For my first microblogvember post, I’m going to mix it with my series of Scots posts.
Stay in Scots, sometimes spelt stey, means live (in a place), dwell, stay, stop.
“Ah stay in Glesca.” (I live in Glasgow.)

Royal Navy veteran from Scotland.
My journey into writing started with a screenwriting certificate program at UCLA Ext. Since then, I've worked as a freelance content writer, erotica author, proofreader, professional beta reader, and content editor. I'm now working hard on my dream writing career: romantic suspense author.
When I'm not writing, I can be found drinking too much coffee, obsessing over yarn, and planning world domination with my husband, jezbraithwaite.blog, and our squirrel army.

gordonmclean: @SusanB Love this, can’t wait to see more Scots. A language I know a little of but not enough (also, hi from Glasgow too!) via micro.blog
Jez Braithwaite 🏴: liked this. via twitter.com
smokey: @SusanB I’m really enjoying your and @JezB’s Scots posts; it’s interesting to see the similarities and differences. via micro.blog
SusanB: @gordonmclean Hi fellow Glaswegian! I’m sure you know plenty of Scots words just from speaking to folks in town.
It’s been fun relearning the words we were given into trouble for saying growing up—more posts soon. 😁
You should check out my hubby, JezB’s animals in Scots posts. via micro.blog
SusanB: @smokey I’m glad you’re enjoying it 😊 Yeah, Scots and English are closely related, but then there’s all these great words that are totally foreign to English—but totally normal for me. We’ve got loads of French, Dutch, and German derived words in the mix, too. via micro.blog
ddykstal: @SusanB Now I’m wondering how to pronounce Glaswegian. I can think of several ways. Probably none of those are correct. 😎 via micro.blog
SusanB: @ddykstal I’ve heard a few. It’s really nice and simple: Glaz-wee-juhn. via micro.blog
