My journey to become a published writer wasn’t easy. In 2006 I enrolled in my local college to join other mature students in an adult learning scheme to help people who left school unable to read and write. The class I was in had a mixed collection of people who all had different levels of abilities.
My friend Nicky Slade asked me to blog about my experiences, which I did at the time. As you will soon learn things didn’t go according to plan and will see that I didn’t use people’s real names for obvious reasons. Below is the list of my recent posts about my classes back in 2006 as I struggled to learn English grammar as part of my journey to become a published writer.
I hope you enjoy reading them.
