I confess I am a lifelong storyteller. Many years (decades) ago, in school, I was bored and would look out the classroom window and wonder what the birds outside would say to each other. In one class, I was instructed to write a poem; I submitted the lyrics to "Last Kiss" by J Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers. I was also told I would never be a writer because I had no life experiences. I dropped out of school. Perhaps this also explains my lack of grammar skills.
Any advice you can provide me will be greatly appreciated.
