Taking Aim

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…

Hiya 👋 I had hoped to share a decent leap in my progress this week, but alas, that was not to be.

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.

What I’m Reading 13th June

It’s been a bit of a crazy week timewise, so I was ecstatic to that find the book I chose last week was a short one! (I know it’s only Monday, but that’s my Friday 😁🎉) [FYI: The book links are free from affiliate codes.]

Things in Scots: Gies a Scots Phrase Day

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…

Author Journal 9th – 15th June 2022

Hiya 👋 Last week I shared that I set up a timetable to help me focus on my edits. I also mentioned that I’d probably not stick to it. My prediction was correct, but not to the extent I’d internally feared. Yay! The timetable I set up is a fantasy. The…

What I’m Reading 6th June

Happy Monday! It’s time for another new book, and again, it’s a work read. [FYI: The book links are free from affiliate codes.]

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Bide

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!)

Author Journal 2nd – 8th June 2022

Hiya! Last week taught me a couple of things. First, editing for myself requires so much more discipline than when I did it for clients 😬. And second, I need to take a serious look at my daily work schedule.

What I’m Reading 30th May

The moment I finished writing Running the Asset, I’d promised myself that I’d get back into reading fiction. Not only because I love getting sucked into spy romances, but it’s also a handy way to up my writing skills. But, now that I’m into the editing phase, there is one work-related…

Things in Scots: Running the Asset Edition – Mibbe

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,…

Author Journal 26th May – 1st June 2022

Where did the time go? The last two weeks have flown by, and my holiday is over. We had a wonderfully relaxing time as we celebrated our anniversaries. Chilling out at home, watching movies and playing original Halo on co-op! (Thank you for all your warm wishes for us both 💖)…

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…
