Message: The message that i posted there, looks a bit rude and I'm sorry, but the storyline is a good one, and I hope that you will let me do it, but it is a storyline that finishes the story, but I promise it is a really good one, and I am asking will all the story club people leave Mags John and Declan alive, and I'm also asking, will the story club members let me finish the story when ther time comes, I know this sounds selfish, but I really think the storyline is good.
But of course, you to can write in this story and so thats why I am asking, but if you don't want to keep any of these alive, thats your choice and if you want to finish the story its your choice too.

Message:Bridget: It's interesting that your mother had a similar experience. I would agree with her that I have never stopped learning. I am sixty-six and I am still learning. Archaeology is my latest craze.

Message:Cillian: thank you very much for your message. i do appreciate - and I appreciate you sending it to me privately. I am getting my webmaster to look into it. Was it on the message board, or on other pages? If you could tell us that it would be very useful.
About my illness, this started off as very bad asthma and bronchitis and then seemed to develop into three or four bouts of pneumonia and pleurisy and then to crown it all I had rheumatic fever. All in all, I spent about seven years in and out of hospital and id little other than read and make up stories during that time.

There have been tons of times when I can't stop typing. It's not a bad thing. I guess you already knew that, though.

Message:I asked you only today as I seen that you had said something to BRidget about it,
You see I just can't stop typing this is my third message in a row, where I could have easily put it into one, whereas instead I looked at what I wrote and then wrote more, and now I just keep writing, does anyone else just keep writing and cannot stop, wait I'm going to stop now. Stopping. Nearly stopped. Stopped.

Message:Hi Cora:
My mom was sick a lot when she was that age too. But once she herself had left school, she became a professor, so she never stopped learning.

Message:Edwina: it's always great to have a description of the people who come on the website. I can visualise them then, and, in a way, they become friends.
Bridget: I'm glad that you found the advice interesting.
I'm very interesting in your home-schooling. I myself didn't really go to school between seven and fourteen - due to illness - and I think the love I got of history and of literature during these years stayed with me all of my life whereas things I learned in school vanished once I had done my Leaving Certificate.

Message:Hi Cora:
Thanks for the advice. I have a way of giving too many big descriptions and losing somebody's intrest really fast. I think your advice will help a lot.
Hi Edwina:
The description you gave of yourself sounded kind of like me. There are probably people who think I'm like a mouse. Or maybe just a clutz. I can fall off my chair when I'm barely moving.
Hi Brittany:
School isn't that bad. If I do things as fast as I can, then sometimes I can be finished by noon to one o' clock. Since I'm homeschooled, the hours I spend on school are really up to me.

Message:Hi cora
for my description I think I am a small 11 year old, I am so quiet sometimes that my uncle always says "Hello mouse!", I have long dark brown hair, I have a lot of friends and I like playing with babies, I like helping people with schoolwork and coming to the library to use the internet and to read your books. Hope you enjoyed my letter,
Edwina.

Message:Stories continued:
When you're telling a story, try to imagine you are holding the attention of a fidgety class. Spin it out, be dramatic, hint at what is to come, tease your reader; build in surprises.
When I say include description - don't have big wodges of it in the beginning of the story - scatter it through the story - use adverbs. Don't just put 'he said' but put: 'he shouted angrily': 'she answered tearfully': 'she said sternly, looking straight into his eyes, which she noticed, for the first time, were intensely blue'.

Message:About stories:
I think that the problem with many young people's stories is that they are imagined like a film or movie: this means that you get lots of excited dialogue and fast action but very little describing what the characters are feeling or where the scene is set. the result, lacking the pictures of a real movie, is usually not good.

Message:Bridget: No one is ever ready to start school after the summer - teachers as well as pupils. I can remember the feeling! I have a friend who, like me is retired, and we always phone each other on the first day back and say: 'Isn't it great to be retired!'

Message:Hi Cora:
I've been having some ideas for a story, but the way I think of them, they're more like a movie than a book. Do you have any suggestions?
Hi Claire:
Have you started school yet? Is it your regular school or are you new?
