How I Write – The Climb #98

Friday 28th April 2017 As you know, I like to write each edition of The Climb at the end of the day and then edit the next day.  In the interests of full disclosure, this one was written at the start of the next day (for reasons you’ll find out). My current schedule is leaving [...]

The Self-Doubt Of A Writer On The Verge – The Climb #62

Friday 24th March 2017 Today was a day of doubt and a lesson in patience. The day job was a bit busy today.  I seem to have run out of youtube videos from the people I follow, and so the day seemed to drag.  I then had to go grocery shopping, cook dinner and get [...]

The Micro And The Macro – The Climb #50

Sunday 12th March 2017 I had originally planned that issue 50 of The Climb would be my manifesto issue, where I would state my objectives and aims as a writer.  But then I realised that my blog post on The Year of the Offensive was just that. And so I was stuck for what to [...]

The Year of the Offensive – February

In many ways, February was an odd month.  Looking back I think my diagnosis at the end of January really affected me.  It’s not that anything really changed.  If anything my health has got better rather than worse over the last few years.  But I still can’t eat beef without piling on a couple of [...]

Turning Up – The Climb #36

Sunday 26th February 2017 Today has been fuelled by Monster energy drinks. I set my alarm early this morning so I woke up in time to go to swordfighting training.  I was very tempted to give it a miss.  After all, it’s not like I ever miss training when loads of other people do. But [...]

Fireball Friday – The Climb #34

Friday 24th February 2017 Today the day job robbed me of my mental energy. I spent most of Friday in the day job doing some training with Microsoft.  It was a great, intense 1-on-1 session but I need to write up the notes to ensure the training goes in and I can share the knowledge [...]

End Of A Busy Week – The Climb #27

Friday 17th February 2017 Today I spent most of the day in an office learning about the features of Windows Server 2016.  The traffic was terrible and I ended up 20 minutes late, which whilst nobody minded, just put me behind all day. This week has proved a busy work week with the day job [...]

Announcing The Climb – My Little Blog Experiment

This is a very interesting time for my writing career. On one hand, it could be about to take a massive step forwards.  My agent might come back and say we’re ready to take to market.  Alternatively they might say there’s still some work to do.  And going forward, even if we take the book [...]

The Mountain

As I reach the end of the year, I find myself in the envious position that nearly everything I set out to do this year has been done.  I’m naturally feeling very pleased with myself, especially given how ambitious those targets were.  I now get to spend December relaxing (i.e. getting bored) working out my [...]

The Year Of Staying Hungry

In many ways this feels like an end of the year update, and in some ways it is.  Let me explain. As regular visitors know, rather than make new year’s resolutions, I give each year a theme.  The first year I did this was after being laid up with Leggeddon and so wanted a Year [...]
