Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Kristine:

OK - you're the author!

I'm looking forward to Chapter Three.

Name: Kristine
Message:Cora: I think I'd prefer to try re-writing chapter one than to leave it out altogether. I suppose it feels to me like I'm jumping into the story too quickly by starting with chapter two - I really don't want to water down the fact that Scarlett really has had a hard time of it in the past.

I'm almost finished Chapter Three. I'll send that in later today, hopefully.

Message:Aoibheann: I still think it is a good idea to plan your ending first. If you look back over the Story Club you will see how many stories of yours never got finished - all, I think?
Sadbh: Nice to hear from you again.
Kristine: You misunderstand me. It's not that I didn't want to put it on - it's just that I thought chapter two was better. Chapter one seemed a bit derivative, a bit 'Jacqueline Wilson'. I thought you settled into the story better in chapter two. However, I have put it on now so you can see what you think.
Niamh: That's a good idea, as long as it doesn't become too like Harry Potter. I'll have a think.

Message:What about a fantasy for a new story in the story club? Maybe have an opening in a dark alley and a mysterious conversation?

Message:Cora: I understand if you want to leave out chapter one because of the content, that's totally fine

Message:I'll get back to everyone in a couple of days - just very, very busy now.

Kristine: I've only had time for a quick glance, but I feel chapter 2 might make a better opening.

Name: Kristine
Message:Cora: Oh! And, I forgot to mention, the first chapter has some heavy teenage themes in it. It's necessary for the plotline but the rest of the chapters won't be like that. It's just the first one.

Message:sorry cora i can't think of a ending right now, cause normally after mabye a couple of chapters a ending springs into my mind but i can't think of one right now but i will do the ending soon

Message:Aoibheann: I think the best thing for you to do would be to send me the ending of your new story (if you have it planned). Make sure that you send at least ten lines so that I can see how it is going to work out. Don't worry, I won't put it onto the Story Club Board until the time has come for an ending, but I'd like to have some assurance of the story being ended this time. You've started so many and then abandoned them.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:There have been quite a few entries, but the only one who actually finished the story was Niamh, so I have chosen her ending - a very good one, I thought.
Any ideas for a new story?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Aoibheann & Gina: Thanks for your entries for The Storyline. Unfortunately I saw both at the same time and they don't really follow on for each other.
I think, in any case, that it is best if I say now that the story must be finished so I will only put on a good ending to it - otherwise it will go on for ever with new twists and turns.

Message:Yeah, I think so too. It has been on for a while and it's time for a new one. Maybe a fantasy?

Message:Niamh: I loved the new bit of your story - well done!

Many thanks, also, for your addition to the Storyline. This has moved the story on very well. It really is ready for its ending, now, don't you think?

Message:It's just my computer, that's why it doesn't work. I'm using a diffrent one though now. I just sent in the next part of A Flash of Life. It's just a small chapter. I hope you like it!

Message:Aoibheann: That's a good idea.

John (& Peter): I like the vivid way that you write, but you are really writing a different story to the Daisy & Kate one. I think this story should be finished up now if someone can think of a good end. By the time the sotry goes into the fourth page it begins to drag and new visitors can't really catch up with in the ins and outs - now there's a challenge for a writer!

Message:Kristine: Well done. No one ever became a writer without a fair measure of determination and hard work.
I rewrote my adult novel, 'My Lady Judge' two or three times before it was accepted and now it is out there selling well in most of the world.
Don't give up!

Message:Cora: It's the Summer now anyway, so I have plenty of time to think about it. While I'm thinking if I'll send it in I think I'll try writing some of the more modern stuff. It's been a while since I wrote something like that.

Message:Dear Kristine,
I know exactly how you feel. One feels so vulnerable to those people and the uncomfortable fact is that you are almost bound to be disappointed.
Perhaps you might feel happier just to leave it for the moment and try something else.
Just feel assured that I think this is worthy of publishing and some day you might feel like giving it a go.
Best of luck - whatever you decide - and keep the stories coming!

Message:Cora: I'm not quite sure if I'm confident enough to send it to a publisher, but I think that I'll regret missing a chance if I don't. I haven't called them yet but perhaps I'll send the first chapter with a cover letter or something. Just to know that at least I tried.

Message:Niamh: I'm sorry that you have been having trouble with the message board - it's quite strange that it is just the message board that doesn't work for you. Have you tried clicking on 'refresh' on the toolbar?
I loved the new story - keep it up!

Message:Kristine: If you don't feel ready to approach a publisher, I would just leave it for the moment and go on enjoying your writing. It's a chance in ten thousand, anyway, that it would be accepted - not because of its quality - which is excellent, but because of the sheer numbers of people writing books.
I suppose that I suggested it because it's such an excellent story and I am quite excited about it.
However, the problem with it would be that thousands of people are writing in this genre now. Publishers are probably more likely to accept a modern 'teen' story from someone of your age. Claire Hennessy was only about fourteen when her first book, about school life, was published.
