I've been lurking around the forums for a while now but I am really hoping to take part a lot more and be a more active member. I've always been reluctant to write because I always thought that my vocabulary wasn't big enough but quite recently I've had many friends as well as my partner tell me that I should write an autobiography as I've lived a fairly hard life. Although, I still think that it could have been worse and I got out quite lucky. Before I attempt an autobiography though, I want to write a lot of short stories to build my skill set up so I am hoping that this site can help me in this as what I have seen so far, everybody is willing to help out. Thank you.
