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 [...]

Running Late For Physio – The Climb #255

Tuesday 3rd October 2017 Today has been a very busy day.  I had to be up early to go back to physio… and of course, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. I felt I gave myself enough time, but for some reason getting showered and dressed always takes me more time that I [...]

Here We Go Again – The Climb #253

Sunday 1st October 2017 So my September break is now over and tonight I’ve dived back into book 2 to start work on the second draft. In many ways, this forced break has been a bit torturous.  Sometimes I think I need a stress to keep my mind off other stresses, and without a book [...]

Making Plans – The Climb #245

Saturday 23rd September 2017 I had planned to have a busy day tidying the house.  Given all the tournaments and edits of recent weeks I actually had a day where I didn’t have to do anything. But despite doing nothing for 3 days earlier this week with my cold, it seemed my body just wanted [...]

Desk Work – The Climb #244

Friday 22nd September 2017 Urgh!  I’ve only been back at the day job for 2 days and already the weekend couldn’t come quick enough.  I’ve decided that I have a new pet hate.  It’s when you get asked to do a job in a rush… because the information is needed urgently. There’s a large part [...]

The Product Of Hard Work – The Climb #239

Sunday 17th September 2017 There was a time when I got excited about birthdays.  Now they just make me feel old. I’d not really planned to do anything for my birthday today.  I’d figured I would be knackered from yesterday’s tournament and would want a quiet one.  I was, however, determined to make it to [...]

Method Writing – The Climb #235

Wednesday 13th September 2017 You’ve probably heard of method acting.  This is where an actor is so mentally invested in a role that even when not playing them they take on some of the characteristics.  It’s considered by many to be a very in-depth form of acting. I think I method write.  This occurred to [...]
