    Taking Aim

    Advertisements 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 […]

  • Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Gaither

    Advertisements 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 […]

  • Things in Scots: Gies a Scots Phrase Day

    Advertisements 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! As I can’t think of a complete Scots phrase in Running the Asset (off the top of my), other than stick the heid oan, I’ll share this one with you.

  • Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Bide

    Advertisements Hiya! It’s getting pretty hard to find a Scots word in the manuscript that doesn’t contain spoilers. 😬 Even though this one comes from later in the story, it’s not much of a spoiler, thankfully! Here’s the snippet… (mid-editing draft!)

  • Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Mibbe

    Advertisements Hiya! I thought I’d open this week’s post with a huge thanks to everyone who gave me feedback on the stick the heid oan post. You’ve saved my future readers a big headache (😂 ) in figuring out what it means. There are a couple of ways to deal with it, either I mention […]

  • Things in Scots: Photie

    Advertisements Today is a special day for me and my beloved, Jez. It’s our 25th-year together-versary (totally a word)–and tomorrow is our 19th wedding anniversary. I’d had today’s word down for a TiS: Running the Asset post, but I kept thinking about Jez’s site each time I sat down to write the post. So, what […]

  • Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Stick the Heid Oan

    Advertisements I swithered over posting this one or not, mainly because of the length of the post’s title. Ultimately, I decided to share this because it’s one of those phrases that I don’t think twice about using when I’m writing. I’ve always felt that it’s an easily translatable phrase, but I started to think of […]

  • Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Polis

    Advertisements I’m not having a high-level brain fart. I know I just posted Wummin on Monday, but for the last month or so, I’ve been toying with switching my posting days around. I usually post TiS on a Monday and a What I’m Reading post (when I have time to read) on a Friday. I […]

  • Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Wummin

    Advertisements It’s the first TiS of May, so I thought I’d ease us in with a nice easy one. Here’s the snippet… (unedited first draft)

  • Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Dinnae

    Advertisements This week’s word is super easy. I had a different word in mind for today, but the snippet was full of spoilers 😬 And, as I can’t search for just italics in Scrivener, I thought I’d cheat and go with a nice easy one. Here’s the snippet… (unedited first draft)
