The Time Draws Near – The Climb #112

Saturday 13th May 2017 I’m at that stage where I’m panicking that I’ve forgotten something.  Case in point today.  I worried that I needed some more trousers.  Whilst storm chasing , the weather can be very hot, it can be wet, it can be messy.  And so the trousers I normally wear are not really [...]

The Edits Are Back! – The Climb #111

Friday 12th May 2017 *ALERT* *ALERT* The Edits Are Back *ALERT* *ALERT* Yes, folks, we’re on Defcon 1 here as I have received a large chunk of my editorial notes from my agent today.  Oh, can you smell the fear? On one hand I’m really excited to get them back.  These notes are a fantastic [...]

The Royal Secret Cabal Of Cake Club – The Climb #110

Thursday 11th May 2017 Rather oddly, a few days before I travel to Canada and the US, I feel the need for a health kick.  My diet has been pretty good for the last year but the major thing I did was give up caffeine. For the first couple of weeks I was a total [...]

Stop Worrying About The Long Term Forecast – The Climb #109

Wednesday 10th May 2017 I woke up with a scratchy throat this morning and I wonder if this touch of illness has put me a little off colour today. This has been the first day where I really didn’t enjoy vlogging.  Maybe the novelty has worn off but I found I was asking myself why [...]

How to Progress Towards Goals – The Climb #108

Tuesday 9th May 2017 It suddenly feels like everything has kicked up a gear. I’ve been very busy over the last couple of days having started the vlogs, but yesterday, it felt like the only thing there was to talk about were the vlogs themselves.  In terms of things actually happening, there wasn’t very much [...]

I Became A Vlogger – The Climb #107

Monday 8th May 2017 And like that, I’m suddenly a vlogger! Whilst I’ve been filming content since Saturday, the first vlog didn’t go live until late last night.  And I woke this morning to find the reception has been very positive. I’m very much framing this exercise as a precursor to chasing.  I have no [...]

I’ve Got This In The Bag – The Climb #105

Saturday 6th May 2017 Today was a busy and productive day although it was mainly focused on preparations for Chasepalooza! My first order of business was editing The Climb for today.  I’d done the graphic yesterday so that was pretty quick to schedule, which is just as well as I had a bit of a [...]

Revenge Of The Fifth – The Climb #104

Friday 5th May 2017 As you know, I’ve been watching a lot of vlogs recently.  I quite like them because they’re easy content to have on in the background when you’re working on something else.  I’m also fascinated by the storytelling element of them.  Writing The Climb each day, I’ve been acutely aware that the [...]
