Racing To The End – The Climb #357

Saturday 13th January 2018 I’ve not really been in the mood to be sociable today.  A combination of factors have sent my anxiety sky high and it was only as I prepare to go to bed that I realise that  I’ve been having an anxiety attack for the past three days. I’ve been trying to [...]

Diversionary Tactics – The Climb #356

Friday 12th January 2018 I could talk today about my sadness, about how parts of my life I keep out of The Climb have become complex and difficult.  Instead,  I will just say that I live a normal human life with all the ups and heartbreaks and I’m not sure where in it’s arc that [...]

Dealing With Negative People – The Climb #354

Wednesday 10th January 2018 I went into the office today.  For my day job I work from home a lot but I do sometimes go into the office. I tend to keep my private life and work life very separate.  I don’t really talk about the day job here, and I don’t talk much about [...]

A Day Of Unexpected Editing – The Climb #353

Tuesday 9th January 2018 I’ve been feeling pretty invisible today.  I’m waiting on an email and a friend who’s currently without a mobile and said there was a 50/50 chance they’d come round, didn’t.  I’ve also been monitoring how much stress the day job gives me, and have watched my levels rise in the last [...]

Evolution Of The Magic – The Climb #352

Monday 8th January 2018 Achieving anything worthwhile is hard.  It takes a lot of work and persistence.  There are days when you feel super-motivated, and there are days when your confidence is knocked. Publishing is a great example.  You have to believe that you have a great book in you.  You need that supreme confidence [...]

Making Priorities – The Climb #351

Sunday 7th January 2018 Today was the first time I needed to think about my priorities. 2018 is my year of priorities, it’s about ensuring that as I get busier that I focus on the important things and don’t worry so much about the minor stuff. And today there was a hard choice to be [...]

Cooking And Editing – The Climb #350

Saturday 6th January 2018 It’s been a bit of a hectic day today. It seems like it’s been ages since I had a free weekend.  There always seems to be some event on, or on call work with the day job, or a tournament or the like.  I have sparring tomorrow but given that it’s [...]

The Dresden Reread – The Climb #349

Friday 5th January 2018 One of the things I really wasn’t happy about last year was how little I read.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to read – I bought a ton of books.  I just never found the time in between edits and tournaments to really sit down days in succession and read. [...]

Adventures In Brimstone – The Climb #348

Thursday 4th January 2018 As I’ve previously said, I end up buying a load of boardgames on kickstarter.   They are amazing value for money but I do end up going all in, which means I really should be playing them some more. Currently, the only time I get to play is when my friends come [...]

Getting Organised for 2018 – The Climb #347

Wednesday 3rd January 2018 My main aim for this week is to get my ToDo list up to date. I have been a long time user of ToDoist and have processes for tracking and progressing tasks.  It’s pretty effective and has allowed me to be super-productive in recent years.  I don’t just use it for [...]
