Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Vicky: That's fine - it's just that I don't want this to become a chat room where people say anything they want, knowing that they can hide behind an assumed name.
I'm just going to put your two stories on the Story Board.

Message:Aideen: I am looking forward to my visit to your school, also, Aideen. I always enjoy Cork and I know I have a lot of fans there.

COULD EVERYONE REMEMBER THAT I NEED REAL NAMES FOR STORY CONTRIBUTIONS. IF THE GIRL WHO IS CALLING HERSELF FERN WOULD LIKE TO WRITE TO ME THROUGH THE STORY CLUB AND TELL ME WHY SHE IS NOT USING HER REAL NAME THEN I WILL THINK ABOUT IT. CONTRIBUTIONS THROUGH THE STORY CLUB ARE PRIVATE TO ME ONLY.

Message:Hi Cora
Just before we broke up for the summer holidays our teacher told us that you had agreed to come and see us in September. We're soooo looking forward to seeing you. You have great fans here in Cork.

This is one of the endings:
She closed the book and finally knew the nightmare was over.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Sara: You are by no means the only one with this problem. I get loads of stories which are really just the opening of a story. A story is not a story unless it has an ending. Why don't you practise writing a few xciting and dramatic endings which hint at a great story. When you get a really good ending, you could try writing a story to fit that ending. It could be something like this:
'And her life was never the same again. She had learned that people whom she had trusted were not worthy of her trust. But she had gained one good friend and that made everything that she had suffered seem worthwhile.'
I'm sure you can think of something better!

Message:alexia: No, I'm certainly not saying that. The more you write, the better you become and it's a great idea to experiment with all types of writing. Generally, however, the best writing comes from writing about things and people that you know.
Another point is that publishers are aware that twice as many ten-year-olds buy books as compared with thirteen-year-olds!
Are you thinking of writing a story yourself?

Message:Cora, Are you saying to Alannah she shouldn't write about 13 year olds because she is not thirteen?

Message:Alannah: I was thinking about you last night and about your ambition to get a book published. I think what would suit your type of writing is to take your own age group, and your own school setting and then turn it into a fantasy. What with the phenomenal success of Harry Potter publishers are really into fantasy at the moment and you do fantasy very well.

Aisling: I'm glad you like 'Gorgeous'. Most people seem to do so, though one woman didn't like it.

Message:Alexia: I think any of you can do this, but to write a book takes a lot of hard work and of application.
No publisher will look at a book which is under about eight thousand words - about twenty-four pages of A4 double-spaced.The publisher will then have a look and try to decide if 4,000 people will buy this book. If they don't think about 4,000 people will buy; well, they won't publish.

Message:Heather: I'll see if I can find the last bit - Bridget wrote it and it was a great ending.

I don't really want pen names on this site. It's not a chat room - just a website for people who like my books and or who, perhaps, have met me.

Alexia: Do you mean a book on this website? Like, for instance, Alannah is doing with her story 'Thirteen - Yeah Right!'

Message:Hi Cora,
I know I havn't been on the website recently, and you know the storyclub story THE CAVE, I never saw the end of it, and I was wondering if you could put it on the storyboard? I'd like it if you could, because you can't read have a story and not see the last bit!

Message:I'm sorry that I haven't been putting comments on the story, but I will from now on. It is beginning to take a very exciting turn.

I had to delete one entry as it did not make sense with everything else.

By the way, please remember that you must use your real name - not a made up one.

Message:Some great entries in the new story. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

Alannah: I think you need a plan - in a way, a story should be an unravelling of a plot - you should decide originally what your ending should be and then everything in the story should lead to it.
Sarah: My publisher for 'Gorgeous' is Mentor. Have a look at the books page (you can click on it from the menu on the top of the first page of this website) and then you will see details of all my publishers.

Message:Cora: I don't really have a plan for an ending. Maybe I could make Jainie and Rachel become friends again, and Jainie realising that its not all about clothes and you don't have to have a fashionable friend to look pretty. Something like that.
