Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Chitterin

Hiya!

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.

Hiya 👋

Last week was one of those weeks where I felt like I wasn’t making any real progress. I was getting work done, but it felt like wading through porridge that’s been left on the side for so long that you could set fence posts in it.

Have you ever had those weeks? I seem to get them a lot.

Anyway, last week I added my non-fiction writing goals into the mix. That could be what made things feel so slow and weird.

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Claes

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?

Hiya 👋

I hope you all had a fantastic week because I certainly did! This week was one of the most productive weeks I’ve had in months, and I have yet another secret project to share with you.

Last week, I mentioned I was working on a series of blog posts about writing romantic suspense. What I didn’t say was I’m also working on a non-fiction book series to help other romantic suspense writers.

When I say “working on,” I mean I’ve mapped out an eight-book series that’s easy to digest, with each book being around 20-30K words.

Hiya, everyone!

I hope you’re all doing well and had a great week. Last week was a wee bit of a mixed bag for me. I got sucked into another project and didn’t manage to meet the goals I set for myself. But you know what? I’m not too upset about it.

Introducing a New Series for Romantic Suspense Writers

That project I got sucked into? It’s a new series of blog posts on writing romantic suspense… with a side of action-adventure and spies. I’ll be sharing them with all of you starting in February. As you may have guessed, I’m a big fan of the genre, and Running the Asset is firmly in it 😁.

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Wheech

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.

The audio version of this post.

This week’s Scots word is wheech. The excerpt is from my current work-in-progress (WIP), Running the Asset.

Hiya, Everyone! 👋

I’m back! I can’t tell you how excited I am to finally get back to working on Running the Asset. If you could see how big my smile is as I write this, then you’d… Okay, you’d probably think I was a crazed psycho with how wide my eyes are.

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Gaither

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!)
