How I Write – The Climb #97

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 Financial Reality Of Being A Writer – The Climb #80

Tuesday 11th April 2017 One of the big life aims of most writers is to one day earn enough from your writing that you could do it full-time.  For most writers it’s the impossible dream.  Even if you are able to get a book deal that pays you an advance, to earn one that actually [...]

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 [...]

Snatching Victory From The Jaws OF A Defeat Snatched From The Jaws Of Success – The Climb #49

Saturday 11th March 2017 Today say I snatched victory from the jaws of a defeat snatched from the jaws of success Today started well, got decidedly worse and then improved.  I woke up to some non-writing news that was amazing, resulting in me being very excited.  However, this quickly turned into a complete disaster and [...]

There’s A Pattern To Success – The Climb #44

Monday 6th March 2017 After my spate of productivity yesterday I didn’t feel I got much done today. I did clear off a number of work-related tasks so I suppose there was that but I’m very much aware of how many things I want to be doing (finishing this novel, writing a couple of short [...]

An Insanely Productive Day – The Climb #43

Sunday 5th March 2017 I definitely think I’m starting to feel better as is evidenced by the insane amount of work I got done today. I woke up actually not feeling tired for the first time in ages, despite going to bed totally exhausted.  I did a bit of editing on the latest version of [...]

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 [...]

Battling On – The Climb #38

Tuesday 28th February 2017 I’ve not been feeling better fatigue-wise and so, given that I am supposed to have a follow-up hospital appointment 6 weeks after my last one 5 weeks ago, I decided to chase up where the appointment had got to.  I was hoping that it had just got lost in the post, [...]

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 [...]
