newbie, willing to learn

I would like to take this opportunity to say hello to everyone. I have recently begun to write creatively; I am hooked on writing, though my grammar lets me down. I now wish to develop my craft. That drive has brought me here! I am hooked on both the complexity and the flexibility of the subject. I bow down to those of you who have mastered this, and hope you rub off on me. 

For fun please correct my above paragraph. After that, I graciously ask, if you see me on here asking a question, know i am not asking for free proof reading, I have a genuine desire to learn.

ps. none of my mistakes are intentional. be gentle.

Hello, Bisleybob, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange!

Your Displayed Name is very amusing. I assume it's a play on "Beelzebub."

You haven't made any major mistakes in the paragraph in question. The semicolon in the second sentence is questionable, as is your use of "this" in "those of you who have mastered this." If you mean for "this" to refer to "the subject," I recommend using "it" instead. If you mean for "this" to refer to "the complexity and the flexibility of the subject," I recommend using "these." 

It is good that you have not joined the forum for free proofreading services, as that is not what G.E. is for. On the basis of your writing, I think that you are very likely a native speaker of English. The best way to ask questions about your writing here is to try to identify what you are uncertain about in a given sentence and make that the topic of a thread, using more examples if possible.

Again, welcome to the forum.
