The Wise Woman

The Wise Woman in Training: Quick Facts

I’m Jennifer: an aspiring writer working in and living near Edinburgh, Scotland. It means so much to me that you’ve found my blog and you’ve taken the time to look around! I work in learning and development, helping people grow and become more successful but my true passion is writing. I write flash fiction for this blog and I am working on an urban fantasy story based in Scottish folklore. I write during my commute and any free time that I have. Ask me about it!

You’ll find regular posts here about writing, creativity and books in general including monthly reading wrap ups. I have a masters degree in business psychology and love helping people to be as successful as they can be so I try to share that learning here from time to time as well as including thoughts about life in general.

I took a three year hiatus on this blog in 2014 in order to finish my master degree in business psychology, get married and in general get my life together. Now I am back and posting weekly new posts.




Follow me on this blog, twitter (j_wisewoman) or my pinterest board to find out when I upload new posts.




  1. Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks so much for the recent blog follow. It has led me to your blog, which I am now following via RSS.

    I am especially interested in your blog since I mentor grad students and they are in their 20’s. It’s helpful to know what you all are thinking and how you approach life.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts!

    P.S. And you are the first person I’ve met from Scotland 🙂

    • Hi Nancy,

      Thanks for the follow in return! Hopefully you enjoy my blog though I can only guarantee it will give you an insight into mine.

      Also, on the Scottish front, I love a good plate of haggis 😉


  2. Hi Jennifer! Thank you for following my blog. As each day passes we learn so much more from the experience shared by others, and no doubt we’ll keep on learning. Keep writing!

  3. Thanks for following my blog, writing at the speed of mom, Jennifer, however I moved that blog to my website It’d be great to have you follow me there.

    Congrats on your engagement and planning the wedding! It’s a wonderful and exciting time.

    BTW. Love the photo with the elephants! I love elephants. I’ve got them all over my house. Not the real ones of course. LOL!

  4. Hahahaha! 🙂
    Hello Jennifer, thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your about page. Hey,with a car, home job, fiance…your more adult than most! 🙂 Hugs to you from Oz. Paula xxx

  5. I see no reason to be an adult; merely continue exploring, always. I’ll be sure to check in regularly, though, because I’d like to see what this growing up is all about.
    Thanks for the follow
    Boy x

    • Thanks! That’s so cool of you!

      I’ll be writing my reply as soon as possible (although having to come up with 10 interesting things about me is a bit daunting!).

      We have to make it – all the thirtysomethings did!
