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 [...]

It’s That Stage Of The Novel – The Climb #69

Friday 31st March 2017 I was having a really hard time plotting out this next chapter this evening and found myself wondering what was going wrong.  Usually I’m pretty good at planning chapters out, both thinking about it and then putting it down.  But my mind has been blank for a couple of days on [...]

Sleep Deprivation – The Climb #67

Wednesday 29th March 2017 Today I have been a zombie.  Or to be more accurate – I’ve been suffering with sleep deprivation You see, working late last night I had a sensible plan.  I didn’t have to go into the office until later in the day and so could lay in.  I could still get [...]

A Very Productive Tuesday – The Climb #66

Tuesday 28th March 2017 Today has been an incredibly busy and productive day. I woke up late this morning.  Thankfully I could pretty much start the day job by rolling out of bed.  It’s probably a sign of just how tired I am. I logged onto my personal computer to find a load of comments [...]

The Self-Doubt Of A Writer On The Verge – The Climb #62

Friday 24th March 2017 Today was a day of doubt and a lesson in patience. The day job was a bit busy today.  I seem to have run out of youtube videos from the people I follow, and so the day seemed to drag.  I then had to go grocery shopping, cook dinner and get [...]

Quartermaster For the Zombie Apocalypse – The Climb #60

Wednesday 22nd March 2017 It’s been a long old day, most of which has been spent shifting  a large quantity of swords around. This morning was spent editing the last edition of The Climb as well as making plans for the day. I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to put my driving time to good use, [...]

Officially Badass – The Climb #59

Tuesday 21st March 2017 I felt a little better today, and I think I’ve pinpointed the cause. Over the last few months, I’ve added caffeine back into my diet.  This has usually come in the form of diet cokes or diet energy drinks.  Considering I used to drink at least a 2 litre bottle of [...]

The Payoff Down The Road – The Climb #56

Saturday 18th March 2017 I think one of the things that thwarts a lot of writers is the lack of instantaneous reward.  If you bake a cake, you can pretty much eat it straight from the oven.  If you rebuild the engine of a car, you can take the car for a drive. But as [...]

Pattern Recognition – The Climb #55

Friday 17th March 2017 If you're trying to understand what I'm trying to do in this window between rewrites and submission, I think today's issue gives some real depth. Many years ago I worked for a youth voluntary organisation.  I had some great times, met people who are some of my closest friends even to [...]
