Am a first time writer. Just began last year and have a finished work, an adventure in French, one of my second languages. Thing is that I felt all clumsy and not up to scratch with the work in French...too Australian sounding or something. This led to several concerted efforts at polishing it up with native speakers, friends and volunteers, but found that too frustrating in terms of style changes, so have began translating the work into English myself, the mother tongue.
My interest in terms of WritersNet is to get any tips on what are the best steps to follow in terms of approaching a publisher or an agent to have the novel read and appraised. I'm hoping to find other writers who are happy to share their experiences, agents who might offer me some advice and anyone generally interested in writing to find out more about this world.
Interests: Ideas, discussions, concepts, experiences and emotions. Integrating, making connections between everything, simple abstract thinking, sometimes complex. Playing with everything.
Published writer: No
