Message:Ursula! That's brilliant! I'm so delighted for you. So, now is it full-steam ahead for an equally brilliant Leaving Cert. or are you taking a year off for Transition Year.
Bridget: I'm sure that will take a very long time. Don't worry about reviews. Your story is getting on very well and the last bit that you added to the group story is excellent.
Alison & Clodagh: Thanks for the reviews. I agree with Claire - they are both very original and sound very natural.

My brother and I will have to wait a while to get the books. We order them through Barnes and Noble, so they take a while to get here.

My mum says she'll get the two new books for me tomorrow when she goes into Cork. I'm looking forward to a good read over the weekend. I won't have so much homework then. I'll send a review then for the Review Competiition.
Clodagh and Alison: I like your reviews. They read very naturally. I get bored with all of this ten out ten business.

Message:Hi Cora,
Clodagh bought Doomed to Die and I bought A Life for a Life so now we are going to swop books. Here is my report on A Life for a Life.
A Life for a Life is an exciting and romantic story. It's a bit like an Irish Romeo and Juliet. I thought the characters were very well drawn and I loved Shane and Fidelma. they were my favourite characters in the book.
I'm dying to go and see King John's Castle in Limerick again. I went there a long time ago with my school but you have really brought it to life.
I think this book is excellent for both boys and girls. The boys will enjoy the battle and the bits about the castle and the escape and the girls will love the romance and the beautiful descriptions of the clothes.

Message:Hi Cora,
I've just read Doomed to Die and I think it's gr8. it's your best book ever. I thought Nessa was a wonderful character, I was in tears for her and that bit in the middle - you know the bit I mean I won't spoil it for others talking about it but during that bit I was just so tense that I didn't even breathe until I finished the chapter. It was very dramatic.
I loved the ending. It rounded everything off beautifully.

Message:hi cora
Thanks for the advice and for reading it again. I will listen into the lad's at school talking . Don't worry though the girls will come across some problems with the lads soon. I have a plan to interrupt the perfect life the girls have with their boyfriends and create some problems in the relationship perhaps David may see some one else and Mary finds out and something different will happen with June and Ryan.
Thanks again for reading it yet again!
Your help is what keeps me writing and editing!

Message:Heather: I'm just putting your story on now. You are getting back into your stride, I think.

Ursula: I was reading through your story last night and I was thinking that the boys are not quite as good characters as the two girls. They seem a bit too good, if you know what I mean. Try listening in bit to boys' talk (not the bad language) and make them a bit moody on occasion - as teenagers are.

Message:Bridget: I think that last message was for you, from Ursula - I've done that sort of thing myself a couple of times!

Your question is a very interesting one. I think why you are feeling slightly dissatisfied with your story is that it lacks a focus. When I do story writing in schools I always advise starting with a main character and then giving that main character a fairly serious problem to solve - this may be a moral dilemma, it may be physical danger, or it may be an impossible situation. The working out of this problem is what gives focus to the story and makes the plot of the story. If you work like this then you are forced to have the end of the story in view while you are writing the beginning and the middle bits.
