Message:Dear Patricia,
I really liked the two parts of the story about the girl with the disabled sister. I've got them safe and they are both very well written. The trouble is that you never finished the story and I think it's disappointing to the readers if the story isn't finished. Could you finish it and then send me the ending and I'll put it on the Story Board? I think you need to have some ending where the disabled girl proves that she is a real person and that she is valuable to her family and her able-bodied sister - but you may think of quite a different ending. The important thing is that the story must have an ending.

Message:Roisin & Shauna: I've put your story on the Story Board and I've given a few suggestions for improving it and making it easier to read.

I'm still waiting for the endings to several very good stories. There was a great one about a girl whose father is guard and she is being bullied. Please remember, everyone, that stories will only get put on the Story Board now if they have been finished so don't send them until they are finished - unless you want a tip on how to carry on.

Message:Alan: Book 14 of the Drumshee Timeline Series is now book 2 of the new Drumshee Chronicles. The name has been changed from 'Banished' to 'Treachery at Midnight'. It's the same book; just the name has been changed. You can see it on the bottom of the first page of this website. If you phone Eason's or O'Mahoney's bookshops they will tell you whether they have it in stock - I'd say that they do.

Patricia: Yes, I got my books on Thursday October 14 - six copies of each of them - it's always an exciting moment when the postman drives up the 150 metre avenue to my cottage and delivers a nice, fat parcel.

Message:Maryanna: To send your own story click on the words Story Club and then when you get that page fill in your name, school age etc. and send your story. Don't send a story, though, until it's completely finished. If you only want to do a bit of a story, just add your bit to the Stone Circle.
Jennifer: I suppose that depends on who says the story is good. A parent or teacher might say 'good' just to encourage you. A good story must be interesting and exciting and have a good beginning, a good middle and a good end.

Message:Laura & Naomi: Yes, Vivian and Clive were related but only very, very distantly. They would be able to marry each other as they were just related through great-great-great grandmothers.
Stephanie: Thanks for your story. It's a great idea for a story, but it's only an idea. Not enough happens in the story - the happy ending comes too quickly to make it a real story. If I were you I would work on it and make it exciting and tense and then perhaps you could have a happy ending, but at the moment it all comes too quickly and it wouldn't be a story that people would want to buy.
Patricia: The same thing applies to your stories - loads of good ideas, but you need to work on them in order to get your readers gripped.

Message:Lorna: If I were making up a story about the Haunted Castle I would think of a clever end and write that first. It could be that the ghost is friendly/unfriendly/true/not true – there is a lot of scope for imagination there. Think about it and then write your end. When you get to plan your story you should build in lots of tension – perhaps a bit where suddenly everything goes wrong and the main character is in terrible danger.
Jennifer: That’s very nice of you. I’m glad you like my books. I do get inspiration from real people sometimes. In ‘Secret Spy from Drumshee’ I was inspired by a real boy called Ronan Kildea who is very clever but suffers from cerebral palsy.

Message:Denise: I have loads of stories to go through and I have been away from home for most of October. Do make sure that you finish the new story that you are writing because I am only going to put good stories with a good end on the Story Club from now on.
Alice: To get on to the Story Club: go to the first page and click on story club – you’ll find yourself on the page where everyone adds a bit to a running story. On the top of that page on the right-hand side facing you is ‘Story Club’. Click on that and you’ll find yourself on the right page for entering a story.
