How To Get Started – The Climb #368

Wednesday 24th January 2018 I have no idea why, but I somehow only managed 3 hours sleep last night.  As a result I’ve been ridiculously tired all day, not achieved much and have decided to focus this edition of The Climb on some practical advise on getting started. It doesn’t help when it’s an incredibly [...]

Organising For The Year Ahead – The Climb #367

Tuesday 23rd January 2018 It always seems to take me until the end of the month to get myself in gear for the year.  My friend says that it’s the same in the gym, that the big influx of new people comes a few weeks into January rather than in the first week. Having a [...]

Restless – The Climb #363

Friday 19th January 2018 I’m a bad patient.  By all rights what I should be doing is enjoying the rest.  I’ve had a tough couple of weeks mentally and have no projects outstanding.  The sensible thing to do would be to rest, to gather my mental energy and just consume media ready for the next [...]

A Day Of Unexpected Editing – The Climb #353

Tuesday 9th January 2018 I’ve been feeling pretty invisible today.  I’m waiting on an email and a friend who’s currently without a mobile and said there was a 50/50 chance they’d come round, didn’t.  I’ve also been monitoring how much stress the day job gives me, and have watched my levels rise in the last [...]

The Year Of The Offensive – The Climb #344

Sunday 31st December 2017 2017 was a funny old year.  It was my Year of the Offensive … a year for me to push myself and claim the rewards for my hard work.  As I said back then “it’s going to be a year where I happen to it rather than it happens to me”. [...]

The Danger Of Doing What Is Expected – The Climb #343

Saturday 30th December 2017 I didn’t feel too bad this morning considering how much I’d had to drink at the party, but I was glad when some of the others who’d stayed over decided that we’d go to a greasy spoon.  I’m not sure whether it was just the hangover, but I think that was [...]

Plans For 2018 – The Climb #334

Thursday 21st December 2017 It feels that over the last couple of days, plans for 2018 have suddenly come into focus.  Maybe, getting an idea of what my theme for the year is has allowed everything to slot together, or perhaps taking a bit of a break has given me time to relax and gather [...]

The Product Of Hard Work – The Climb #239

Sunday 17th September 2017 There was a time when I got excited about birthdays.  Now they just make me feel old. I’d not really planned to do anything for my birthday today.  I’d figured I would be knackered from yesterday’s tournament and would want a quiet one.  I was, however, determined to make it to [...]

Method Writing – The Climb #235

Wednesday 13th September 2017 You’ve probably heard of method acting.  This is where an actor is so mentally invested in a role that even when not playing them they take on some of the characteristics.  It’s considered by many to be a very in-depth form of acting. I think I method write.  This occurred to [...]

Time Is The Enemy – The Climb #230

Friday 8th September 2017 It’s tempting to think that whilst I’m sat here playing World of Warcraft and tracking friends who are chasing Hurricane Irma, that nothing is going on with the writing career. But the fact is that whilst I try and recharge, the manuscript is currently with my agent.  I got an update [...]
