A Return, a Revelation, and a Renewed Commitment

Advertisements

Do you ever write a blog post or email, delete it, then write it again, and delete it ad nauseam? If you’re anything like me with this post, you get it. I’ve been writing and rewriting this ‘return to the blog’ post for the past two months, yet I’ve never shared a single version.

So, here goes…

At the start of 2023, I wrote a “return” post after recovering from a major burnout. I’m hitting refresh and sharing a new ‘return’ post! Why? Well, the first one was missing one key detail. I didn’t leave it out by choice. It was a requirement in Scots Law.

Fan Of… Album Pathway

After a slightly extended break from the blog–I’ve been working away in the background–I thought I’d ease back into posting by participating in my wonderful husband, Jez’s, weekly Fan Of… challenge.

Now, I’m slightly cheating here, but only slightly. We like a lot of the same things… so it’ll be no surprise that I’m also a fan of the Album Pathway in Glasgow.

Hiya 👋

Hiya!

This is going to be a short but sweet update. (I’m actually on holiday for the next week and totally forgot to say so in the last post.)

I was in pre-holiday brain mode for the whole of last week. Well, that’s apart from when I injured my left arm on Saturday, leaving me with non-functional arms for the rest of the week. I used Whisper.ai to transcribe my notes 😁

Hiya 👋

Happy Thursday! At the start of the year, I had planned to post my Author Journal updates on Mondays to align with most people’s workweek. However, Monday is the end of my workweek, and I felt rushed to get the post out before the weekend.

So, after a few weeks of trying it out, I’ve decided to return to my original posting plan on Wednesdays. And yes, I know it’s Thursday today, but I had such a great weekend that I didn’t want to cut into it by thinking about work. 😊

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?
