2015 – The Year Of Hard Work

2015 was my Year of Hard Work. I had quite a simple philosophy, it would be the year I knuckle down and work my arse off. I’d follow up any opportunity and keep my irons in every available fire, so to speak. Having spent the previous year perfecting my organisation I was confident that I [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – September Report

No matter how well you plan or hard you work, there will be times when it all goes a bit wrong.  August was one of those months for me.  Pressure got to me and my work suffered because of it. What causes it doesn’t really matter.  It could be a bad review or a rejection.  [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – July Report

Things have been pretty quiet on the blog in the last month but that’s not because I’ve not been working hard, but because I’ve been focusing on the rewrite. Whereas previous months have a wide number of projects on the go, I’ve cleared my slate to just focus on Black As Knight. Looking back at [...]

Year Of Hard Work – June Report

In many ways, June was a funny old month.  From the perspective of my overall plan for the year, June was to be the month I knuckled back down after May’s storm chasing adventures.  My slow April had enforced that even more.  June was the time to launch myself into a new writing project and [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – May Report

I feel like I’ve been very lax lately.  Just writing this blog post feels like a lot of work.  I worked hard until Easter and then found myself treading water until I went Storm Chasing in May.  Of course, this meant that May has effectively been my month off – I can count the number [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – April Report

April saw the Year of Hard Work take a marked change as I moved from first drafts to editing and submissions. With hindsight I think I could have handled this a little better.  Project 4S surprised me with how well it went.  I’d honestly thought I’d blow past my initial deadline and finish it sometime [...]

Lessons Learnt – Why I’m An Idiot This Month

So far this year I’ve been blogging very much about the things that have been going right.  I know some of my friends have become secretly a little sick about hearing about my insane word count.  But a lot of this is unsailed terrirtory for me and as a result I do make mistakes. And [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – March Report

A quarter of the way through the year and things are going pretty well.  My aim was to get half a million words written this year and I’m already about half-way there. My YTD target for March was 225,000 with an outlier goal of quarter of a million.  Sadly I missed the quarter of a [...]
