Something Has To Give – The Climb #73

Tuesday 4th April 2017 I came  to a realisation today that something is going to have to give in the near future. My original plan was that when the editorial comments came back I would take a couple of weeks off the day job and get them complete.  After my challenging 2016, I want to [...]

The Calm Before The Storm – The Climb #72

Monday 3rd April 2017 Today was one of those days where it felt like it was going to be a quiet day and then in the last couple of hours a few major things happened.  So you get a bumper edition today (and that’s with a few things being pushed to tomorrow) Those who’ve been following [...]

A Very Productive Tuesday – The Climb #66

Tuesday 28th March 2017 Today has been an incredibly busy and productive day. I woke up late this morning.  Thankfully I could pretty much start the day job by rolling out of bed.  It’s probably a sign of just how tired I am. I logged onto my personal computer to find a load of comments [...]

Progress Over Perfection – The Climb #65

Monday 27th March 2017 I had a very strange drive home tonight.  I’d taken the video camera with me to training to get some footage of me fighting.  My gorilla pod turned up today and I put the video camera on the end. But I’m very self-conscious about filming in public and on the drive [...]

The Self-Doubt Of A Writer On The Verge – The Climb #62

Friday 24th March 2017 Today was a day of doubt and a lesson in patience. The day job was a bit busy today.  I seem to have run out of youtube videos from the people I follow, and so the day seemed to drag.  I then had to go grocery shopping, cook dinner and get [...]

Officially Badass – The Climb #59

Tuesday 21st March 2017 I felt a little better today, and I think I’ve pinpointed the cause. Over the last few months, I’ve added caffeine back into my diet.  This has usually come in the form of diet cokes or diet energy drinks.  Considering I used to drink at least a 2 litre bottle of [...]

Sick As A Dog – The Climb #57

Sunday 19th March 2017 I should have known that going out last night was a bad idea.  Today my stomach has probably been the worst it’s been in ages and I’m putting it down to not letting it fully recover from last week before feeding it a ton of carbs in the pub last night.  [...]

Pattern Recognition – The Climb #55

Friday 17th March 2017 If you're trying to understand what I'm trying to do in this window between rewrites and submission, I think today's issue gives some real depth. Many years ago I worked for a youth voluntary organisation.  I had some great times, met people who are some of my closest friends even to [...]

Levelling Up – The Climb #54

Thursday 16th March 2017 First day back at work after my forced illness break and I ‘ve been feeling the worst I’ve felt all week. I feel like I have a head cold.  My throat is so sore I’ve almost lost my voice and my eyes feel heavy with manflu.  As I said to someone [...]

The Micro And The Macro – The Climb #50

Sunday 12th March 2017 I had originally planned that issue 50 of The Climb would be my manifesto issue, where I would state my objectives and aims as a writer.  But then I realised that my blog post on The Year of the Offensive was just that. And so I was stuck for what to [...]
