Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Aoibheann: I think you've put your finger on what makes for good writing - always imagine you are there in the scene. Even go to the extent of digging your nails into your own palm before you make your character do that. All in all, you must feel that you are writing about someone you know well, and in a situation that you can imagine clearly.

Message:I feel I've progressed so much with my writing since I first sent you a message way back in Fourth Class. Now in class, I can imagine the scene so much better thanks to your advice.

I just want to thank you so much. Because writing in class is my favourite subject.

I just want to thank you so much for helping me.

Message:Aoibheann: I've left 'Twice as Gorgeous', but I've 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend' coming out in March and I think you might enjoy that because it is about a shy girl making friends with a lively one and then having fun, going to dances etc. - like an eighteenth century version of 'Gorgeous'.
Emer: The story you sent reads like a good plan for a story. You could work on it a bit and then write it as a story for people to enjoy reading. You need a bit of suspense - a time when everything seems to be going wrong - something to keep your readers interested.

Message:Aoibheann: I think I just look around the room and try to spot people who look as if they might fit the character.
I'm glad you enjoyed 'Gorgeous'.

Message:Jill: Thanks for your message. I hope you enjoy Gorgeous.
Is it raining in Clarinbridge? It is here so I am sitting in my spare bedroom typing my new book and looking out at the rain. It feels nice and cosy indoors and I'm lucky to have a job where I don't need to go out. When it stops raining I shall take my dog for a walk.

Message:Emily: George says ĎHií. He likes other dogs. Yes, the story about the girl is as true as I can make it. I canít really explain it.
Sally-Anne: I so understand what you are saying. When I was young I was really put off stories by people criticising my handwriting and spelling. Please donít be put off. These things donít matter that much. Agatha Christie made millions and she could neither write nor spell! Send me what you have and I will just look at the ideas and help as much as I can.
Laura: Iím so pleased that you liked my visit. Itís very difficult for me to choose a favourite book. Itís like as if they are all my children Ė if you can understand what I meant by this.
Sally-Ann: Donít worry Ė it sounds promising!
