My native tongue is French, and I've always written in that language. Having said that, I moved to America a few years ago and, while my English isn't flawless, it's adequate. Recently, I've been attempting to switch to English because I'd like to be published at some point and my life is now, and I believe that writing in English will allow me to reach a larger audience (obviously more people speak English than French in the world and English generally offers more opportunities). However, because French is my first language, I prefer to write in that language.
