English or French?
OK, so I have a novel coming out soon and the thing is I can’t wait to finish editing the follow-up.
In recent interviews I’ve been asked about the challenges of writing in another language. Writing in French came as a shock, something I had not anticipated at all. It happened after a trauma and unblocked the pain in me, the pain I could not express in English. I had not even planned to write. The pen was placed in my hand and through tears the words just poured out.
I wonder if other writers who write in a different language feel the same and express themselves differently. I do know I love the challenge and the ability to do so, opening new doors in my mind…
