Children’s Story Books

In English we’re creating story books for children. These stories are written up and illustrated by ourselves. We form groups to create the books, which then get sent out to primary school children in our local area πŸ˜ŠπŸ“

My group consists of me, Caoimhe O’Donnell, Caoimhe Doherty, Rachel Kelly and Gemma Brogan. I’m so grateful to have such a hardworking team, who can all draw ! I’m in the charge of the actual story and the writing up of it.. more because I can’t draw 😬✏️

Our story is about an elephant named Eva who doesn’t like school because she doesn’t have any friends, until one day she’s invited to join in a game of Hide n Seek and meets two new friends. Eva quickly changes her mind about school because now she has two new bestfriends. 

I’ve really enjoyed this task and can’t wait to see the finished product πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›


Six Word Story πŸ”‘

Turns out Six Word Stories are as fond of me as I am of them, on a lucky streak this year as another one of my stories featured in the Irish Independent.

It was my daddy who told me the news and I honestly didn’t believe him. “Naw couldn’t have happened again” was my exact words.

I am thrilled to say the least and I’m really enjoying doing something I’m good at ☺️ Transition Year is bringing out the best in me this year.

Below is the Typorama I made with my story that featured at the weekend.

Six Word Story πŸ”‘

“Write a story in 6 words, and gooooooo!”

Harder than it sounds believe it or not, 6 word stories are becoming quite a hobby of mine, it’s amazing how 6 words can suddenly make you think about a whole backstory belonging to a stranger. 

A few weeks back my 6 word story featured in the Irish Indepent and luck struck again over Mid-Term when another of mine got in! Not only was I buzzing from featuring in the national paper again, my friend Niamh also featured with me, not often does that happenπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

My story was “Photos erased, but not the memories.”

Niamh and I were proud as punch as you can tell, from the photo below, which no lie took us 2736627 times to get the “perfect one” πŸ“Έ 

I’m buzzing yet again and I’m aiming for the winning story now β˜ΊοΈπŸ…

Six-Word StoryΒ 

As part of our Creative Writing module we do 6 word stories. These 6 word stories then get forwarded on to the Irish Independent and have a chance of being selected to feature in the paper. I have been sending mines in for about 4-5 weeks now and really didn’t expect it to be selected at all. But last weekend, typical Saturday night of me laying doing nothing, mammy spotted my name feature in last week’s 6 word stories. I then checked my email and MsO’Donnell had emailed me that morning to let me know that I featured in it! My story was “A ring, but no love involved.” It is about two people that never truly love each other but stay married just for show. There was no real inspiration to this it just kind of came to me. I was buzzing to say the least and I hope I have luck strike again for me sometime this coming year ! πŸ“šπŸ’
