Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Sarah: I just chose the name. I've never taught anyone called Zara.
Yes, I did like England, but I think I prefer Ireland, especially the Burren which I think is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Message:Katy: I've read your story and I'd be inclined to put '... five years ago (after 'a bright starry night') I like the expression 'slapped' - it's unusual - perhaps 'slapped the midnight blue of the sky'.
After the Mrs Edwards' bit, do start a new paragrah or put a mark like this * in the middle of the line and then start a new paragraph.
Instead of 'old wonky house' why not put ' a house that all the kids now called the '"the haunted house" (this will relate back to the title.

Use 'Sarah' instead of 'she' on most of the sentences.

So far as you've gone, this would seem like a very good story. Have you thought of an ending?

Message:Aoife: Sorry to hear about your arm.
The name of my last school in England was St Michael's.
I once taught a little girl called Tabitha and I thought it was a pretty name.

Sarah: I'm so pleased that it was your brother who won a prize.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Katy: The whole thing about a Halloween story is the building up of the atmosphere. The weather is very important - stormy with the moon sailing in and out of the clouds, the trees lashing and twisting - and then the house itself - where is it? Out in the country? On a street full of derelict houses? Build the story up to a high point - don't finish with - 'it was all a dream' or something like that, it spoils the story. Make it a real ghost story and as creepy as possible.
Send a plan to me by the Story Board (4 parts) so that I can see what you have in mind and then I can advise you better.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Sarah: No, I find it quite easy, but I do make sure to think about a story for quite a while before I write it and then I plan it.

Katy: If you want any advice for your Halloween story, don't hesitate to ask. The big thing is to describe a scene so that your reader feels they are there. For instance, don't just say it was nighttime - say something like 'it was a dark night, the moon kept disappearing behing the clouds', or 'it was bright clear night with stars pricking the blackness of the sky'.
If you are talking about being scared, just shut your eyes and imagine being scared. What is your heart doing? What do your hands feel like? What about your breath?

How long did it take to write your first book? I am looking forward to reading your books because now I have met a real author and I was so excited to meet you, my little sister too and big brother.
