Getting started

So, let's start with some thoughts on why I write.

I've had stories in my head for as long as I can remember, most of which haven't gone anywhere - but some have hung around, bugging me until I told them.   So, partly it's about maintaining my sanity!

I also flatter myself that my grammar and syntax are at least as good as the best authors' - and a darn sight better than most.   So, I feel I need to share with the world what good writing is.   Arrogant?   Maybe, but it's meant as a simple statement of truth.

Storytelling is an art and the only way to improve one's art is to practice.   And there are many, many ways to practice.   Writing a blog for example!   As long as I don't get too distracted by the blog to write any fiction :D
