Editing Action Scenes – Te Climb #304

Tuesday 22nd November 2017 I made good progress with the novel today.  Only 3 or 4 chapters, but progress is progress. It’s funny the things that can trip you up as you edit.  Case in point today.  I have a big action scene set on a carriage and I approach such scenes as if I [...]

Getting Stuck Into Edits – The Climb #303

Monday 20th November 2017 I always have such ambitious plans. I look at my week off and say I want to get the entire book edited in that time.  I sit down and calculate how many chapters that is a day, and remind myself that this is just a structural edit.  Given that I’ve learnt [...]

Back To The Edits – The Climb #302

Sunday 19th November 2017 Much to my annoyance there was no Sunday sparring today. Whilst I appreciate that it’s the day after Bucklerthon, I have Wessex Bath in less than a week and… well, I need to train. Perhaps a day off is what my body needs after a slew of tournaments but given I [...]

Exhausted & Lethargic – The Climb #293

Friday 10th November 2017 This has seemed like a long week.  I still feel exhausted after Swordfish. Whilst I’ve been getting the normal amount of sleep I’m not feeling refreshed when I wake up.  I have a tiredness that goes beyond pure sleep and I’ve been feeling drained all week.   Infact it goes back all [...]

Back To Editing – The Climb #292

Thursday 9th November 2017 So while I’ve been busy focusing on my swordfighting I’ve been thinking about book 2. I actually did some editing of the book today which I’m quite pleased about.  It was only a chapter, which isn’t a huge amount.  But I’m always slow to start after a break, and I thought [...]

The Focus For The Rest Of The Year – The Climb #290

Tuesday 7th November 2017 I ache. I cannot tell you how tired my body feels.  I woke up this morning feeling as tired as I did when I went to bed. Someone pointed out to me that it’s probably adrenaline.  I’ve been hyped up for competition and now it’s over I've just slumped.  I feel [...]

Why I Won’t Be Doing NaNoWriMo This Year – The Climb #283

Tuesday 31st October 2017 So I won’t be taking part in NaNoWriMo this year, and it saddens me. Whilst I’ve seen some authors moan about NaNo I think it serves a useful function.  It teaches you that a novel is the product of a lot of continuous work.  And whilst the result of NaNo is [...]

Feeling Unproductive – The Climb #272

Friday 20th October 2017 So I feel I’m not being productive of late.  Part of it is all the swordfighting activities.  What with Romania, Swordfish, Wessex league and all the training for those events, it feels like a lot of my focus has been sucked up. I have genuine nerves about Wessex League.  Up until [...]

Stranded In Swindon – The Climb #271

Thursday 19th October 2017 After last night’s beating, I’ve come to the conclusion that I really need to step up my training.  It’s less than a week until the next Wessex competition and if I want to win it I really need to pull something out the bag. I’m thinking of going up to London [...]
