Hey! I'm 16 years old and I'm in high school. I really love to write stuff, I would like to do that as an occupation but my mother tells me that I couldn't. And I can't really blame her, we live in Honduras, which is a very small country in Central America, and here the oportunities aren't much - Or you study medicine or laws, or your career is worthless - there is not any arts school here, there is suppoused to be one but they only teach painting, so it is really difficult to be a writer here. And, even if you get published, not much people read books here, only old people, and so "it would be worthless", in my mom's words.
But, I really want to do this and so I'm trying to start here, by publishing some stuff and see how I can improve my writing to, maybe someday, get the oportunity to study overseas.
If there are any mistakes in my English, which is highly probable, I apologize. My first language is Spanish and I have never really studied English so all I know has been learnt in on-line chatts.
Have a nice day!
