I started this website  to put up a collection of True Life Stories from my own life online. Each True Life Story was written by me based on my memory of those real life incidents in my spare time. I re-experienced those incidents many times again, as I wrote and edited them here. Each story took me about three days to write and edit many times, as my memory kept clearing up and to ensure that the true life stories I am writing are enjoyable to myself first before my readers. Only when I am myself satisfied with a true life story, do I put it here on my website. I will be publishing at least one story a week.
