Name: Ursula
Message:Hi Cora
The story is progressing nicely and I actually have a plan for how some of the next few chapters should go and then hopefully it will be alright by the end.
Ya I actually am a huge fan of Claire Hennessy. I've read all her books and I actually remember seeing her on open house years ago after school, she was talking about dear diary and she was the same age as my sister at the time and I remember thinking how great it would be to be an author at that age and how lazy my sister is. That girl has 2 books written and my sister does nothing. Anyways thanks for looking at the story and yourr constant help, it's really appreciated and keeps me writing

Actually, when I first wrote that story a long time ago, I wasn't planning on adding more, but I think I will, it'll help me get used to writing stories again!
Alannah: Thanks! I wasn't going to add more, but you and Cora have encouraged me, Thanks!

Message:Ursula: I think you are about half way through now - I think I made it to be about 16,000 words. That's great. I think the story is going very well and is the sort of thing that teenagers would like to read.

Alannah: Your story is going very well, also. Just try to sort out the historical period -look in a history book and then give me some idea of when you are writing about. It makes a great difference for clothes, kitchens, language etc.

I just submitted 2 year's of mayham again with lot's more added. I gave you the whole lot again as I have changed bits of dialogue on part one so I thought I'd give you all of it together. You can then delete the one on the story club and put this one on. Let me know what you think!

Message:Heather: I love your new story 'Cold'. Please, please, please write more onto it.
Cora: Yeah, I suppose my new story is a historical novel. I'm trying to think of a title now.

Message:Heather: With the story you started, you could switch, in the next paragraph to an 'authorial voice' and tell what happened in the car crash and about the little girl.
Then you could start a new paragraph or chapter and deal with the person, or people who will find the child and rescue her. This is where forward planning comes in. You could perhaps have a group of travellers, or perhaps a woman whose four-year-old child died last year or perhaps a woman policeman just starting a new job and hating it. Make the people very real and don't let the reader have too many clues about the rest of the story.

Message:Heather: it's lovely to hear from you. Don't worry about feeling stuck for the moment. It happens to many writers and you are an excellent one. I loved your school crisis stories. Would you think of joing in the group story? That might get you going again. I will do a story competition again - probably next month.

Message:Hi Cora! It's Heather, I'm really sorry I disappeared for ages, I've just been stuck for words in stories, and I've been busy. I've started about 10 stories and can't get going on them! I feel like I just can't write anymore! Anyway, hope you had a nice summer, are you doing any story competitions soon? I'd like to have a topic to write about!

Message:Alannah: It's great to hear from you again. I've been wondering how you were getting on with your story writing.
Would you like me to put your beginning of the story on the Story Board now, or do you want to wait?

Thanks. What is your book about? All your other stories I've read have been very good.
Hi Brittany:
Thanks. Hosea is a Catholic, or maybe just religous, term that means 'give thanks'.

Message:Bridget: Thank you. You're writing's very good too. You have a very good vocabulary.
Cora: I just sent you the first chapter of a story I was thinking of writing a few days ago. The thing is, I forgot to put the title on it because I'm still thinking of it. I'll let you know when I have to title for it.

When was the last time you were on here? I hope you have good luck with your book, and that you start writing on the website once you've finished it. Your writing is great!

Message:Hi Cora! Do you still remember me? I haven't been on the website in ages because I've been really busy writing a story to send to Puffin or something. I'm taking my time with it though, because I want it to be perfect.
I might write a story to send to you now. Bye!

I think the story is going wonderfully and I can't wait to read how you will end it.

Message:Claire: I wish you the best of luck and I think you are quite right. Now is the time to get an ambition and to work towards its fulfilment. It will be too late to do that in four years time.

Bridget: I think you were right to finish the story as it's important to practise drawing stories to a conclusion. Even if you plan a long novel, you should plan the ending first.

Alison: There should be a new Gorgeous book sometime soon. It's called 'Twice as Gorgeous' - a title invented by Ursula who writes to this website

Message:Hi Cora
I've just read Gorgous and its the best book I've ever read. It really seems to be about girls of my age. You must know lots of them to be able to write so well about us.

Message:Hi Claire:
You're studying to be a doctor? That's really neat! I'm thinking of being a lawyer, like my dad. But if I wasn't going to be a lawyer, I'd probably chose to be a docter or nurse.
Hi Cora:
Thanks. I was thinking of the baby having some problems, and then living through them, but I figured that the story was fine just having the baby.

Message:Hi Cora & Hi Bridget
I just want to say that I may not have too much time to be writing to the website for a while. I seem to have loads and loads of homework. I'm very ambitious and I hope to be a doctor and that means getting almost perfect marks in your leaving cert (the exam we take at eighteen, Bridget) I need something like 580 points out of 600 so I am going to start work now and aim to be at the top of the class for everything.
I thought your story about your ancestors is really cool Bridget. You could write a Drumshee book (kindof) book about it.
Cora: I will always love my drumshee books and whenever I'm tired or a bit down I read them again and again.

Message:Aoife: I am looking forward to my visit. I love going to Kerry and crossing over on the ferry at Tarbert. It feels like going on holiday.
I hope your class will send me lots of stories. I remember you as a talented young writer.
I'm looking forward to meeting lots of you this winter. I am just doing my schedule, but remember, your teacher must be the one to invite me to your school.
