    Oh I thought for sure you had something somewhere given your efforts in writing..
    Well I'm not saying DA is ideal given how visual art centered it is, just an example that literature is recognized as art there

    SOunds good.

    Well, it was actually a school project, where we were in groups of four, leaving feedback on each others work. They gave me positive feedback, tehn my teacher did, then my parents did (they don't always do) and lastly my elder borther who is a good writer.

    So that was what motivated me mainly, and then I kept writing about as much as I already wrote.

    Very bra Svenska.
    I've been to FInland once! Kellekoski and Helsinki (Helsingfors in Swedish)
    I actually visited a school then, but I wasn't there long enough to get a good insight in your system.

    I heard that you guys have the really good PISA results, right?
    We seem to have very different school systems. :D

    Well learning Swedish is obligatory here, guess I did learn couple of phrases from the classes.
    I suggest Estonia over us: cheap beverages. If you're ever to Tallinn I might be there, come say hi, I'm the drunk Finn.
    Ha, I bet they had to come up with something positive when introducing the school you visited, better shine with PISA since they happen to be high for some reason.

    Hey, forget DA I found quotev.com which is specifically meant for literature. People submit their stories chapter by chapter, whereas in DA is expected finished work.

    My goal is to write something as well, just need to read a lot of English literature first. (For example using highly descriptive expressions: "she had dressed in a dress" > "she was gowned in luminous silk".)

    Maybe a little bit of a bad example.. It's mostly about verb being the heart of a sentence instead of crowding it with adjectives. That is, "she had dressed in a beautiful, white dress" still sounds poor to me.

    That's nice! I made account to follow you. I recommend giving couple of stories a read, you might find interesting ones.
