Hi everyone, I actually need some advice. English is not my native language. But I read in English since 4 years ago. That's the way I learned it. I began to read before I had any English at school. So I really learned "Oh, 'I' means '...'" My family didn't believe I could actually read in English. Especially my older brother who kept asking 'Do you know the meaning of that word?', while picking a difficult describing word. Off course I didn't understand it, hello, I was a twelve year old learning myself another language. But I kept reading in English! I've read many books since then (right now I'm reading the final book of the earth's children of J.M. Auel). I'm 16 now by the way. My dilemma: do I write my manuscript in English or in my native language Dutch? Yes, I know my Dutch is much better and I probably will struggle a lot when I'm at a loss for words in English. Not to mention the many mistakes I write (sorry for that :S). But it feels easier expressing myself in English, sounds better and all. I think regularly in English as well... What do you guys think? I want to write the story that's in my head. And as most writers I want to see it published someday. Thanks for helping me out!
