Hungover Saturday – The Climb #35

Saturday 25th February 2017 I’m not really a great drinker any more. I’d go out and get pissed with my mates when I was in my 20's but as I’ve got older, and especially in the last year when I’ve been eating and drinking healthy, I probably have a drink once a month. Friday night… [...]

Blown Away – The Climb #33

Thursday 23rd February 2017 Today was the day of the infamous Storm Doris.  I was therefore a little disappointed to step out this morning to collect the bin I’d put out for the binmen to find it still standing upright.  Someone told me to be careful because of the winds.  I raised an eyebrow at this. [...]

Body Positive – The Climb #30

Monday 20th February 2017 I’ve now been doing The Climb for 30 days and that in itself has been an interesting journey. I liked the idea of documenting my journey, capturing my mood and what was on my mind day to day.  I knew some days would be a little lean.  I knew some days [...]

Rough & Tumblrs – The Climb #29

Sunday 19th February 2017 In which I discover that if I fight for 2 solid hours and dehydrate, my face ends up looking like a prune! Today’s been a good day. I’ve come to the conclusion that my potential reader-base is on Tumblr and I need to create one.  But just as silly personal content [...]

Progress Is Progress Is Progress – The Climb #28

Saturday 18th February 2017 Given how last week I slept in until the afternoon and how knackered I was feeling after this past week, I’d not planned to accomplish much on Saturday.  However, I woke at 9am (which wasn’t that late given how late I’d gone to bed) and despite trying to get back to [...]

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.  [...]
