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…

Author Journal 30th January – 5th February 2023

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…

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…

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Faut

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!

Author Journal 16th – 22nd January 2023

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…

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

Author Journal 9th – 15th January 2023

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…

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…

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…

Author Journal 16th – 22nd June 2022

Hiya 👋 It was only a matter of time before I hit a roadblock with editing. Mainly because editing is a mammoth task, and like with any job this big, it’s inevitable to stumble along the way. And stumble I did.
