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?

Message:Emer: Thanks for the story - I've put a few suggestions for you.

Aoibheann: I think that is a good idea. I must say that I like a story to be finished and I think it is a bad habit not to write an ending - annoying for the reader!

KatY: You could send your story to the Story Club and no one but I will be able to read it (put a note on it to remind me not to post it on the Story Club Board). Then I could put any advice onto the message board for you.

Message:Kristine: An Oxford comma is a comma that you put before the word and - some people approve of them and some hate them and ninety-nine per cent of the population has never heard of them!
Don't worry about the points that I mentioned - I wouldn't have mentioned them to anyone other than you, but you can just keep them in mind as you write. Feel your way into her skin and keep thinking - now would Scar say, or feel this. Remember you probably have a very different background.

Name: Kristine
Message:Cora: I didn't actually know there was a meaning for 'Oxford Comma'. Because of the fact that music has so much meaning for Scarlett, every chapter is named after a song, mostly rock songs by bands mentioned in the story (they're all real bands), and Oxford Comma is the name of a song that I felt kind of sums up Nate's personality.

I understand what you mean about her history getting lost, and her self-conciousness, and, if I ever re-write this (which, knowing me, I probably will) I'll put these in. I only thought of them when you said it - I wish I had beforehand, though, it would have made the chapter much better.

Message:Kristine: I can't imagine anything that you ever wrote being not worth while or boring. I like this chapter.
Aoibheann: I've been worrying a bit about your new story. You see, I don't like the idea that this web site might encourage children to use chatrooms, and , although, those chatrooms you mention might be made up, I still don't like the idea of having a story about them on this website.
Could you possibly change it into an email conversation - something where two friends email each other and the story gradually unfolds. What do you think about that?

Name: Kristine
Message:Cora: So sorry for the delay - and the chapter I'm sending in isn't even worth it - but you know the way it is with school starting back and everything. This chapter is quite short and boring but I felt I needed something to bridge the gap between exciting events. I'll have the next chapter for you very soon.

Message:Aoibheann: Inisheer will be a wonderful place to spend five days - I'm just writing about it for a chapter in one of my books for adults. I meant to go to see it again to refresh my memory, but the weather is just too bad.
Well done with your story. I think that is fine now - an excellent ending. It's a nice feeling, isn't it, to finish off a story properly?

Message:Good idea. The next time that you write a story you should probably think of writing the ending first, keep it to one side and then work on the story - try it - just for fun.
