Constantly Growing – The Climb #208

Thursday 17th August 2017 I made some good progress on the edits today.  I would have liked to have done more since I have a dozen chapters left, but the two I did was progress. I had to rewrite the start of the first of the two chapters this evening.  As I mentioned in a [...]

I Need To Read More – The Climb #207

Wednesday 16th August 2017 I’ve had a day where an unintentional slight that actually worked in my favour really bothered me. I turned up to training tonight thinking I was going to be teaching to find I wasn’t.  That in itself doesn’t bother me.  I always said I would teach for a 6 month block [...]

Good Editing Progress – The Climb #206

Tuesday 15th August 2017 It’s gone 1:30am and it looks like I’m going to have to leave finishing editing this consolidated chapter until tomorrow. I can’t complain though as progress, whilst slow, has been good.  I’m still being quite ruthless, and seem to be succeeding in my aim of trimming the wordcount.  I was helped [...]

Change Of Focus – The Climb #205

Monday 14th August 2017 With Fightcamp now over, my focus is now starting to change, so that the edits of Black as Knight once again become my main focus. Whilst the first Wessex League tournament is a little over a month away, now the two big UK competitions of the year are over, I can [...]

Fire And Fury – The Climb #200

Wednesday 9th August 2017 So you expect to have a bad night fighting before a tournament right?  It’s a thing.  It’s totally a thing.  Oh, how I sucked today. The day started well with progress on consolidating the three chapters.  I nearly completed the second third of this, but I ran out of time and [...]

My Editing Has Levelled Up – The Climb #199

Tuesday 8th August 2017 I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather today.  There’s a gastric flu going around and it says something about how bad my stomach issues are when I’m not sure if I have a bad case of it or my stomach is just flaring up. As a result I’ve felt a [...]

Positive Distraction – The Climb #198

Monday 7th August 2017 By rights I should be writing about the chapter consolidation work I did today.  I should write about how I paired down some of the emotion whilst trying to still have the same impact as previous drafts. I should also be stressing over the next part of this new chapter.  I [...]

Nothing Is Ever Broken – The Climb #196

Saturday 5th August 2017 Today has been all about one thing:  fixing chapter one. In truth, this has meant spending 95% of the day thinking about it and about 5% of the day actually making changes. But this chapter has become a bugbear of mine, and editing it again has been as much a psychological [...]

Gang Aft Agley – The Climb #194

Thursday 3rd August 2017 It’s fair to say that today has not been a good day. There are a number of reasons, and whilst none of them was enough to ruin my Thursday single-handedly, collectively they managed to do it. I found myself lacking motivation in the gym today.  Normally, I’ll moan and grumble, but [...]

The Benefits Of Long Drives – The Climb #193

Wednesday 2nd August 2017 I do a lot of travel.  If I go into the day job office it’s a good hour by car, and swordfighting training can be anything up to 2 hours depending on where I’m going. However, I must admit that I don’t mind the drives.  In fact they can be quite [...]
