Message:Patricia: I don't know you and I don't know the Principal of your school so I am not sure what to advise. However, I will do my best (as a former principal, teacher and teenage rebel!) I would feel rather uneasy rather uneasy about advising you to complain to the Principal. It might get you labelled as a rebel. I think you should just say: 'no thanks' politely to the request to get involved in a Charity Show. Just give some excuse like that you are busy or something - games, homework, writing a novel!

Many thanks for the 'teen-speak' It's really useful and interesting (I notice that I often say: 'really'!). I've put it on to my extract.

Message:Cora, What do you think of that teacher who wants you to do a charity event that no one will support, a complete waste of time and no one wants to sing (including me) and I'm the only one that would say it to her. She also gets hysterical. Do you think I should give out to her or complain to the princpal which people have alreagy done. Shes my english teacher and she can't teach for her life.

Message:Cora, I know that I was one of the oldest in the class and I was always told by teachers that I was very mature and responable and I would make it great in secondary last year. But now I'm been told by a teacher that I have now that I'm very un mature and that I should start listening to her and not doing my own thing which I think is a whole lot of rubbish and I should be able to choose of what I want to do.

Message:Stephanie: The publisher who did the Wolf stories (Merlin) has decided to give up children's books. I have managed to find another publisher to do the Drumshee books (Mentor Books) but I haven't found anyone to do the next two Wolf books. I'm glad you like them because they are great favourites of mine.

Message:Alannah; I normally, these days, plan about ten chapters. Whe I started writing first I used to plan about fifteen chapters, but now I find that as I write about things occur to me. I suppose, now, I am more confident of my own ability to come up with ideas.

Patricia: That would be great. I look forward to hearing from you on Sunday.
I think that you were probably mentally too old for primary school. In England, where I taught, kids went to secondary when they were eleven (like Class Five here). I actually think that 99.5% of them were ready to go to secondary school, but I have never managed to convince Irish teachers of this!

Message:I'll try to do it on Sunday. I was in 6xt class and when I left no one cried for us neither did we thought. But when I was in 2nd to 5ft they all cried. I think its stuipt to cry. I was excited to go to secondary.

Message:Cora: The extract of Chapter 5 sounds really good. I can't wait until it comes out. Did you plan what was going to happen before you wrote it or did you just write it as you went along?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Many thanks, Patricia, I'm very relieved that you think it sounds OK. I know that you have a very good ear for the way kids of your age talk so perhaps you could spare the time to write down a few typical remarks from boys and girls. That would really help me also - I will use the things that you and Ursula have sent.

Message:Alannah: Yes I'm in 1st year and i love it. It's way better than primary. No i haven't tried a publisher but my stories are way to short for it to be published.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Thanks, Ursula, that's brilliant. I put it on the end of my extract in the Story Club so that others can see it. I'll add in other ideas when they come in. I like the throwing paper bit and the humming. Of course I have only taught in Primary Schools - and in England they leave primary at eleven so I wouldn't know about too much bad behaviour.
It's a good idea to send it by the story club as the message board will only take a message of about 120 words.

Message:I've just put an extract from Chapter Five on to the Story Board. I need help in developing and extending the scene. Miss Clancy is a newly qualified teacher and she finds the first class in secondary just too hard to handle.
I would welcome any criticism if the language and expressions don't sound right to your ear. All help very gratefully received!

Message:Cora:I could help you with the young geoghapy teacher as I had a english student teacher. What really would you want and I will try to find some time. The idea about writing about I feel in diary form is a good idea. I will be putting down my own personal feelings in it and i waill carry it on until the year ends maybe. I rather writing down my feelings on paper.
Alannah: Your stories are probably great and I hope you get an offer. Just think of J.K Rowling she tried 3 publishers before she got an offer on Harry Potter and how big is that like? Shes a multi millionare. I hope you really like the story it might give you an idea on secondary school. What class are you in?

Message:Alannah: I wish you the very best of luck. I know what it is like hanging around for publishers. You need a lot of stamina, and a lot of luck. I suppose, though, that nothing equals the excitment of seeing your first book published and for sale in shops.

Patricia: I wonder could you help me. I need something - quite short in chapter five of 'Twice as Gorgeous', something where the class are teasing a young and inexperienced geography teacher. I'm not sure if that every happens in your school!
Also, what word would you use if you wanted to say that you hate something?
