    Hello !

    Hi !

    My name is Carine, I'm 20 years old and... I'm French ! I want to challenge myself and try to write in another language. :)

    I study creative writing at the University, and I consider participating in a exchange to study creative writing in US (France is just beginning to teach this field, so courses aren't really interresting). But it's a little bit hard for me to write correctly in english.

    I LOVE writting and, particulary, science-fiction or fantasy stories. At the moment, I write a fantasy novel and I'm going to participate in Nanowrimo (and make a success of it)

    Otherwise, I like reading (my favourite books are : Harry Potter (it's my childhood!) ; A Resurrection of Magic by Kathleen Duey), watching some televisions soap (like Doctor Who, Supernatural), ridding horses and drawing.

    So... I hope I have not make too many faults

    Hi Carine!

    Welcome to the forum! Nice to meet other writers whose first language isn't English. :) I also love riding horses -- and Supernatural! :D

    I sympathize with your language-learning quest. I'm studying French... it's not very easy, to be honest. Or maybe I'm just a bit slow. Either way, I like your language and country. J'aime la France! :D

    Here's our New Member Quick Start to get you started. See you around!


    P.s. Instead of "fault", you would say "make mistakes." You could, however, say "it's not your fault." And there are no double-consonants in writing and riding. :) However, your English is waaay better than my French!
