Hello there, My name is Simon and I am an 18-year-old guy from Montreal, Canada. I currently study languages in college, more precisely German and Italian. It's only been one semester but I love it so far. In addition to these two languages, I speak French, English and Spanish. I would love to learn a few more, later on. I am interested in translation and international relations. I am an avid fantasy reader and I have been trying to write my own novel for years now. Working on it is part of my resolutions for 2010. I can't decide whether I should write it in my mother tongue, French, or English. My vocabulary isn't as developed for the latter. On the other hand, French-Canadian fantasy writers usually have a hard time getting their work published, so I have to figure that out. I have to say I love this forum already. This is the first time I get to see a community where every single user writes properly, it's quite a shock. Hopefully, being surrounded by so many promising writers will get me motivated and carry me through the entire writing process of my very first novel. Last thing : it may sound like an odd request, but feel free to correct eventual spelling mistakes. See you in the forums !
