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 [...]

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 [...]
