#Scotstober Day 21 #Weird

Today’s word is weird.

Weird doesn’t mean the same as it does in English. In Scots, it’s all about the supernatural. It means fate, destiny, fortune. Weird covers The Fates (like the weird Sisters), wizards, warlocks. It also means prophecy and prediction. If it’s magickal, supernatural, then weird is the word to use. My mum used to call my clothes, witchcraft books, and herbs, my weirdy gear. 😊 🧙

Here’s a link to more definitions for weird.

Well, that’s it for today’s #Scotstober post. See you tomorrow 😊

Ma wee, drummure weird (My wee, sad-looking wizard)

Author: Susan T. Braithwaite

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.​
