    First let me introduce myself.
    My name is Eddy, I'm 42 and I have always loved writing random stuff, but I have never had the confidence to put anything on the net.

    I have recently enrolled on a adult education course, set up by the Government, for people that did not do well at school and left without any exam results.

    I am enjoying the course though a bit boring at times, but I feel I have made great progress already. (5 x 2 hour lessons)
    I still have a disruptive nature, especially when I find it hard to concentrate, but i am not as bad as i was 30 years ago.

    I know that life will be hard for me in my later years, as i have no savings or pension setup, so I am hoping to get good enough to make a small income from writing when I retire.

    I know I have a long way to go with my grammar and punctuation, and my vocabulary is also very limited still, but I feel i'm on my way. 

    I have just become a member here and created a couple of Hubs, but I dont wanna do all the hard work only to find I am not quite there yet.

    I dont want a review or praise, just honest opinion, and I'll try not to get to defensive.
    I'll take it like a man.

    please leave comment here, I dont want it to seem like I am trying to get feedback to my hub.

    Thanks Eddy.

      Eddy,

      Welcome to HP.

      It a very good start! You may to double check some spelling and correct it. You can put some more capsules about news, amazon or you tube video related to the subject, it may make your hub look and read bit nicer.

      Eddy, I am only about 10 days ahead of you in all this so I am not a great one to give advice.  I, personally, enjoyed your hubs. I can really relate since I just turned 40 this year.  Although I have two college degrees, it has been so long since I had to worry about grammar, I am basically having to start over in it also. Keep writing, and besides your classes, the internet has some great resources on grammar.  I believe I have even seen a few hubs on specific grammar issues.

    I think you're someone to be admired... especially for your honesty. You have a natural style and rhythm which I found a pleasure to read. You may say you have limited vocab but it wasn't evident; online readers don't want to turn to the dictionary when they read anyway. Find a buddy to proof-read your work, especially for spelling and punctuation; submit when you have this perfect and you will come off as a far more professional writer. As you progress you will naturally make better linkages from paragraph to paragraph. Always work towards your conclusion, and try to have that conclusion be your own unique take on the world. I'm sure you have plenty to say given how self-aware you obviously are.

    Please don't get defensive - the above represents my honest opinion wink

    Thanks for the comments, very helpful
    got as far as commas, at collage and was getting to paragraphs.

    I found commas quiet confusing and am never sure if I am putting to many in or not enough.
    Like you say 'time and practice.'
    I found the bit about conclusion very helpful, as I tend to have the writers version of just rambling on and away from the subject.

    Will try harder
    Eddy

    "but I dont wanna do all the hard work only to find I am not quite there yet."

    Only if you do the hard work you'll find out if you're ready. It's more important to write something and then to see why it's doing well or not. Once you've written a few hubs people can give suggestions on how to improve your hubs. It could be that you need to write more hubs first to improve your writing style but in any case it takes hard work and persistence to earn money online.
