The Year of The Offensive – January

January kicked off the way I hoped the year would, with an explosion of work.  After a mentally tough year of levelling up as a writer in 2016, I want 2017 to be a much more productive year (not that 2016 wasn’t productive, it was just slower than previous years). I kicked off (re)working on [...]

Getting Political – The Climb #10

Tuesday 31st January 2017 Today I spent a lot of time arguing politics on the internet. I’ll be honest that I’ve never been a very political person.  I think that comes from growing up pretty privileged.  I used to subscribe to the notion to never talk politics or religion but changed my opinion probably in [...]

Fighting Hard – The Climb #8

Sunday 29th January 2017 Today has been all about fighting. I went sparring with other swordfighters today.  Unlike last week (see The Climb #1) we had a good turnout and so I got a lot of fights in.  I’m a naturally defensive fighter so my aim for this year is to become much more offensive.  [...]

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 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 [...]

August 2016 Update

Blogging just seems to be one of those things that has got away from me this year.  Whilst I’ve sometimes taken the lazy man’s option of posting an image to Instagram, I’ve not been as good as I was last year with monthly updates.  Ironically, it’s because I’ve been so busy that I’ve not been [...]

Catching Up – A Mega Update

Hi there,   Adrian here.   I realise that after such a busy year on the blog last year, I’ve been very quiet this year. Some have asked me whether things are OK, and what’s happening with the Anarchy Books thing so I’ve tried to round everything up.   The tl;dr is that everything is [...]

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 [...]
