Tom retired from the U.S. Army some years ago, after twenty years of service, and began writing as a hobby. During his military service, as a senior Noncommissioned Officer they required him to take a DOD course for military style writing. This was the extent of Tom’s formal writing training. After retiring from the military he worked for the Postal Service.
A year ago Tom joined an online group called The Write Practice, www.thewritepractice.com there he learned and continues to improve his writing of short stories and longer works. The community in the forum there has helped Tom learn and grow.
Tom has a blog called Tom’s Musings, however it is down now undergoing some repairs. he post some of my work there.
