The Secret To Great Characters – The Climb #90

Friday 21st April 2017 If there’s been a theme to today it’s been about character arcs.  That and feeling totally exhausted. The main reason they’ve been on my mind is that I was thinking back to the greatest swordfight ever written that I drafted yesterday.  Overall, I don’t think it’s bad but something was bothering [...]

Hold My Beer… – The Climb #89

Thursday 20th April 2017 Today was a tiring day Despite a late night, I needed to be in an office early.  This did nothing for my mood.  It doesn’t take a lot of make me grumpy:  lack of sleep, lack of food, lack of anything.  I had two bowls of porridge in the hope it [...]

Turning Adversity Into Advantage – The Climb #87

Tuesday 18th April 2017 It always amazes me when people actively get in the way of your aims.  I have a hard job understanding why.  It’s almost as if they resent the fact that they acknowledge your progress. They’ll actively throw roadblocks in your way, sometimes under the guise that they think it will help [...]

The Last Convention? – The Climb #85

Sunday 16th April 2017 I’m wondering if this might be the last great convention.  I’ve had a blast this Easter weekend, and it’s felt very business heavy (in a good way) but what’s been noticeable is the absence of pros.  As we said to Steve, he’s probably one of the most high profiles names here [...]

A Waste Of A Work Day – The Climb #81

Wednesday 12th April 2017 Today was a complete waste of a day. It started well.  Given the phone call I had with my boss yesterday evening I never got time to write.  It’s rare I do any extracurricular work but with a few things going on I thought it would probably be best to make [...]

Popping Into Focus – The Climb #78

Sunday 9th April 2017 One thing has been on my mind all throughout a very busy day today.  Plotting out these next two chapters last night, I had a problem where I need a secondary character to not be in the scenes. That sounds simple, right?  Just omit him, or say he’s doing something.  Trouble [...]

I Needed To Do This – The Climb #77

Saturday 8th April 2017 Today has seen some glorious weather.  We’re finally into the season where you can go out in just a T-Shirt and not feel cold.  It’s a sign that summer is well on its way. And how do I know this?  Was it because I spent all day in the sunshine?  Or was [...]

Positivity Challenged – The Climb #76

Friday 7th April 2017 The issues with the day job that I talked about yesterday put me in a strange mood today.  As a result I got very little day job work done. It also had the knock-on effect on my writing as well. I had a big Amazon delivery arrive today.  I got a [...]

The Path Of Least Resistance – The Climb #75

Thursday 6th April 2017 The day job has been a bit annoying today.  Every so often they do something that really stresses me out.  Part of the problem is that their HR is pretty poor and the way they handle things is terrible. I’m trying to be a good employee whilst also going full-in on [...]

I’m Going To Upset A Few People – The Climb #74

Wednesday 5th April 2017 I usually stay away from debate on the internet.  It’s not that I don’t care about certain causes, but I figure I have only a certain amount of mental energy and I need most of that to work on my own projects.  I figure it’s also better for my sanity. But [...]
