I didn't get no college degree. So mah spell'n and grammar might not bes so gud. I's been working on it though. Threw hard work and patience it's gotten better. It's my major pitfall. I've started working on short stories and I intend to publish a novel at some point. The short stories have allowed me practice and elevate my writting into better prose. My hope is, with time, I won't require 6 passes for grammar and spelling errors.
I've worked in the casino industry as a craps/blackjack dealer for the last 16 years. It's given me an insight into people. I've found that during emotionally stressful times the social mask slips and we can see the "true" person. I hope to share this knowledge in my writing.
