Message:Yes, Alannah, 11,000 would be fine. In fact, you can now have it as long as like as we have expanded the slot.

Message:Alannah: That would be a huge undertaking to retype 11,000 words. I wouldn't like to have to do that myself.
Why don't you copy it on to a floppy disk or on to a Cd and then transfer it to your laptop. Do you, or someone in your family own this computer that your story is on - or is it a school computer? Anyway, every computer will have either a floppy disk drive or a cd burner so you should be able to to transfer your story to the laptop. Don't even think of retyping - there must be an easier way.

11,000 words and you are only ten! Goodness, this must be a record!

Name: Alannah
Message:I think I've done about forty pages now. I'd have to print it out on the computer and the write it out onto the lap top. I can't go onto the Internet on the computer you see. It's about 11,000 words or more at the moment.

Message:Alannah: How long is that long story you talked about - the one that is 25 pages on Microsoft Word? I've found out that you can have about 9,000 words on the Story Club at the moment, but Pete says he can make it bigger if you like. Can you get back to me - tonight if possible, otherwise tomorrow.

Message:Patricia: Yes, that's fine - whenever you can spare the time.
Sean: Thanks for the praise. What did you think of the cover of 'Treachery at Midnight'?
Aimee: I seem to remember replying to you about the Famine. Was there something else? I couldn't find your original message. Perhaps you could ask me again whatever you wanted to know.
Sally: I loved that. Would you expand it to a full length story and I would be delighted to put it on the Story Board. It was very moving and I was dying to know what the problem was.

Message:Alright I won't say who killed him but I'll write the review as soon as I can but I don't write all the time like Alannah. You will have it after Christmas Hopefully!

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:I'm not sure how long your story should be Alannah. Did you make a plan? if so, you could send me the plan through the Story Club post and then I'll be able to judge whether you need two, or three, or even four more parts. It's hard to say at the moment.
By the way, where do you get all the time for writing? You are like a full-time writer!

Message:Hi Cora I've never written to your website before but I wanted to say that Treachery at Midnight was brilliant. I've read it twice and I think Columba was a great character. I loved Honey the dog, too.

Message:Dear Laura
This business of whether Clive and Vivien are related seems to keep coming up. This is how it works out: In the time of the Great Famine 1845, Martin McMahon and Fiona McMahon were brother and sister. Martin stayed in Drumshee and got married – his son Patrick was the father of Kitty (in the Titanic) so Kitty was his granddaughter and her daughter Vivien was Martin’s great-granddaughter. Fiona’s grandson was Bob Chandler and her great-grandson was Clive. This makes Clive and Vivien third cousins – not closely related. Certainly they would be free to marry. I wonder will they, though.

Perhaps someone would like to make a Family Tree for the McMahons of Drumshee and send it to the Story Club

Message:I sent you a story. Part 2 of it is coming very soon. I don't know how many parts I should do. How much parts do you think I should do?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Patricia: Yes, I'd love a review. If it's under 150 words it should fit on the message board, but if it's over that you could put it through the Story Club slot. By the way, don't give away the secret of who did the murder!
Alannah: I'm glad the book arrived safely.
Pauline: Sorry - no, I don't have any tapes of my books (though it's an idea that I will talk to my publisher about). Perhaps your grand-nephew might like 'Wolf in the Midnight Forest'. You can see about it in the 'Books' section of this website.

Message:Cora,

I quite understand the position about revealing the whereabouts of Drumshee. This time her visit will be short but next year I'll take her to the other site you mention. I've bought her the two Chronicle books for Christmas, her mother tells me she keeps re-reading the Timeline series. I'm now wondering if any of your books are on tape - her eight-year-old brother prefers listening to reading.

Message:Maryanna: I've just read your story and I thought it was great up to the time that her mother came in, but I thought that was a poor ending to it. It doesn't solve anything that she is just going to move away. I think a reader of the story would be very disappointed by this ending. Don't rush - you have all of January to do it. I think that should just be chapter one of your story.

Message:Claire: Sorry, I got you and Emma mixed up. I think the number of words depends on the story and on the age of the person writing, but it should probably be at least 700 words.
