Message:Well, one book, book 6 of the London Murder Mysteries, has gone off to my editor yesterday, but the other I am still struggling with bits that just don't quite hang together.

Minnie: I know what you mean and I suggested that you put a few thoughts in between the lines of dialogue - thoughts can be serious, deep, emotional and sentimental, while the dialogue remains airy, light and 'young teen'.

Name: Minnie
Message:My story is very hard to write, Cora, without it turning into chick-literature. Its so hard to get it more adult than chick. Anyway, I agree, if I feel the same as Clara then I can use this to my advantage!
Anyway put a new bit up
Minnie :) xx

Message:Also - postpone the bit about telling the mother - after all you wished that you had spoken out when Ria died so this contradicts it. You can imagine the conversation if you like - but don't do it.
I'd say that you should concentrate on helping Ria to hide the effects while at the same time trying to persuade her to give up. Let her drop some hints about the bullying also.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Nora: I think you are rushing along too fast - a typical fault in a beginner writer.

You have loads of material but you're trying to get it out in too much of a hurry.

Do a bit more about the party - and then when you come to the person in the hood do some sort of description where s/he can be recognised again. It could be an odd way of walking or a strange voice - something that you will be able to bring in when you bring your story to a close.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Nora: I've put it first so you should be able to find it - it's a combination of your three ideas.

James: Wolf was a very loved dog of mine and I'm glad that kids enjoy the book about him.

Rachael: Do you like living in Dublin?

Message:I answered them straight away, MIchaela.
Here they are again:

Michaela's questions:
would you write another one of your books?
Not Drumshee ones.
Was it fun writing books?
Yes I enjoy it.
How did you get the idea of Titanic voyage? Seeing the film.
How many schools would you go to a year?
I used to do loads and this year, so far, I've done one and only intend to do one more.

Message:Lily: I'm more interested in the short story idea - I WISH I HAD LISTENED. I rarely like children's poems - the struggle for a rhyme always makes them sound contrived and insincere.

Any ideas yet? You could start with a list of 7 chapters - fill your seven pages.

Message:Minnie: I love it - do keep within the limits of your age and your experience. Put down all of your dreams and don't try to pretend to be older than you are. Believe me, your feelings at the moment are unique and many an older writer would pay to be able to emperience them.
