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 [...]

Fighting Fit – The Climb #134

Sunday 4th June 2016 Today was my first time swordfighting since before Chasepalooza.  I managed to wake up in time but still felt a bit out of it.  So I really wasn’t expecting much.  In fact, I reckoned I was so out of shape that it might be best to give today a miss. But… [...]

Building My ToDo List – The Climb #131

Thursday 1st June 2017 Today was the first day resembling a return to normality.  I woke up in my own bed and returned to the day job. Of course, now that Chasepalooza is over, I have a mountain of things to do – from the mundane such as unpacking all my gear and dealing with [...]

May The Fourth Be With You – The Climb #103

Thursday 4th May 2017 Happy Star Wars Day everyone! I spent my day still feeling a bit glum and restless from the post-novel blues.  I can rationalise my petulance.    Having returned home late last night and then had to get up early for the day job meant that I was tired most of the day, [...]

Nearing The End – The Climb #99

Sunday 30th April 2017 Some days writing is a joy, sometimes it’s a slog and as we approach the end of this draft and I push to get it finished, today has been very firmly on the slog end of the scale. It used to be that crappy chapter drafts bothered me.  I felt that [...]

How I Write – The Climb #97

Friday 28th April 2017 As you know, I like to write each edition of The Climb at the end of the day and then edit the next day.  In the interests of full disclosure, this one was written at the start of the next day (for reasons you’ll find out). My current schedule is leaving [...]

The Secret To Great Characters – The Climb #90

Friday 21st April 2017 If there’s been a theme to today it’s been about character arcs.  That and feeling totally exhausted. The main reason they’ve been on my mind is that I was thinking back to the greatest swordfight ever written that I drafted yesterday.  Overall, I don’t think it’s bad but something was bothering [...]
