Hello friends, I'm a German writer with a couple of published short-stories here and there, but I find the idea of writing for a bigger audience, language-wise that is, very exciting. Not in a financial sense, but because writing is a form of communication, of making, or at least trying to make myself understood in ways that everyday life and everyday language don't offer, and the depth of communication, I feel, increases with the number of people being given the chance to interact with what one sends out. Now English is obviously not my mother-tongue. That might end up being a big hurdle to jump for the kinds of stories I enjoy telling and the themes I want to touch upon. Which ... Is why I'm here! On one hand I want to improve my English in general, on the other I want to learn, and this I take to be the bigger challenge by far, to express myself in creative and original ways within the English language. Penguin Classics, here I come I look forward to interacting with you lot! Hugs, kisses and a cheeky slap on the tush.
