Language Shouldn’t Be A Barrier To Writing

A language is a tool for communication and not a barrier to writing.

– Bernard Kelvin Clive

It’s true most people prefer to write in Eglish language because it’s the universal language and large proportion of the populace get to read their work. However, writing is not limited to the English language alone. Any writer can write in any language of choice as long as he’s good at the language and can write good stuff.

An aspiring author doesn’t have to wait until he has mastered the English language art and become a guru before writing his first book. He can write in any language he is more comfortable with.

If a writer’s writing is good, the good news will definitely go round, and the world will get to know about it through the speakers of that language and probably demand for translation.

So, do not be discouraged from writing, if English is not your native language and you have not been opportune to master it as to write with it.

Writers write to communicate, and any language has someone who understands it.

It doesn’t matter which language you write in, as long as your writing is good.

– Chinua Achebe

The quote above says it all- the language you write in doesn’t matter. What you need to focus on is good writing.
