You Can’t Write Car Chases – The Climb #26

Thursday 16th February 2017 I think you can tell when I’ve not written anything the day before as I’m always in a bad mood. Some people love to have written, but only writers love to write.  It took me a long time to realise that the feeling you get when everything feels like it’s not [...]

Investing For The Big Payoff Down The Line – The Climb #24

Tuesday 14th February 2016 I do sometimes worry that some days nothing exciting happens, that there’s no huge news or important revelations about writing the new novel or marketing the other one. But writing is like that.  Sure I try and make it entertaining, but I think The Climb isn’t something that something where you [...]

Sometimes Knowing It’s Supposed To Be Hard Makes The Job Easier – The Climb #23

Monday 13th February 2017 After last week, I’m keen for this week to be a productive week.  As a result, today was about getting a lot of shit that’s been hanging over me, done. I got some household admin out the way (paying my credit card and sending a birthday card to a relative) before [...]

You Can’t Be Brilliant Every Week – The Climb #22

Sunday 12th February 2017 Today I went and did a little sparring with friends. I think today showed me how much of an odd week this has been.  Unlike last week when my focus was laser sharp and I fenced probably the best I ever have, this week my mind wandered and as a result [...]

Fighting Hard – The Climb #20

Friday 10th February 2017 Thank fuck it’s Friday. I feel exhausted.  For the second day running I slept right through and even then I needed to drag myself out of bed. The day job involved solving a very complex problem and I probably could have solved it sooner had I not felt so emotionally drained.  [...]

The Dangers of Fame – The Climb #19

Thursday 9th February 2017 I’ve felt a lot more settled today.  After the rollercoaster of a week, I do still feel mentally shattered, but I managed to make today very productive. I’ve been doing some social media work.  Yesterday I had some ideas of what I need to do, and the big issue has been [...]

World-Class – The Climb #17

Tuesday 7th February 2017 My emotional rollercoaster of a week continues with the news today that I now officially have a world-ranking for swordfighting. I’ve known for a while that it was coming and whilst I don’t rank particularly high, I only really started competing last year.  But, I’d like to think that 12-year-old me [...]

I Started A Cult – The Climb #14

Saturday 4th February 2017 Today I started a cult whilst in the gym. Well not an actual cult… but a fictional one that will fit well into the novel.  As I was there pounding away on the treadmill I came up with the idea and saw loads of ways it could connect into not only [...]

The Year of The Offensive – January

January kicked off the way I hoped the year would, with an explosion of work.  After a mentally tough year of levelling up as a writer in 2016, I want 2017 to be a much more productive year (not that 2016 wasn’t productive, it was just slower than previous years). I kicked off (re)working on [...]
