Name: Sarah Patton
Message:Cora, for English we have to write a ashort story, I have started the introduction. I am not very good at writing stories and I don't know how to build the tension up between the Conclusion and the ending.I have left the start of it on the story board,please tell me what you think.I know what I want to happen but I don't know how to approach this kind of happening.
I would like the character Jemma to find out she has cancer and her friend the speaker in the story, tries to comfort her but Jemma grows weaker and weaker and dies but I don't want it to be too dramatic. An say the last word Jemma says are (the title of the story) "you are a friend for life)

Message:Aoibheann: No, I don't usually write during the summer. I give myself those months off. Also I usually give myself December off and a few weeks at Easter.
I hope you like 'millennium' - that is about a dog I had quite a long time ago, called Mara (although in the book I call her Heidi).
I can see why you call Lucky a puppy - when my dog, Oscar, was only seven months old he was as tall as the kitchen table!
Sarah: I have had published about 26/27 (can't remember) books for children and two for adults. My third for adults will be in the shops in May.

Message:Cora: Looking at 'Millennium @ Drumshee' It looks really cool!
Do you write over the summer or do you just relax and go on holiday?
(but by the weather we get here, who would be able to go on holiday?)

Message:Cora: Thanks. From what you told us at the Gaelscoil Wolf sounded like one brave dog. I bet he was.
I have a dog too, His name is lucky. He is very cute, but mostly funny! he's a small jack russel puppy. he is about 3 now, we've had him since he was 1.

Message:Aoibheann: Well done. I'm glad that you were well enough to take part.

I'm afraid that I don't have Wolf any more. He was suffering from an incurable illness and was in a lot of pain so I had to have him put to sleep a few years ago.
I have another dog now, Oscar. Wolf's half-brother is his grandfather.

Message:Cora:I'll try and get chapter 10 done before I go to the quiz. I think The end will come at about chapter 15.Thanks for the advice about not rushing. I'm going to make sure in chapter 10 that some of rainbows emotions are put into the chapter as well.

Message:Sarah Patton: My favourite of the Drumshee books is 'Treachery at Midnight' but I do like the famine one, also - which is your favourite character, Deirdre or Fiona?
Sarah: It's hard to say how is my favourite author as I read such a lot that it is always changing. Who is yours?
Kristine: We have a lot in common - I am just the same. I was asking my agent the other day whether I should send a detailed plan of the books in a new series which I am hoping to get accepted. His reply was: 'don't bother, both you and I know that there will be loads of changes before the book is actually completed to your satisfaction.
Aoibheann: I'm looking forward to the last chapter - remember, don't rush and make it the best one in the book!

Message:Cora: I have a chapter plan made out anyway, I'm sort of an obsessive planner when it comes to writing, despite how I generally end up changing everything anyway! I'm planning between eighteen and twenty chapters.

Message:aoibheann: This is the best story you have done (for the Story Club, anyway,) so don't spoil it by rushing. Have a good think about what would make a good end.

Kristine: That's great - I was just checking. Don't rush - let the ending come naturally when the story starts to come together.

Cora:Thanks. She doesn't really need to die, I suspose. She could still be miffed at Rainbow though.

Message:Kristine: That's fine - it's just what you should be doing.
Do you know how this story is going to end? If not, you should be turning some over in your mind a few possible endings.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Aoibheann: The best way to write that last chapter would be to imagine yourself coming back into your own school (and boarding schools are not so different from day schools). You're in the classroom (you came through the French window), you are reading the poem, you hear the noise, you come out.
Now imagine who's there. Pupils - just do a few sentences describing where they are and what they are doing. Teachers - again a few sentences naming them and describing their reactions. then you have to decide who is going to tell Rainbow about what has happened. I reckon a teacher or even the Principal would be best, but you can make up your own mind.
(Does Skye really have to die?)

Message:Cora: well instead of the little kid.mabye the principal could gide rainbow through to where skye is. the piont was though, that rainbow would get to say sorry to skye before she passed away.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Aoibheann: I'm not sure of this business about adding in 'the little kid' at this late stage of the story. I don't think you need to be so complicated. all you need is a sentence or two to keep Rainbow out of the way for an hour or so and then to come back into school and to have everyone standing around white-faced, teachers as well as pupils, and full of the news about what happened to Skye
