Allow me to introduce you to Fanni Sütő, an author I’ve had the pleasure of working with recently. Fanni faces the unique challenge of writing across two languages, Hungarian and English. I am in total awe of her skills in her second language (and must admit, I can’t read in her first language). She has a short story collection, which she will be sharing her collection of bi-lingual short stories on her blog this month.
I am a writer. Sometimes I feel like I have to defend this basic premise of who I am. I am a writer because I write – most days in fact. I don’t always write a lot, but I get the words out of my brain and into the computer. Therefore I am a writer.
The problem is when I tell people that I’m a writer, they want to know what I have published.
