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

    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 […]

    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.

    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 fact I actually stuck […]

    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!)

    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.

    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, either I mention the […]

    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 💖) With that much-needed break […]

    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 to think of some […]

    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 the actual story. I’d […]
