Name: Minnie
Message:You're right, Cora! I think we should have a competition like that on Story Club and then you could decide the winner!
Second of all, I'm super-stuck for ideas for a story to write now. I like the Victorian Era, and mystery, but I'm not too sure what to write about have you got any ideas?
Thanks :-)

Message:Hi Cora, my freind Cora o Conner was also telling me about that book. When Cora was reading the messages she said that there will be a third Jane Austan. I'll ask the teacher to order new Jane Austan books or there might be a stanta book where you can order books for yourself.

Message:Kelley: it's interesting what you said, because I was reading recently about a competition for a short, short story. It's something that expresses in a few words a whole story. An example is Hemingway:
FOR SALE A PAIR OF BABY SHOES. NEVER WORN.
Of course this brings to mind a whole story of heartbreak, of love and of loss - very effective.
Perhaps we should try a competition like that on the Story Club.

Mairead: Goodness, you must be a quick reader. See if your school will order 'Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend' as well as 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend' - I think you will enjoy that.

Message:Thanks for your messages, Cora and Mairead.

I always find historical novels very easy to write, Cora. You can pick some exciting event in history and then have your main character present at this event.

Message:I hope to, Olivia. In the meantime I am doing a book called the Debutantes - it's aimed at the same audience as the two Jane Austen books, - it's sort of 'Downton Abbey' - have you watched that? I love it!

Message:Yeah, I have very bad dyscalculia. I don't know if I will be able to achieve C grade in my GCSES, but oh well. My life doesn't really matter as much as other people's.

Message:Belive it or not - and I taught in England for a long time so I, too was amazed - Irish secondary school teachers have holidays from the end of May until the beginning of September!

Message:Aoibhe: Try getting a grown-up to help you. Or else, if it's short send it to the message board and I'll copy it in.
Cora: Lovely to hear from my namesake again. Glad you like 'Famine' - as well as jane Austen, of course.
Minnie: Yes, the combination of teacher and writer might work - especially in Ireland where the holidays are so long. In England it's a bare 6 weeks in the summer for secondary as well as primary.
Kelley: Thanks. Have you tried 'Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend'. It's the sequel. You might get it at your library.

Message:Kelly: I've just put your story on - it's great.

Questions:
what is your favourite book and author, why? author is probably Charles Dickens because I read first when I was seven and am still reading him 65 years later.
What is your favourite book that you have wrote and why?? or do you like them all the same?
I find it very hard to pick out a favourite book - they are all my children!

Message:Maybe, but I'll still be a writer. I want to be an English teacher and a photographer too. I think I will still be a writer, but on top of that I could work part time as something else perhaps.

Well I sent you the other part of my story, and sorry this story is so long. There will be two other parts after it, and then Lorna and Joey's journeys shall end. Will their paths meet again? Or will Lorna run to another house?
