When I saw my last photo of July, I had to post it for Brian’s Last on the Card challenge. There’s no better motivator than a mid-workday Halo break–die Covenant scum! 🎮
After a slightly extended break from the blog–I’ve been working away in the background–I thought I’d ease back into posting by participating in my wonderful husband, Jez’s, weekly Fan Of… challenge.
Now, I’m slightly cheating here, but only slightly. We like a lot of the same things… so it’ll be no surprise that I’m also a fan of the Album Pathway in Glasgow.Continue reading “Fan Of… Album Pathway“
Hiya! Happy Friday, and welcome to the latest edition of Things in Scots. This week’s Scots word is swatch (pronounced swaah-ch).
Today’s snippet is from the beginning of Act Two A of Running the Asset.Continue reading “Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Swatch“
Welcome to another Things in Scots. This week’s Scots word is chitterin. The snippet I’ve added is a bit longer than I normally add. But, if I’d kept it short, it would have lost a lot of the feel and flavour of the scene.
If you’ve been enjoying the audio companions, I hope you’ll enjoy my first foray into doing the whole video thing below.😬 (There may or may not be a whole lot of outtakes for some later date. 🤣)
Oh, yeah, it’s a wee bittie sweary and… intense.Continue reading “Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Chitterin“
Welcome to another edition of “Things in Scots”! This week’s Scots word is claes. The snippet is from the second half of Running the Asset’s manuscript.
But before we get into the nitty-gritty of this week’s Scots word, let’s set the scene.
Adam and Elle have just been caught in Trevor’s office (Elle’s boss and our bad guy). They’ve managed to talk their way out of it by the skin of their teeth… or have they?Continue reading “Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Claes“
Welcome to this week’s edition of “Things in Scots”! Are you ready for a new word to add to your growing Scots vocabulary? Of course, you are. This week’s word is “faut”, and let me tell you, it’s a doozy!Continue reading “Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Faut“
Welcome to the first Things in Scots of 2023! It’s so great to be back doing these. I thought I’d give my old 2019 format a go for a change. That format being text with companion audio.
This week’s Scots word is wheech. The excerpt is from my current work-in-progress (WIP), Running the Asset.Continue reading “Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Wheech“
I thought that it was about time to get back to the site. Instead of jumping back in with one of my regular post series–I’m still taking a break from work at the moment–I wanted to do something a wee bittie different.
Even though I’m more comfortable aiming down range than I am down a camera lens, I’ve decided to step out of my comfort zone and take part in this week’s Lens Artist challenge–guest hosted by my beloved, Jez.Continue reading “Taking Aim“
It’s another Things in Scots day, or Friday if you want to call it that. 😁 As I mentioned in previous posts, it’s challenging to find snippets that don’t contain spoilers… or torrid sex scenes. 😈 But, I managed to find something that doesn’t give anything away, and it doesn’t have anything more than some naughty thoughts going on in the text.
Here’s the snippet… (mid-editing draft!)Continue reading “Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Gaither“
According to Scottish Twitter, it’s #GiesAScotsPhraseDay (give us a Scots phrase) today! And, luckily for me, it’s a Things in Scots post day!Continue reading “Things in Scots: Gies a Scots Phrase Day“
