You Can’t Be Brilliant Every Week – The Climb #22

Sunday 12th February 2017 Today I went and did a little sparring with friends. I think today showed me how much of an odd week this has been.  Unlike last week when my focus was laser sharp and I fenced probably the best I ever have, this week my mind wandered and as a result [...]

Fighting Hard – The Climb #20

Friday 10th February 2017 Thank fuck it’s Friday. I feel exhausted.  For the second day running I slept right through and even then I needed to drag myself out of bed. The day job involved solving a very complex problem and I probably could have solved it sooner had I not felt so emotionally drained.  [...]

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 [...]

A Quieter Day – The Climb #18

Wednesday 8th February 2017 After the rollercoaster of the start of this week, today was quite an ordinary day.  Quite quiet as well (although I’m not complaining) I’m still in a bit of a weird mood and it wasn’t helped by various things eating into my day and writing time. I made up for it [...]

World-Class – The Climb #17

Tuesday 7th February 2017 My emotional rollercoaster of a week continues with the news today that I now officially have a world-ranking for swordfighting. I’ve known for a while that it was coming and whilst I don’t rank particularly high, I only really started competing last year.  But, I’d like to think that 12-year-old me [...]

The Rollercoaster of Life – The Climb #16

Monday 6th February 2017 Today I’ve been wondering when confidence becomes ego. There’s this old joke I always tell whenever anyone paid me a compliment.  It’s probably me deflecting my embarrassment of being unable to handle praise, but I always reply “and I’m really, really modest”.  Most people get it, and even if they don’t [...]

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 [...]
