Message:Hi Cora, I finished the story. It's not very good, but at least I did it. Will you start a new story soon - not a school story this time. we've had too many of these.

Hi Summer: What do you want us to do? Do you want us to correct your English. Most of us are not too good at English. I'm always getting told off for bad spelling - though I am getting better.

Message:Summer: Thank you for your long message which you sent through the Story Club. I'm sorry that you are feeling discouraged. You probably hoped that this website would solve your problems, but really it's just a website for the children - most of them under twelve - who read my books. I don't think you can expect it to teach you English. I understand your frustration, and I'm sorry that you did not find my advice helpful.
I think that you might be better sending short messages and information about Saudi Arabia and then possibly children will respond. That's not in my hands; it's up to the children, themselves.

Message:Cora: who is going to finish off the story. I think when it gets to page 4 people get confused about it.

Bridget: Do you think you would like to come to Ireland? I suppoose Idaho is a very exciting place to live in.

Message:Bridget: Take your time - but if you do decide to do something I would be delighted to help.

Patricia: the important thing about being a writer is to have the ability to put into words what others just feel. Have a go and see how it works out.

Aoife: That was just some spam that you saw before I deleted it. The Brehon of the Burren might be a bit like 'Murder at Drumshee' and 'Another Murder at drumshee' but these are for adults. I tried looking at your symbol sideways, but still don't know what it means!

Message:Hi Cora:
Today isn't the best school day. My mom was sick earlier this morning, so I cleaned the house for her. Now it's 11:00 and I haven't done any school work!

I might do something to learn about my ancestors. The pictures are great, by the way. I've always wondered what Ireland looks like.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Patricia: That's great. I am delighted to know that is your own experience. It's quite right not to fall into the cliché of loud, confident behaviour equalling low marks - much more interesting the way you have done it.
However, I think you should describe the fight with Nicola - what each of you said, and how you felt etc.

Message:Cora, It is about my story I made my life into that story and 95% is true a lot of people call me smart but I have been known to have a wild side, I'm trying to prove even the smartest person can be the loudest! (All my report is true and the fight with Nicola is also true)

Message:Bridget: Thanks - you were the first to notice, I think. These photos will give you an idea of the Ireland that your ancestors left.
You might think sometime of doing a project about them. That is the wonderful thing about not being tied down to school work - you can go the way that your intellectual interests lead. I think my daughter would have liked the idea of an Internet school - she was very bored at her Grammar School.

I did notice the new format. It's very nice. When I first got on, though, it took me a minute to find the Message Board and the Story Club.

Message:I do think Its alot of words but sure if I aim that high hopefully falling shoet of that would still be sufficient. It wouldn't be a disappointment if I didn't make that target I'd simply be happy with 30-35000 but its no harm to set a high target

Message:that's a very interesting message and I'm glad to have helped with your history. Did your parents say not to give your name? Generally I think it's OK to give Christian names, but never addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses.

Ursula: Now that gives you something to aim at. Does 40,000 words seem a lot?

Did anyone notice my new-look home page, and if so, what did you think of it.

Message:Hey I'm delighted that other people are enjoying the story so far. Today I got a reply from Poolbeg. Their Publishing Assistant emailed me and said that unfortunately they are not accepting any more childerens books as their list is full till end of 2006 and she also advised me that the book should be around 40000 words and to keep reading other books. She was really nice and I was delighted with the advice as usual. She also explained how hard it is for them to promote and produce Childrens books. She was really nice and the advice helped.
Next Step---- Finish Book!!

It must have felt great when the war was over and you could eat normal food again.
Hi Paula:
My brother has many of the Drumshee Timeline Series, but that's all. We have to order them through Amazon because so far we've only seen one bookstore that has them, and it's not even in Idaho!

Message:Sixth Class, St Ita's: Great to hear from you all. I enjoyed my visit very much to your school.

Be careful of Drumshee Rebels, Paula. It's out-of-print now.

summer: If you look back at one of your earlier stories you will see that I rewrote it for you in correct English. This may be of some help to you. You may not have seen it as I don't think you acknowledged it.

Alannah: I've put your next episode on to the Story Board. I enjoyed it very much.

Message:I love the Drumshee Rebels I've read it about twenty times. My mam says that it will fall apart if I read it again.

Bridget: You sould read Cora's book World War II if you are studying this. Or can't you get her books in America?

Just wanted to say that the pictures are cool.

I think your best book is Trechury at Midnight and I've read them all. I'm a fan, you could say.
