Hi All, My name's Russell. I'm from Australia and after 25 years of thinking about it, I've finally decided I should act on my wish to write something for posterity. It's quite overwhelming, trying to sort through the amount of information on the Internet available on writing. The abundance of information makes it difficult to know where actually to start. Hopefully those of you more experienced than me will accommodate some of my questions that, while maybe being obvious, are difficult needles to find in the haystacks of information. I'll follow up with specifics in some of the other sub-forums. Russell.
