May The Fourth Be With You – The Climb #103

Thursday 4th May 2017 Happy Star Wars Day everyone! I spent my day still feeling a bit glum and restless from the post-novel blues.  I can rationalise my petulance.    Having returned home late last night and then had to get up early for the day job meant that I was tired most of the day, [...]

Milestones – The Climb #100

Monday 1st May 2017 By my calculations, I have written over 20,000 words this weekend.  That’s taking into account Friday’s drunken antics, Saturday’s social and Sunday’s sparring.  But at the end of it, in this the 100th edition of The Climb, I can finally say it: The first draft of book 2 is done! As [...]

Nearing The End – The Climb #99

Sunday 30th April 2017 Some days writing is a joy, sometimes it’s a slog and as we approach the end of this draft and I push to get it finished, today has been very firmly on the slog end of the scale. It used to be that crappy chapter drafts bothered me.  I felt that [...]

Hangovers and Hard Work – The Climb #98

Saturday 29th April 2017 I woke at 4am with the view that perhaps my strategy of having a ‘blow out’ before a weekend of writing was a bad one.  I drank a load of water and felt queasy for about an hour, before falling back asleep. I woke at 8am, 12 hours after I not [...]

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 [...]

I Need To Change This… – The Climb #96

Thursday 27th April 2017 I dream of a day… I dream of a day when I can get more than five hours sleep before having to get up and ready for work.  I dream of an evening where upon coming back from town I have the energy to do more than just sit and procrastinate [...]

I Am Wolverine! – The Climb #95

Wednesday 26th April 2017 I’m going to be so knackered tomorrow.  It’s currently 1:45am as I sit down to start writing up The Climb and I’ve already had a really hectic day!  Although saying that, it was a collection of a number of small, random and relatively insignificant events rather anything I can really get [...]

Not Listening – The Climb #92

Sunday 23rd April 2017 There’s been a lot lost this weekend to procrastination / feeling exhausted and Sunday continued that trend a little. After scheduling yesterday’s edition of The Climb I got into the car and drove to go swordfighting.  Despite having a couple of energy drinks I felt sluggish today and I think it’s [...]

Why Does This Always Happen At Weekends? – The Climb #91

Saturday 22nd April 2017 It’s been an interesting but slightly unproductive day.  I slept in late because I really needed it.  I’m exhausted after the last week.  No way did it feel like a 4 day week. I got into a discussion online across several platforms on combat sports / martial arts.  I’m actually surprised [...]
