Life + Stuff: Wild women

I’m sorry for being so quiet lately. I know that it’s not like me at all. I have been settling into my new country home, planting a veggie garden, buying chickens and generally breathing a little easier.


Just think Freudian for a minute. What does this remind you of?

On the upside, this period of reflection has given me an idea for a book. It’s called Sensible Advice for Wild Women. Surely all the dumb stuff I have done has to be helpful to someone?!

I am writing up little pieces of advice for other wild women and I was wondering if perhaps you would like to contribute? I am going to include some real life stories about love, loss, marriage, divorce, children, shopping, pets, our bodies, money, men, sex … you name it, it’s going in. For example, ‘Never give yourself a Brazilian’. Profound stuff.

The brief for the real life stories is:

  • Up to 500 words
  • Stories should be titled with your topic area, story title, name and contact details (if you want people to interact with you) – ie Divorce, ‘Why everyone should do it at least once’ by Zsa Zsa Gabor
  • Stories should be submitted to emma(at) by no later than December 31st, 2012

I am going to turn it into an e-book that will sell for $4.99, the proceeds of which will go to women’s charities. Please feel free to nominate deserving charities that you support – I’m open to suggestions.

I hope you will get involved in this project because I do think there is so much value in sharing our stories – good, bad, ugly, painful, joyful.

Are you a wild woman? Have you learnt everything the hard way?

    Dear Emma,

    So glad you are settling in up in Tamworth. As for the book, wonderful idea, and you know I just love contributing things, so I will try to come up with some sage advice for all those WWs out there.

  5. Thanks Emma for reminding us that the term ‘quality blog’ is not an oxymoron. Put me on the ‘avid’ list.

  6. GREAT idea. On the to-do list so count me in!
