Feeling Lazy – The Climb #388

Tuesday February 13th 2018 I’m feeling so lazy of late. Part of this is the finger, which just isn’t right.  I keep soaking it, and the scabs are still falling away to reveal that it’s attached at an angle.  This means round the back there’s a gap. It’s painful… best described as pins and needles, [...]

Keeping A Diary – The Climb #387

Monday 12th February 2018 When I was young, I used to keep a diary.  Every night I would write about my day, as boring as it might be.  In many ways, The Climb is an extension of that, taking that documenting of a day and turning it into something very much focus on my writing [...]

A Day Of Consuming Media – The Climb #386

Sunday 11th November 2018 Today I’ve been really bored. I still think it’ll be a number of weeks before I start writing something new, and whilst I have a short story I need to work on, I was too restless for what is a delicate bit of prose.  And given I spent some time yesterday [...]

Continuing The Plotting – the Climb #385

Saturday 10th February 2018 It’s a pretty lazy weekend this weekend.  Fingergeddon means I’m still not fit to fight, and being on call with the day job means I can’t really go anywhere. So I spent a part of today working on the plot for book 3. I was working primarily with Scrivener’s corkboard feature [...]

Building The Plot For Book 3 – The Climb #384

Friday 10th February 2017 You’d think after my meeting with Kate yesterday on Book 2’s first draft that I’d be very much thinking about the subplot that needs replacing. But instead, I’ve almost pushed it to the back of my mind.  My creative process works best when it’s in the background. So the focus for [...]

Genesis Of A Character – The Climb #380

Monday 5th February 2018 Today I created a new character for book 3 and I wanted to spend a little time in today’s The Climb explaining my process of how I came up with them. This character will be a personal bodyguard for the Prince.  He’ll not only keep the Prince safe but be proactive [...]

Lazy Saturday – The Climb #378

Saturday 3rd February 2018 I feel like I’ve been really lazy this week.  Whilst there are some weeks where I don’t feel like I get a lot of things done, it’s not usually due to a lack of trying. Yet, this week.  I don’t think I’ll look back at this week and see it being [...]

The Need To Consume As A Writer – The Climb #377

Friday 2nd February 2018 If you want to be successful at anything, you pretty much have to follow the same pattern.  Whether it be in sports or creative arts or business, you need to work hard and put in years of grind (most of it unnoticed). That means sacrifice.  That means giving up some leisure [...]

Starting On A New Short Story – The Climb #371

Saturday 27th January 2018 Today has been quite a hectic day.  I actually managed to get a decent night’s sleep for a change.  I was then up and about trying to get some bits for dinner tonight where a friend came over for a meal and we watched IT. However, in amongst all the chaos, [...]

Restless – The Climb #363

Friday 19th January 2018 I’m a bad patient.  By all rights what I should be doing is enjoying the rest.  I’ve had a tough couple of weeks mentally and have no projects outstanding.  The sensible thing to do would be to rest, to gather my mental energy and just consume media ready for the next [...]
