Getting Back On The Horse – The Climb #171

Tuesday 11th July 2017 One of the outcomes from Leggedon was the need to be super organised.  I needed to take all manners of medication, ensure the leg got exercise, monitor and manage my food and a million other things.  On top of this, I had a broken novel that needed fixing, and so I [...]

Stuck Indoors – The Climb #168

Saturday 8th July 2017 I’ve been in a bit of a bad mood today. Aside from everything else that’s been going on over the last few days, I’ve been in a bit annoyed.  You see, it’s summer outside… the weather is fantastic.  I should be going to the beach and eating ice cream, especially given [...]

Crossing Into Enemy Territory – The Climb #167

Friday 7th July 2017 I continued to keep away from people today.  Following Wednesday night’s panic attack, I’ve seen my low turn into anger.  Mainly because it could have been avoided.  I’ve got a pretty thick skin and people can be pretty blunt around me, but having a go at me when I’m in an [...]

Self-Imposed Exile – The Climb #166

Thursday 6th July 2017 Today has been a bit of a down day. Following yesterday’s panic attack, I’ve been left a little flat and annoyed about a few things.  This has put me in a bit of a “fuck the world” mood which is never helpful and so I’ve kept away from people lest I [...]

The Delicate Editing Of Chapter One – The Climb #164

Tuesday 4th July 2017 I’ve been doing some delicate editing today. The first couple of chapters are the real challenge in this edit.  I have to make some subtle changes to blow the protagonist’s agency through the roof.  It basically means that his plans have to be a little more solid. Of course, this means [...]

Staying Motivated – The Climb #162

Sunday 2nd July 2017 I hate it when the weekend is over, especially when it’s a weekend where I’ve done little writing. However, with the knowledge that I’ve been feeling a bit run down together with the fact that I was seeing Danny yesterday, it made sense to take a little break and refresh ready [...]

Sucstress – The Climb #160

Friday 30th June 2017 I made up a word today. My friend (and author) Emma Newman was talking about that welcome stress you get when you’re doing something awesome but it’s still outside your comfort zone.  She was sure there’d be some German word for it, but I suggested we make one up. Sucstress I [...]

The Wartime General – The Climb #159

Thursday 29th June 2017 I think I burnt myself out a bit today.  I had a very active day where I was extremely focused but then never had any energy for the evening’s editing. The day job fun and games have continued today.  What started as demonstrating I had things under control within my department [...]

The Story Is King – The Climb #157

Monday 27th June 2017 I was having a bit of a panic this morning.  I woke to be no clearer about my quandary from yesterday.  My head was telling me to simplify relationships to make it easier for the reader, and yet my gut was telling me that the depth was in those characters and [...]

Trusting My Gut – The Climb #156

Monday 26th June 2017 Trusting your gut is a very scary thing, especially when the stakes are raised. I’ve gone through a few more pages today editing Black as Knight and I think I’ve found an area where my agent and I slightly diverge. For the most part, removing clauses and redundant sentences doesn’t bother [...]
