Turning Up – The Climb #36

Sunday 26th February 2017 Today has been fuelled by Monster energy drinks. I set my alarm early this morning so I woke up in time to go to swordfighting training.  I was very tempted to give it a miss.  After all, it’s not like I ever miss training when loads of other people do. But [...]

Hungover Saturday – The Climb #35

Saturday 25th February 2017 I’m not really a great drinker any more. I’d go out and get pissed with my mates when I was in my 20's but as I’ve got older, and especially in the last year when I’ve been eating and drinking healthy, I probably have a drink once a month. Friday night… [...]

An Important Milestone – The Climb #31

Tuesday 21st February 2017 Today’s been an interesting day. The most important thing is that this draft of the novel has reached an important stage.  I got a lot of writing done tonight.  This scene, which the first part felt like wading through treacle, opened up and became an easy write.  This might be because [...]

Rough & Tumblrs – The Climb #29

Sunday 19th February 2017 In which I discover that if I fight for 2 solid hours and dehydrate, my face ends up looking like a prune! Today’s been a good day. I’ve come to the conclusion that my potential reader-base is on Tumblr and I need to create one.  But just as silly personal content [...]

Progress Is Progress Is Progress – The Climb #28

Saturday 18th February 2017 Given how last week I slept in until the afternoon and how knackered I was feeling after this past week, I’d not planned to accomplish much on Saturday.  However, I woke at 9am (which wasn’t that late given how late I’d gone to bed) and despite trying to get back to [...]

End Of A Busy Week – The Climb #27

Friday 17th February 2017 Today I spent most of the day in an office learning about the features of Windows Server 2016.  The traffic was terrible and I ended up 20 minutes late, which whilst nobody minded, just put me behind all day. This week has proved a busy work week with the day job [...]

You Can’t Write Car Chases – The Climb #26

Thursday 16th February 2017 I think you can tell when I’ve not written anything the day before as I’m always in a bad mood. Some people love to have written, but only writers love to write.  It took me a long time to realise that the feeling you get when everything feels like it’s not [...]

Investing For The Big Payoff Down The Line – The Climb #24

Tuesday 14th February 2016 I do sometimes worry that some days nothing exciting happens, that there’s no huge news or important revelations about writing the new novel or marketing the other one. But writing is like that.  Sure I try and make it entertaining, but I think The Climb isn’t something that something where you [...]

The Dangers of Fame – The Climb #19

Thursday 9th February 2017 I’ve felt a lot more settled today.  After the rollercoaster of a week, I do still feel mentally shattered, but I managed to make today very productive. I’ve been doing some social media work.  Yesterday I had some ideas of what I need to do, and the big issue has been [...]

I Started A Cult – The Climb #14

Saturday 4th February 2017 Today I started a cult whilst in the gym. Well not an actual cult… but a fictional one that will fit well into the novel.  As I was there pounding away on the treadmill I came up with the idea and saw loads of ways it could connect into not only [...]
