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 [...]

Catching Up – A Mega Update

Hi there,   Adrian here.   I realise that after such a busy year on the blog last year, I’ve been very quiet this year. Some have asked me whether things are OK, and what’s happening with the Anarchy Books thing so I’ve tried to round everything up.   The tl;dr is that everything is [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – May Report

I feel like I’ve been very lax lately.  Just writing this blog post feels like a lot of work.  I worked hard until Easter and then found myself treading water until I went Storm Chasing in May.  Of course, this meant that May has effectively been my month off – I can count the number [...]

The Year Of Hard Work – April Report

April saw the Year of Hard Work take a marked change as I moved from first drafts to editing and submissions. With hindsight I think I could have handled this a little better.  Project 4S surprised me with how well it went.  I’d honestly thought I’d blow past my initial deadline and finish it sometime [...]

Thieving King Draft Complete – Achievement Unlocked

It's done! Well, done in the sense that I probably need to rewrite large sections of it and then edit it to within an inch of its life.  But I have a completed draft of The Thieving King as of the weekend. Needless to say that this has been my bastard book.  It's pushed me [...]

2015 – The Year Of Hard Work

I have to be honest – I’m going to miss 2014.  It was such a good year for me that it’s going to be hard to top.  I’d set out to have a Year of Adventure and I certainly managed that. In between all the house buying, tornado chasing, and sword stabbing I also managed [...]

The Final Act

There’s this misguided impression some people have that once you reach the status of semi-professionally published, writing a novel becomes a mundane affair.  Some people think that once you conquer the mountain that is the novel, all subsequent novels will be a piece of piss. This is absolute horseshit. […]
