I am 58 years old, living in Columbus, Indiana. The extent of my writing has been limited to letters to the editor, which caused me problems, I was asked to work for a campaign. Thank God for the Hatch Act.
Anyway, about two years ago I decided to put to paper, a story that has been running around in my head for longer than I will admit. I have other stories I am working on, but idea if they are any good to both grammar and content.
I came here to this site because I want constructive opinions that will help me grow as a writer and help me learn the grammar I have forgotten over the decades since school.

Welcome aboard Gregg! Cant wait to see some of your work! The best idea I can give is to read, write, and critique. A mixture of all three will help immensely comparatively to just writing or just reading. Good luck and may your pages be ever full.

Jake.

Indeed welcome Gregg , nice to meet you.


You will fit in with most of those who wonder the passageways of the treehouse.

Grammar seems to be a forgettable subject...I needed to buy a couple of books on the subject.

So when you explore on your own do be careful if you see a unicorn. She can be snarky or nasty.
