I was actually wondering if it matters if you write in British or American English if you want to get published? Most book I read (as in modern books) seem to be American. While my co-writer would prefer to write in American English, we have agreed to write in British since that is the type of English I am studying. But since English isn't my first language I do tend to use typical American words without knowing that they are actually American... can that be a problem? At least on of the characters will use American English... since he's an American though that will only be known by some typical words I suppose. While I know that there isn't a gigantic difference between British and America... it will still be quite a job to delete the 'u' in words like honour or change the 'ize' in 'ise' in some words... there for my questions.
