Hi all! Just my introductory post... Woman, late 30s, work in IT, Swedish but living in the UK. I have always wanted to write, and have the plots for two stories in my head. It feels like they really need to be put on paper now. The question is: Do I have the perseverance and can I find the time? Getting published isn't something I'm worried about right now. The main priority is to get at least one of the stories written up. Although my English is fully fluent, probably better than that of many native speakers, it's not actually my native language. The temptation to write in English instead of Swedish is very strong, since it increases the potential readership exponentially. On the other hand, anything I wrote in Swedish would have that extra something I may never be able to accomplish in English. Not sure how to handle this dilemma. Second challenge is quickly getting up to speed on Scrivener. I started a thread on it.
