If you look at the updated Synopses tab, you will see the new description for my current project:
Zoe should have listened to her mother, because then she would have known not to flaunt glittery things where magpies might see them.
That is not the only thing Zoe should have listened to.
When she is carried off by a giant magpie she finds herself in a land where all the old wives tales come true.
Sounds pretty good, huh?
Well, I need your help!
I'm trying to collect as many old wives tales, proverbs, oral history etc. about Australia as I can. Things such as magpies collect glittering objects, or to never walk in long grass. Things that you were told as a child, true or not true, that gave you an image of Australia.
If you think of any (or any good ones that aren't specifically Australian, but universal) please post them below.
