Britta’s Blog – Letters from Scotland

I write a daily blog, tracking my journey through life, my letter from Scotland into the world. My blog posts are always opinionated, sometimes weird & often wonderful and hopefully never boring. I like to spread a little bit of optimism into this world. Recurring themes include a lot about my writing adventures, Scotland, nature, family, creativity and of course life, the universe and all the rest of it. You’ll always find food for thought here, along with my personal nonsense and a cheerfully moody soul. I have written about the Zombie apocalypse and English language in Victorian times, you’ll find blog posts about grief as well as Ben Nevis or a lovely blue butterfly I saw on one of my walks.

I am a happiness blogging, circus skills instructing & common butterfly following German. I am also a performer, writer & linguist, who is annoyingly keen on hillwalking, baking lopsided cakes and causing a ruckus. I live in Scotland, my chosen home & habitat since the year 2000.

Hopefully, some of my thoughts and ideas will resonate with you, maybe they will entertain or even inspire you.

The views, adventures and shipwrecks on my blog are entirely my own.

My blog is not for everyone, but maybe it’s for you. I invite you to take a look around. Thank you for stopping by.

All my blog posts – newest to oldest – can be found in my back catalogue on ‘Latest Blogs‘.

In case you are looking for a dragon, check out ‘Eleven’, my latest work in progress. In July 2021 I finished the first draft of the story and I am now in the process of editing it. I will keep you updated on the progress of the final version. In the meantime you can read the first draft, if you wish. Follow my heroine Bonnie and a quite unruly white dragon in a purple tunic from the catacombs in Paris to the Trotternish peninsula on the Isle of Skye and beyond and see what kind of adventures they are up to.

Please subscribe to my blog if you enjoy my writing and wish to get new content delivered to your inbox.

If you would like to read more of my writing, you can go to my other two websites. I write a daily poetry blog called ‘Odds & Ends‘. You can find it on I post new odds & ends, bits & bobs, flotsam & jetsam every day.

I run a weekly writing group, The Procrastinators, and I post many of my short stories and poems on their website. I also develop and post creative writing prompts twice a week. If you are interested in reading our stories, poems and works in progress or if you would like to join, please contact me or go to We meet every Sunday, 7.30pm UK time on Zoom.

Please note: I write and post a new blog post every day – so I do apologize in advance for the odd spelling mistake and the usual hiccups of only moderately edited texts. I’m afraid, I’m decidedly human and thus prone to malfunction. You can always ask for your money back…
