To Verity Breezy Midnight,
are you asking people to continue your book in imaginethat if so this is mine.Continuing from I wish Esme would just do that. I wish my Mum was here she would guide me she would reassure me but she's not. She's DEAD.I can still remember her of course, she was tall with long black hair and vibrant sapphire blue eyes she had a sweet powdery smell but when I was 5 or 6 she got really sick and died so thats how 9 years later I've ended up with Esme. The worst stepmum possible.
Please don't copy this but because it's mine,

Truthful Windy Moon: Story Starter:
Key: Capitals mean italics.
Later on that day, Esme slithered into my room, like a venomous snake coming to attack its prey. "Go away." I whispered, my voice trembling with fear. She grinned slyly, tapping on my bedside table with her long, claw-like red nails. "Stevie wants you down for dinner." she said, suddenly scowling furiously at me. I blinked. "WHO?" I said drowsily. "Steve! Your FATHER." she said, as if I were dumb. I sighed. The future lay in my father's hands...

(the best contiuance gets a friend request, a shoutout, and a book dedicated to them!)
I couldn't bear it anymore.
How dare she?
She wasn't even my mom, or anybody else, for that matter, she was just a selfish, tactless stranger that married my dad.
I wanted to scream at her, tell her the truth, but mom always remarked: If you haven't got anything nice to say, keep your mouth shut.
I wish Esme would do just that.

The Gossip: Tips
These are to make The Gossip easier and suitable for you all to use. Messages containing the following might not necessarily be deleted but they might be edited to make them appropriate:
- Use a SPOILER alert! If you are giving away plots about any of Jacqueline’s books so other users who may not have read the book will know you are giving away some of the story. This is what the SPOILER alert is for. Think ‘By saying this, am I going to SPOIL the enjoyment of the book for people who haven’t read it?’ To add a spoiler alert just type – in CAPS to make it more impactful – SPOILER ALERT! At the start of your message!
- Try not to post repetitive topics, for example: before starting a new topic, check if someone else has already started a similar one, you could join their chat.
- Avoid typing rows and rows of emoticons or single letters or characters like exclamation marks – messages packed with these only clog up the system and we’ll probably delete them so they don’t block other messages
- Stay on topic of other posted threads. Make sure you read what others have written and you are responding to that conversation. If you want to start a new topic, think about what you want to talk about and make sure you title your topic clearly.
- Watch your sense of humour, posts may be read by people from a variety of backgrounds and ages.
- Talking about sensitive subjects: We think it’s great that you feel you can post your dilemmas and give advice to each other. However, we won’t be allowed to post problems of a very serious nature. If you feel like you’re in trouble and have no-one or no-where to turn, please contact Childline who will be able to help you: 0800 1111
- And finally, please be patient! Because we have to check every message for all of the above, and because so many of you are using The Gossip, sometimes it can take a while for your message to appear. If you’ve respected the above rules and guidelines then your message WILL appear eventually
Despite the above Tips and our vigilance, if you strongly feel that any particular post should not be on the board then please do email us at email@example.com.
Thanks for reading! The Jacqueline Wilson website team! xoxoxo
