looking for some help using this site, not only am i knew to this site but knew to writing hubs
Start by poking around in the Learning Center. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/contents
There you can find many articles to get you started. Lots of luck!
This is good advice. And also, if you don't know the difference between new and knew, then your English needs a lot of work.
Don't forget the importance of capitalizing the personal pronoun 'I', the first word of a sentence, using punctuation... I didn't want to point out the homophone mistakes before, but you're absolutely right, Sally's Trove!
To be recognized as a 'good' writer here on HubPages, donnalouise, it's important to edit before you publish or write a forum topic. Again, lots of luck!
You need to check you spelling and punctuation on your hub if you want to make it as a writer. Also, tighten up you sentence structure.
donnalouise, my heart goes out to you, for a number of reasons.
First, I have a dear cousin whose name is Donna Louise. And so I have an immediate affection for you via your name.
Second, I see that you have much you want to share, some of it very painful.
Third, HupPages is not a place for personal diary-type entries, unless you categorize them in "Fiction".
And last, this is a friendly place. There's lots of good conversation in the forums and also an opportunity to engage with others through their comments to your Hubs and your comments to theirs. All of this takes time.
For now, you need to construct your Hubs with a view toward what you can give to, share with, others. This is not, NOT, a place to pour your heart out as if it were a chat room or a personal diary.
I encourage you to write here. It's a matter of using your life's knowledge and sharing its experiences with others because you have something to give, not because you only have a need to vent or take.
Best wishes to you...
Thank you for your responses, yes there is a lot I need to learn but enjoy writing short story's so thought this would be a great site to start.
I have deleted my hub as this was just a good place to express in a form I love; there was not much thought or care put into the English.
Thanks again for the advice

Although I have got several articles accepted by Constant Content (and 1-2 other strict websites), I am still not 100% confident in my work sometimes when it involves comma usage. For example, sometimes I write...

Can you give a few pointers to a 'newish' writer?Do you have any Do's and Don't's?I will start with - "Never, ever use exclamation points." Use words not punctuation to display the mood.

Why can't people on Hubpages disagree without attacking others?Opposing positions can lead to a better understanding. Personal attacks say a lot about the commenters' inability to discuss a matter intelligently.

The reason I ask this is because I just had a hub edited to change one comma, placed outside quote/speech marks, as per correct British punctuation, to reflect US style. That was the only edit.I don't mind in this case...
