Who knew that not knowing how American school system works could be such an effective thing keeping you from writing or further more putting your fanfictions on the internet. As if not being a fluent speaker (a.k.a having already pressure with language as you need to translate everything) and not knowing all the rules when it comes to grammar and overall writing system wouldn't be enough.
Kheh, me and my little dilemmas. But I'm not really joking, this little fact is one major thing why I'm not too keen on putting my own fanfictions (mainly Phineas and Ferb) here... I know it's a type thing that you shouldn't worry too much about and just write and learn on the job, but the pressure is still there. Plus that English actually isn't my first or even a second language I feel really sensitive about writing any real long stories with this language. Not only because I really worry over all the types that I
make, but also the vocabulary. It's a whole new world writing an actual multipage story than just rambling on and on about something in a description or a journal.
But I guess that even more that I'm worried about the text itself is the consept. I mean, personally I'm willing to forgive some minor typos or misspellings in a story if the plot itself is good and on it's own league even makes sense. Which brings me to my problem with school system. It's a tad different between USA and Finland. And along with the school, sometimes theres some minor problems with some cultural things (such how does a catholic wedding work down to the core. I'm lutherian myself, so althought both christian, there's some differences) etc. So in that I guess that my biggest fear is that I'll write something really unfitting for character who live in America.
I know it's a tad silly, since it's most likely far more easy to screw up the plot or write everything out of character.
Yeah, this little ramble didn't really have much meaning I suppose? Mostly just me worrying about things.
I should briefly explain where this problem started: So I've been working on this Phineas and Ferb themed fanfic and I kinda stumbled on their educational issues and simple issues with how to prepare a wedding...
But thankfully I have a internet on my side, so I think I'll manage, for now.^^'
Wow, what do you know, I actually wrote a full-lenght journal.
And all this because I wasn't sure if you you'll have to go to college before going to university or not in America.
