A Simple Man said:"Simple" also serves as my primary disclaimer, since I have no formal training in the art of "writing". What I do have is a relentless and ever growing pressure to write something, anything. My twenty year long resistance finally failed several months ago, so here I am, ready to see where this leads.

SkullFarmer said:Personally, I have always subscribed to the idea that simple is usually best. After all, what is really better or less convoluted than a kiss from your girl (or guy), a good cup of coffee or a random chance conversation from which you learn something valuable?

Don't worry too much about formal trainig. I don't have much. You can pick up the basics in lots of instuctional books. 'Elements of Style' is a classic that deals with mechanics, and I like 'Steering the Craft' and 'Aspects of the Novel' for theory. Remember, if you can read, you can write.
