I learned a great deal more about sentence structure and punctuation and the ability to stretch a story. I feel more confident. I wanted to write my father's biography and thought that by doing the course I would make a much better job of it. I am pleased to say that it has been achieved, thanks to Jeff Toghill, and also my Comprehensive Writing tutor Tony Aldridge. Both men have been a tremendous asset to me, not only with their encouragement but also with their constructive criticism, which was greatly appreciated. I hope this will show up if and when I eventually get published.
