On The Horse – The Climb #171

Tuesday 11th July 2017 One of the outcomes from Leggedon was the need to be super organised.  I needed to take all manners of medication, ensure the leg got exercise, monitor and manage my food and a million other things.  On top of this, I had a broken novel that needed fixing, and so I [...]

Bleeding Through My Eyes – The Climb #147

Saturday 17th June 2017 Today has been a tough day.  Some days writing flows like silk, and some days you’re in a trench engaged in a land battle.  Today has been the latter. After not getting any work done yesterday, today I’ve been trying to make up for lost time.  I wanted to edit a [...]

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 [...]

Editing A Novel Is Like Going To The Gym – The Climb #142

Monday 12th June 2017 Editing the novel is currently a bit like going to the gym.  There’s a huge part of you that’s put off by the idea.  It’ll hurt, it’s a lot of effort.  But at the same time you know it’s something you need to do in order to reach your goals.  And [...]

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 [...]

Lost Time – The Climb #140

Saturday 10th June 2017 Today was given over to writing, and yet I worked out I really only had 2 solid hours in which to get any work done. I woke late.  My sleeping patterns have still not recovered since getting back from Canada and so I find myself going to bed later and waking [...]

Learning To Listen To My Gut – The Climb #139

Friday 9th May 2017 Some days are just unproductive, even though want of trying. Today’s plan was to get the ball scene done.  In many ways it’s a simple change.  Currently hero stumbles across information at the ball.  Instead, he has to go seek it out. It should be a simple change but it’s going [...]

I Can’t Believe How Scary This Is – The Climb #138

Thursday 8th June 2017 I’ve managed to do a lot more editing today, and it’s been very scary.  For the first part of this week it’s been both scary and fun.  Today it was just scary. Today I well and truly stepped outside my comfort zone. I needed to move a scene to another part [...]

A Different Way Of Editing – The Climb #136

Tuesday 6th May 2017 I’ve been editing in an entirely new way today. Usually, when I have a major edit to do, I’ll start at the beginning and work my way towards the end.  I like working that way as it gives me somewhat of a sense of security.  It means that I can check [...]
