I Never Thought I’d Love This So Much – The Climb #145

Thursday 15th June 2017 OK, I never thought I’d say this but… editing is fun. I’ve done about 50 pages today.  This puts me about 100 pages in out of 723.  I say ‘about’ as I have to expand a scene and so I need to break from the line edits briefly to bring an [...]

Producing Something Of Quality – The Climb #144

Wednesday 14th June 2017 This is the story of two different stresses that happened today. The first is stress about the novel.  As you have seen over the last few days there’s a ton of work to do and things I’m not sure about.  It’s possible it’s just me worrying about nothing, but I’ve been [...]

I Knew – The Climb #143

Tuesday 13th June 2017 There’s part of me that feels like The Climb is very repetitive at the moment.  For what seems like a long time (but in reality is probably 3 or 4 days) I’ve been reporting on the edits, how I find it tough but also fun and how I am soldiering on. [...]

Editing A Novel Is Like Going To The Gym – The Climb #142

Monday 12th June 2017 Editing the novel is currently a bit like going to the gym.  There’s a huge part of you that’s put off by the idea.  It’ll hurt, it’s a lot of effort.  But at the same time you know it’s something you need to do in order to reach your goals.  And [...]

Making Some Hard Choices – The Climb #141

Sunday 11th June 2017 Editing is simultaneously both fun and incredibly hard.  Mentally, I’m deep into the line edits although in terms of number of chapters I’m still very near the beginning and I’m finding some of the changes really challenging. It’s not because they are difficult, per say, it’s just that they are making [...]

Lost Time – The Climb #140

Saturday 10th June 2017 Today was given over to writing, and yet I worked out I really only had 2 solid hours in which to get any work done. I woke late.  My sleeping patterns have still not recovered since getting back from Canada and so I find myself going to bed later and waking [...]

Learning To Listen To My Gut – The Climb #139

Friday 9th May 2017 Some days are just unproductive, even though want of trying. Today’s plan was to get the ball scene done.  In many ways it’s a simple change.  Currently hero stumbles across information at the ball.  Instead, he has to go seek it out. It should be a simple change but it’s going [...]

I Can’t Believe How Scary This Is – The Climb #138

Thursday 8th June 2017 I’ve managed to do a lot more editing today, and it’s been very scary.  For the first part of this week it’s been both scary and fun.  Today it was just scary. Today I well and truly stepped outside my comfort zone. I needed to move a scene to another part [...]

A Different Way Of Editing – The Climb #136

Tuesday 6th May 2017 I’ve been editing in an entirely new way today. Usually, when I have a major edit to do, I’ll start at the beginning and work my way towards the end.  I like working that way as it gives me somewhat of a sense of security.  It means that I can check [...]

The Grind Starts Here – The Climb #135

Monday 5th June 2017 You know that meme where someone is returning back to work after holiday wondering “how they got on without me?”  They open the door to the office to see a post-apocalyptic wasteland, people running around on fire, others pulling their hair out screaming, you get the picture.  This was my day [...]
