Which country is better to write a novel in, USA or UK? by Sheepwash on 2004-06-19 13:00:36
This is the problem plaguing me this summer as I write my dissertation. And before you try to tempt me into the natural splendors of the African continent, or the lingual interest of Portugal, or the lonely ice covered beauty of Siberia, know that USA and UK are about my only choices due to money constraints and the location of my dog being on one and my boyfriend being on the other of those land masses. Your input into which country would be better suited to actually sit and write the novel (not which country to base the novel) would be welcomed.

|I say you make it a cross-continental story and write part of it with your dog and the other half with the boyfriend. And, if this is your first, write a bunch of novellas, or short stories based on the experience "of those land masses"? Sorry. I'm not really a book editor...|

|I like this problem because it's difficult to make a terrible mistake no matter what you decide. If it's about the money go USA. The exchange rate heavily favors the Euro or pound/quid/sterling (you know, the current fashionable term for Brit currency) whatever your converting for US $.Though best of all we speak English and unless the dialect is trailer park redneck you should receive a high degree of understanding for whatever words you seek to indicate meaning.|
