I'm a technical editor/writer for a large company; internal only. But agree: anything but teaching. Lol.

Will you stay?

I do a lot of writing for work to, policy & strategy stuff, trying to convince people in the UK that they should be paying attention to China or they're going to be screwed in the long term.

I'm not ruling anything in or out in terms of staying - have a boyfriend here now which makes it slightly more of a complex question, although he wants to leave at some stage too so I guess we'll be playing it by ear. Hopefully my organisation keeps me in post for a little longer at least...

Lol, convince people in the UK to pay attention? Hmm.... I remember that type of work. Getting them to move on anything that wasn't related to "being better than thou 'cos we have a monarchy" was difficult. Oh, not dissing them; I'm amused by the memory.

Yay, boyfriend! Certainly makes being in China a lot more fun! Heh, I expect your organisation will want you to stay for around 2 years, at which point, you'd likely be the one to make the decision to stay or not.

Hello! I consider myself fluent in Chinese, though some would disagree. Anyway, want to say hi to friends here.

Snitchcat, your post is a while ago, but congratulations anyway on finishing a story! 太棒了! 能写完一个故事很不容易! 我要向你学习。

Hi hi!

欢迎!

This sub-form moves slowly, but it moves. (^_^)

(I really should proofread my Chinese before posting!) Glad you understood the Cantonese, and thanks for the compliment. 对! 要写完一个故事很有挑战! 加油,你做得到咖!

你e家写更什么? 故事、文章,还有其他呢?

我是北京来的, 不会广东话, 如果看错了请原谅!Please forgive me if I didn’t get the Cantonese completely. 但是我认识几个香港朋友。 你是在香港吗?

我断断续续写了些小说,但都没有写完,写了几章就放弃了,还是水平不够。 现在准备好好练习,先写些短篇的,主要为了提高写作水平,慢慢练, 慢慢进步,一点一点提高。 先不考虑发表。

你在写什么? 如果你需要人给你的小说提点意见和想法, 我可以给你看, 如果你愿意。

Hi hi!

You got it completely! 反而,我的书面中文写得唔好。你对了:我在香港, 不过不在香港长大的,而在英国。你的香港朋友也在香港吗, 还是在美国呢?

Hehehe, writing novels takes time and dedication but is certainly good fun. However, understand about writing shorter pieces for the practice (I do this, too, occasionally).

Agreed that publication can wait; it's nice to have, but the process needs to be fun first. :) 我也有慢慢学及练中文。

写什么啊? Hmm... 比较多写科幻小说或短篇,不过也会写non-fiction,如文章、说明书,等 ……。

Hehehe, thanks for the offer; I'd certainly be up for taking you up on that when I've finished writing my current WIP. Would also love to read/crit some of your work, too. What genre(s) do you prefer to write?

我在年轻时在意大利上高中,就认识一个香港朋友。后来在美国上大学也认识到很好的香港朋友。 我在美国已经住了三十年了。 我的几位大陆朋友都曾在香港做工,教书。 我现在上班的公司也有同事是香港来的。At the risk of sounding prejudice, of all the Chinese people I know (me included), people from 香港 are the most humorous. (If they consider themselves Chinese?)

你的书面中文很好吗!你如果在英国长大,能很准确的读我写的大陆简体中文,是很棒的。

我也喜欢科幻,大部分时间在写科幻。 现在练习也写些现实的短文。还没有写好的,等写好一两篇再向您请教,或登上SYW.

Hmm? 香港人很有
幽默感吗?为什么我不知道啊,没人介绍香港人有这个优点! :tongue:

其实,香港人觉得自己是香港或华人并不是中国人,我们是这么奇怪。

真的吗?非常感谢你的赞扬!对,我真的在英国大,从小时候只有听广东话不过也有学了一点点的书面中文,但来港后真正学书面中文,因为为了看得懂漫画!Lol! 可是,有些漫画只有简体翻译,所以也学看简体字!Hahahah!

那,你也会看很多在中文
科幻小说或短文吗?如果你不介意的话,可否介绍一两本书给我啊?谢谢!

好的!很期待看到你的作品!(^_^)

你的生活很丰富吗! 我是做电脑编程序,整天坐在椅子上。

我告诉你这是真的, 只是他们自己不知道而已:)

其实,香港人觉得自己是香港或华人并不是中国人,我们是这么奇怪。
这没有什么奇怪的,如果是我,我会一样想。你在英国长大,觉得自己是英国人吗?还是香港人?

我很少看大陆的中文作品了,只看在美国的一两个中文网站的文章。

好的!很期待看到你的作品!(^_^)
同样等你的作品!

太好了,这里又有北京来的。 我想可能不止我们两个, 也许还有,但他们还没有发现这条讨论线。你如果需要有人beta读,我可以尽力,一般两三千字我很快就看完了,只是水平有限,作用未必很大!

Hi, Irene, welcome to AW!

If you want to find beta readers, there's a Beta Readers sub-forum.
If you want to post something short (a short story or portion of your novel, for example) for critique, then it'll be one of the sub-forums in the "Share Your Work" forum.

Hope that helps. :)
