Blown Away – The Climb #33

Thursday 24th 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 [...]

Honorary Canadian – The Climb #32

Wednesday 22nd February 2017 Today there was a lot of needless day job stress, which annoys me, because it’s not needed and my stomach felt like glass as a result for the rest of the day. It’s been odd in other ways.  As I went into the office a colleague asked me how I was. [...]

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 [...]

End Of A Busy Week – The Climb #27

Friday 17th February 2017 Today I spent most of the day in an office learning about the features of Windows Server 2016.  The traffic was terrible and I ended up 20 minutes late, which whilst nobody minded, just put me behind all day. This week has proved a busy work week with the day job [...]

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 [...]

92 Days And Counting… – The Climb #25

Wednesday 15th February 2017 I was reminded today that it’s only 92 days until I go storm chasing again. We’re doing something different this year.  Last year was high octane insanity.  We were driving at tornadoes coming towards us, jumping out the van to get video and photos and then dashing away at the last [...]

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 [...]
