Hey guys! I've been away from theses forums for a long time because of the time constraints of being a new parent, but now I'm back in the saddle and decided it was about time I came back to this place. I've been entertaining the idea of actually studying creative writing. There seems to be a lot more pros than cons if I wanna be serious about this. There's actually a couple of things that scare me though : first of all, I'm going to be a francophone going to an English university. I think I'm fairly competent in English and the novels I read are exclusively in writen in that language, however, when I was about to fill that form I got struck with the impostor syndrome. What if my accent stands out? What if I make obvious mistakes? English is a beautiful language and I've dedicated a good portion of my life trying to master it as good as I can, but whenever I power on my computer to write, I find myself defaulting to French in fear of being ridiculed. It's easy to assume there are other writers on here with a situation similar to mine, so I was wondering if a couple of you could pitch in on the matter.
