Message:Sarah: My first book was the shortest, but it took the longest to write - I suppose because I wasn't used to writing then. I think it took a couple of months - which for me is very, very long.

Message:Thanks for the message, Gavin. I'm delighted that you liked the book. Shane is my favourite character, also.
If you do write your book, please send it to me to put on the Story Board. I would be delighted to give you advice as you go along.

Message:I read "A Life For A Life" and I thought it was brilliant. I especially liked Shane. (Not just because he has a hawk.)
I thought it was great the way you mentioned places I have been to like Dysert O' Dea and Bunratty and especially King John's Castle as I live in Clare. Your Iron Age Fort is only about (less than) 10 miles from where I live. You probably know where I live. I won't say it though because this is the internet and nothing is completely safe on the internet.
Anyway, the book was very interesting and I think I will write one of my own.
Thanks for the enthusiasm Cora. Keep up with the good work.

Message:I have started a new story in the Story Club. Everyone can join in. Just carry on the story from where the last entry stops. You can write as little or as much as you wish. Don't finish the story, though, until I tell you.

Message:Emer & Aoibheann: I've put your stories on the Story Board.

Leah: My advice for writing a story is to plan it first. Four sections is a good idea. A beginning, then the story progresses, then something goes wrong, perhaps, or something unexpected happens and then an ending. It's best not to start the story before you have planned the ending.
As to publication, well that's very difficult. I wouldn't even think of it until you can produce a good story that lasts for about fifty typed pages.

Message:Katy: I think that is a great idea - perhaps make a story with five short chapters. I'd say that would work out very well. Good luck and send me the result - or any questions.

Message:Dear Cora, I wrote you a story to not put on the Story Club and I have had an idea. Would it be good to add more parts, like a part two to the end of it aswell? Be honest if you don't think it would. Thank you for all your advice, I am dying to read gorgeous, but it's very popular and sold out at the book fair in school!!! Thank you so much, Katy

Message:Hello Dearbhla,
Yes, I remember you. I'm sure that you are not a bit like Zara. You are probably a great friend and not a a bully, at all. Have you read 'Gorgeous'?

Message:Katy: I like that story very much and hope that when you are satisfied with it that you will like it to be posted on the Story Board.
Yes, I do think that it could be much longer. You have a lot of material, but you are rushing through it. Think of it as set in four scenes.
If I were you, I would not have Jenny wake up in hospital, but in a private house - you could make a very good scene out of that - having her gradually realising about Mrs Hedge and whose house she is in.
Also, perhaps a little bit more about Sarah in the beginning - perhaps mum and dad just out for the evening.

Message:Kristine: I just have to say how much I loved the sixth chapter of 'Anywhere But Here'. I thought Scarlett was extremely well done and the suspense is so intriguing that I am really looking forward to reading the next chapter.
Many congratulations!

Message:Jade: I'm delighted that you enjoyed my talk. I wouldn't buy all of the books, though - that would be a bit expensive! Get a couple and see how you like them.
Which class are you in?
