I'm kind of new to Lit&Latte, but I'd like to participate. One question I do have: I live in America, so should I use American English or British English to write my chapter? Would it matter very much?

Hi Corinne, and welcome to the forum! I've sent you a Direct Message with the next steps, but in the meantime...

Well, in past years we've asked everyone to write in British English. This has been one of the few constraints we've put on people's style (the other being restrictions on PoV). Truth is, probably half the participants (maybe more, I've not checked :oops: ) are from outside of Britain.
Would it matter very much? Probably not. Worst case scenario we'll just run your chapter through our dedicated machine which translates things to British English (that is to say, I'll read it and correct the spelling of anything that has a red squiggly line under it).

The main thing to make you aware of as an overseas participant is that the event starts at midnight on Saturday UK time. So, in the US, that means it'll actually kick off Friday afternoon (the exact time depending on your timezone).

Didn't you lose to the Canadians? I'm pretty sure we just let you win one after that.

Heck no! The Canadians are nice. We'd never fight with them. Their behavior in public is as un-vic-k-like as you can be while still be human and unlike Nomstrailians they don't piddle on the carpet. While they do still have a picture of grandma on their money, we unruly colonials are ok with with it as they have pretty money.

Now those Nomstrailians... that lot is nothing but trouble.

1812? I mentioned it in an interview in a newspaper and everything, so it must be true.

As a professional, you, are your one and only asset. Without integrity you are worthless, but with it, you are priceless.

To quote wikipedia
wikipedia wrote:The War of 1812 was a military conflict, lasting for two and a half years, fought by the United States of America against the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, its North American colonies, and its American Indian allies.

While you forced the Canadians to fight, it was with those brightly colored walking targets already once defeated that the war was fought :)

The poor Canadians were just caught in the middle.

For the purists among you, take a deep breath
