Coming To A Head – The Climb #398

Friday 23rd February 2018 I feel like everything is coming to a head.  You know in those apocalyptic movies where all the signs of the impending cataclysm align?  Well, that seems to be my life right now. You see, I’m due feedback on my latest round of rewrites on Black as Knight.  I’m hoping that [...]

Earthquake! – The Climb #392

Saturday 17th February 2018 There’s something about an early start.  I’m usually too exhausted to get up really early, or instead find myself pottering around until it’s late in the day, but after returning from a friend’s house relatively early last night I got a decent night’s sleep and was walking to the supermarket to [...]

Gaining Some Direction – The Climb #391

Friday 16th February 2018 A plan is formulating that will hopefully see me back swordfighting and competing soon. The finger is slowly healing.  Over the past week I’ve seen a massive crack in the tip slowly fuse together and heal over.  It’s been quite miraculous to watch.  How do our bodies know to heal?  If [...]

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 [...]

Rearranging The Office – The Climb #379

Sunday 4th February 2018 Today I decided to tidy up my office space and create a second desk.  I’m playing games online with friends who live locally and it would be nice to be able to invite them around and have a social evening playing online together. I have a couple of old PCs, and [...]

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 [...]

February Could Be A Busy Month – The Climb #376

Thursday 1st February 2018 I went back to work too early.  I’ve never been one for being off ill and so I’ll drag myself back to work as soon as possible.  But my hand really wasn’t feeling up to a day of use. Over the last day or so I’ve typed a little, I’ve played [...]

The Walking Wounded – The Climb #374

Tuesday 30th January 2018 Today I hurt like someone who’d nearly chopped their finger off.  Now the shock has worn off. The hand really, really hurts. It’s not just the finger though… just trying to stretch my hand results in pain.  So typing hurts it (even if not using the finger), ALT-CTRL-DEL is next to [...]

I Severed My Finger – The Climb #373

Monday 29th January 2018 For someone who fights with blades I’m not very good with sharp objects. I had a major injury today and sliced a good chunk of my finger off, nail and all. The day job was really busy this morning.  We had a major incident that took a lot of our time [...]

A Day Of Progress – The Climb #372

Sunday 28th January 2018 I have two swordfighting competitions in the next month.  They’re not for my primary weapon type (rapier & dagger) so I’m not too worried about them.  My hope is that they are a way to ease myself back into competition. First I have the English Sidesword Open.  I’m fighting single sidesword [...]
