Message:Hi Helen:
You're so lucky to be able to go so many places! I've never been out of America except when I went to Mexico last year. I've never seen a koala, either. Not in the wild or in captivity.
I'll have to figure out just what the notes are in the song to put them on, but I'll try to put them in soon.
Hi Carmel:
Thank you! I've never really written other poems or sonnets.

Message:Thanks cora, I'm glad you like the storyline I added. I hadn't read the whole story so I wasn't sure if my bit would be ok. I've sent in chapter 2. It was 't originally in the story but I felt that the castle and Tara's character needed more description. The next chapter is one of my favorites, maybe I will send it in tomorrow. Bye, From Carmel

Message:Dear Carmel:
I think you are a gifted writer. I just love that entry in the Storyline. I hope that you can finish it off and then we can have a new story.
I'm just going to put on your latest story. I agree with you that the present title doesn't do it justice. I'll be thinking about it.

Message:Hello Cora, generally other peoples works give me the insparation to write a story and I think it would be a little unfair not to say it was based on them. However, I'm writing a story at the moment which is slightly similar to The Pearls story and I will put it on the site, chapter by chapter so that I might be able to finish it without any presure. I haven't decided on a name so any suggestions from you or the other girls would be greatly appreciated. I have put it under the name 'Serange' but it will probably not stick. I will send in the first chapter From Carmel

Message:Hello Bridget, I read you song on St Lucy and I really love it. Like Helen, I would love to have the music. You are good at sonnets, I couldn't write one to save my life, I think peoms are much easier. From Carmel

Message:Hello Miss Harrison, I am glad you think my English is so good. My teachers think so too. I live in Ireland but I am really French. I have been living here for only one and a half years but I used to learn English in France as well. Christmas does seem to be looming very close though doesn't it! We are leaving Ireland a few days before Christmas so that we may have it in France so I may be absent from the sight for a few weeks. It would be great to have a poem section and a christmas story competion sounds good to though I prefer poems to stories. Thankyou for taking my suggestion, From Helen

Message:: Helen: Your English is so excellent that I assumed you must be English (or Irish). Are you French?
I think that a special place for poems is a great idea - perhpas we could call it the Poetry Board.

It'll probably be after Christmas before it can be done, but I will talk to my Web Master and see what he thinks.
Last year, or was it the year before, we had a competition for the best Christmas Story and it might be a good idea to revive that. I must say that I love Christmas.

Message:Hello Miss Harrison, I would like to make a little suggestion for your sight, I have said before that I very much like it but perhaps,considering that some people are writing them, you should make a poem section. Maybe, if you did, you could have copetitons with people writing poems about your books, or about characters in them. Some very good poems, though they may be long, could be made using the main theme of some of your books. Plus it is interesting to put a story into a poem or visa versa. You might consider it, I think it a good idea. Au revoir Respectfully yours (we learnt in school to put that at the end of English letters or messages) From Helen

Message:Bonjour again Bridget, I forgot to right in my last message that I think you sonnets very nice, but your Santa Lucia song is ravissante! St Lucy is one of my favorite saints and I wish there was a way you put the music on the sight. Perhaps you could write it in ABCDEFG method so I could try it on the piano. Anyway, even in writing it is wonderful. I wrote a poem for my brother Liam some years ago and, when read in a song-sing kind of way it sounds nice. Don't believe it though, liam is not that great! Tchoa! from Helen

Message:Bonjour Bridget! I like Emily Dickinson too, she writes lovely poems. I'm glad you liked my poem, I sent in another one which my little brother, Marcus, really likes. It was for a halloween party. It's a bit wierd but I think it is funny. I will send in another one called 'My Koala'. I wrote it when I was seven or eight after going to a trip to Australia. I tried to pat a koala in a wild life sancutary there and found him rather bad tempered. It's not very good, I had to transalate it into English, but I think it is sweet! Au revoir and merci, From Helen

Message:Kristine: That's interesting what you said about writing well when you are exhausted. I often find that I write well when I'm very relaxed and then the words just flow out.
Good luck with your exams. I'm sure that you will do well.
Bridget: No, I don't think of you as isolated. I just said that 'it might seem as if you would be isolated'. Having known you for a while I know that you lead a very sociable life. I wonder how you will find school. I myself didn't go to school until I was fifteen (due to illness) and although I enjoyed the fun and company, I found a lot of the lessons quite boring as I was used to doing things at my own pace.

Message:Hi Cora:
I just put on a song I wrote during a swim meet this weekend. It would probably have a much better rhythm put to the music I made up, but right now it's more of a poem.
It's about St. Lucy, who was martyred when she was only a teenager. Her feast day is December 13th.

Message:Hi Helen:
I loved your poem! I can write sonnets OK, but poems are so much harder for me because I have to make up my own rhythm and rhyme scheme. Maybe that's why I like e.e. cummings and Emily Dickinson. I tried to write a poem, but I was too embarrassed to show anyone, and now I can't find it!

Message:Hi Cora:
Thank you. I'm not really isolated, though. I know a lot of people in church and Judokan Jiu-Jitsu, but I don't know three million people the way kids in normal schools do. I'm starting public high school next year (from fourteen to seventeen) and I'll probably be one of those kids. I have to admit that the people I'm closest to are on the swim team. I also have a lot of adults I can talk to just like friends.

Not even halfway through Christmas exams. Have Irish and History exams tomorrow, had maths part 2 today. Studying wrecks my head! Feel that if I continue my brain will explode!
Am starting, now, chapter five of Elementi...more family problems to come. Yay. Am exhausted but find that is usually the best time to write...no energy to get distracted! Shall post as soon as poss., sorry to keep you waiting.

Message:Bridget: Yes, I liked your sonnets. You lead an interesting life. I suppose the home-schooling (though obviously it works well on educational side) might seem as if it isolates you, nevertheless you have all this social life with the swim-club.

Helen: So you live in France - my favourite country and my favourite language (and wine!). What part of France do you live in? I also wondered whether you had Irish connections...

Message:Salut again Miss Harison, Thankyou for answering my massage. I noticed one of the girls sent in some poems, I don't know if it was right to but I have sent in one that I wrote after a trip to Sydney in Australia. I put it in the story club page, I hope you like it, it is very funny. Au revoir, from Helen

You can put the sonnets on if you want tob. I only had a week to write and memorize them, so they're a little rough in some places.

Message:Dear Bridget,
I love the form of the sonnet - I think it has a great dignity about it. I would love to see you yours - and to put them on the Story Board. However, if you don't want to do that, that's OK.
I'm afraid that I have never managed to write a poem which was not just a piece of doggerel. I like writing, but poetry is not my thing. You are obviously multi-talented.

Message:Hi Cora:
I wrote three sonnets for a speech festival in October. I don't know if they're very good, but sonnets sound so much more impressive than poems, even though they're much easier. Poems can do anything while sonnets have a formula. I tried writing a poem, but I was so embarrassed about reading it out loud that I decided to write sonnets instead. Did you ever write a sonnet or poem?
