Things in Scots: Photie

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…

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

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…

Author Journal 12th – 25th May 2022

This week’s entry covers the next two weeks, which can only mean that I’m taking a break and plan to do sod all during that time (other than catch up on your comments 💖 and some blog and book reading 🎉 ). Last week was my first one away from writing…

What I’m Reading 9th May

It’s been almost a month since I posted what I’ve been reading. Sixty plus hours a week down the word mines made it challenging to find time to read. But now that I’m heading for a holiday in T minus two hours, I thought I’d line up my next read.

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Polis

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…

Author Journal 5th – 11th May 2022

Wow. Wow. Wow. What a week last week turned out to be; I’m still reeling from it. I’ve got this weird detached feeling about it. It’s like this crazy combo of it was a year ago and that it was someone else’s experience. Basically, forgive the lack of detail about what…

Word Count Update 1st May

I can’t believe I’m finally able to say this, but it’s done! Running the Asset‘s manuscript is finished at 140,069 words! And, collapse! 🤣

Word Count Update 30th April

Another two scenes down, and the last two to go! It was difficult concentrating on the writing today–deliveries and setting up our new internet… and all the WiFi devices crying because they can’t get online. But we now have superfast broadband! Today’s new words takes Running the Asset‘s manuscript to 137,560…

Word Count Update 29th April

I’ve just finished writing the climax for the external plot! Another two and a half scenes in the bag. I cut the first scene for tomorrow in half to create two scenes to up the dramatic irony for the reader. Come on, who doesn’t love shouting at book characters when they…

Word Count Update 28th April

Man, I had a hard time getting going this morning. If there was even the slightest thing that could distract me, I was on it. Case in point: I found a roll of skinny washi tape under my chair and had to use it to put a nice wee accent on…

Author Journal 28th April – 4th May 2022

Have you ever set yourself a huge goal and then instantly regretted it? Yep, same here. With the goal I’d set myself last week, I was starting to have some serious doubts halfway through the first morning of the week.

Word Count Update 25th April

That’s the first half of Act III done! I’m taking the next two days off, and I’ll try my hardest to not run around the house clapping and giggling like an absolute eejit. But, I think that ship has already sailed. Running the Asset‘s manuscript is now at 130,577 words!

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Dinnae

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)

Word Count Update 24th April

I had so much fun writing today. I wish I could say what was fun about it, but… spoilers… let’s just say, Adam can be one scary bastard–and funny with it. As of now, Running the Asset‘s manuscript is now at 128,040 words!
