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 [...]

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 [...]
