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 [...]

The Year of The Offensive – January

January kicked off the way I hoped the year would, with an explosion of work.  After a mentally tough year of levelling up as a writer in 2016, I want 2017 to be a much more productive year (not that 2016 wasn’t productive, it was just slower than previous years). I kicked off (re)working on [...]

Villainy – The Climb #13

Friday 3rd February 2017 Today has been a thinking day. I’ve not got a lot of writing done because I’m aware that there’s something wrong with this scene I’m at.  As I mentioned yesterday, there was originally this big horrific scene involving two “red shirts”.  The recent draft has dropped that down to one and [...]

IT Challenges – The Climb #12

Thursday 2nd February 2017 Today has been a day of IT challenges. The day job has been a little busy today and I needed to try and get a load done before I headed into town this afternoon.  Technically, this should have been an easy job.  That is unless the world of corporate IT decides [...]

Now I Have A Mace – The Climb #11

Wednesday 1st February 2017 Some days you just don’t get a lot of time to get writing done. After a late night, this morning was spent editing yesterday’s The Climb.  It was one of the longer editions I’ve posted and because it was quite political, I wanted to double check that I’d not said anything [...]

Getting Political – The Climb #10

Tuesday 31st January 2017 Today I spent a lot of time arguing politics on the internet. I’ll be honest that I’ve never been a very political person.  I think that comes from growing up pretty privileged.  I used to subscribe to the notion to never talk politics or religion but changed my opinion probably in [...]

Long Term Gains – The Climb #9

Monday 30th January 2017 Today was a bit like second Christmas I had two deliveries today.  The first was a camera device I backed on Kickstarter.  It has a lightning detector which I’m hoping to use it in America this summer to take some awesome storm photography. The other thing I got was a new [...]

Fighting Hard – The Climb #8

Sunday 29th January 2017 Today has been all about fighting. I went sparring with other swordfighters today.  Unlike last week (see The Climb #1) we had a good turnout and so I got a lot of fights in.  I’m a naturally defensive fighter so my aim for this year is to become much more offensive.  [...]
