Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Patricia: I very much liked the style of your story, but it did seem to have a few gaps in it. Try reading it aloud. I know it sounds stupid to sit in a room reading aloud to yourself, but it does work. You can always have the radio on so that your family don't think you're mad. It's even better to read it to someone, but they have to be really listening, not just pretending to listen

Message:Cora: Thank you so, so, so much for putting my story on the Story Board! I am really interested in entering my story in the competition. Do you think I should put the changes that you told me in it before I send it?
By the way, did you guess who had stolen the leather box in the story?

Message:Ursula: To enter a story, go to Story Club, then click on Story Club up on the top right-hand corner facing you. You will then see a form. You write your name, your age, and your school and then paste your story in. It's a good idea to do it in Word first and spellcheck it and start a new line when each new person starts to speak.

Message:Alannah: Your story is now on the Story Board and I've given you some advice about it. It's a wonderful story. I enjoyed it immensely. What I meant by Gothic Horror is a type of story where terrible things happen. I suppose you could say that the Baudelaire books are Gothic Horror.

The new closing date for the competition for a story set in a modern school in Ireland is February 15 2005. The story can be as long, or as short as you wish.

Message:Cora: Did you like my story? Are you going to put it on the Story Board?
By the way, is Gothic Horror a publisher?

Message:Dear Alannah,
I've just read your story - all 60 pages and 23,000 words of it, and I am quite flabbergasted. You are certainly a very talented girl.
I'll think about the possibilities of publishing and get back to you tomorrow. It would come under the heading of Gothic Horror, I suppose. I'm not sure what publishers' view on this are. Have any of your friends or your teacher, or parents read it?
Many, many congratulations. It's a wonderful achievement.

Message:It took me months to write the story! Do you think it'd be good enough to be published and if so could you help me choose a publisher?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Thanks for all the help - it's great (gr8?). Keep it coming. Yes, certainly Fern will go on being the main character in the second book, but Zara will certainly be in it. I'd say she will be more teenagery and moody, then.

The story competition is still open - in fact I think I'll extend the closing date, because, believe it or not, I only got four stories! I got about 26 at Christmas time. I'm going away next Friday so I will get Pete the Webmaster to shut down the website for about ten days then.

Please send more ideas and words. They are so useful because they trigger ideas in my head and I want to start planning the new 'Gorgeous'.

Message:Oh yeah as for the name for the book perhaps it could be "Even more Gorgeous" or maybe "Drop Dead Gorgeous"???

Message:cora: Are you going to write about Zara in the second Gorgeous???

Well if you did you could have her doing graffiti or something like that-i think that is something her character would do when she got to secondary!

Message:Ursula: That's brilliant! Thank you very much. I really like 'Twice as Gorgeous'. I'll have to see what my publisher says. Thanks for all the ideas. My mind is buzzing now.
By the way, I'd like some words that teens use - like awesome and cool (but I know these) and also words they use in text messaging. Put explanations, please.
By the way, do you know whether you can send text messages to someone in another country?

Alannah: I've got your story safely. It is long! Over 23,000 words. How long did it take you to write that? I'll try to read it tonight and then I'll put it on the Story Club Board. It looks very good.

Message:I just read the message about fashion and a name
lets see how about "Twice as Gorgeous"
Let me think words we use in fashion
theirs flairs-trousers flaired at bottom
Girls like their mini skirts,going out tops(skimpy tops you where to discos),Jeans of course,caps(peaked hats),spagetti tops in summer or string tops.
Theres not really any diffeent names for clothes mostly the same
Hope this helps
bye

Message:Hi Cora
i'm 15 so I would love to help you with anything you need to know about teenagers.
Teenagers are obsessed with their looks,love boys,hate school(most of them),don't get on with their parents,teenagers just find adults infuriating alot of the time and just want to be out of the house with their friends
Well thats my insight to teens in general
If you need any more help just post q's or something and i'll try help. I think its great a new gorgeous is coming out i loved the last one.
Talk to you soon
Ursula
