End Of A Long Week – The Climb #6

Friday 27th January 2017 Today was an early start.  I was up long before dawn, getting ready and then heading into town for a number of appointments:  gym, bank, nutrition, etc.  I got a new PB benching 60kg and started working towards full chin ups.  Given how much weight I’ve lost and some areas of [...]

The Hermit – The Climb #5

Thursday 26th January 2017 After the craziness of the start of this week, today has been a lot more relaxed.  I worked from home all day which meant that other than popping across the road to get some salad I didn’t leave the house. Sometimes I like that, shutting myself away from people.  I like [...]

A Trip To The Hospital – The Climb #4

Wednesday 25th January 2017 I said yesterday that Wednesday would be a busy day.  I under-estimated just how much. The morning was taken up by a hospital check up.  I had a biopsy done 3 months ago and today I went back for the results.  What I thought would be a routine update turned into [...]

Making Time – The Climb #2

Monday 23rd January 2017 Today was a scrappy day with the day job.  I felt like I was putting fires out all day and never really accomplished anything.  That extends to the writing as well.  Between work and other commitments, there’s not been a lot of time for writing related work and I’ve had to [...]

Wasted Time – The Climb #1

Sunday 22nd January 2017 I wasted a lot of time today and although it was nobody’s fault it left me feeling a bit salty.  After not getting home from boardgaming until 2am, the 7:30am alarm was a bit brutal.  Whilst my mind can survive on 4 hours sleep, I’ve learned that my body needs at [...]

Announcing The Climb – My Little Blog Experiment

This is a very interesting time for my writing career. On one hand, it could be about to take a massive step forwards.  My agent might come back and say we’re ready to take to market.  Alternatively they might say there’s still some work to do.  And going forward, even if we take the book [...]

The Mountain

As I reach the end of the year, I find myself in the envious position that nearly everything I set out to do this year has been done.  I’m naturally feeling very pleased with myself, especially given how ambitious those targets were.  I now get to spend December relaxing (i.e. getting bored) working out my [...]

The Year Of Staying Hungry

In many ways this feels like an end of the year update, and in some ways it is.  Let me explain. As regular visitors know, rather than make new year’s resolutions, I give each year a theme.  The first year I did this was after being laid up with Leggeddon and so wanted a Year [...]
