Sweden - flamingosareinfactpink

Country where you live: Sweden

How many years have you lived there: 18 (my whole life)

Familiarity with the languages spoken there (specify which language it is and make note if you feel comfortable translating things for people: I’m fluent in Swedish, and I’m also quite knowledgeable of the Swedish-Finnish dialect (they have a few different words and slang) I’m also fluent in English so translating is no problem for me, I would be happy to do it. 

Areas you would consider yourself knowledgable in (bold them): General customs, Religion (mainly Christianity, but also Islam), Politics, Food, Housing conditions, Schooling, Common foreigner-isms (Also history, folklore, work and the queer community)

Any additional information you think you could contribute? I live up in the north in Skellefteå, so I don’t know much about the soth parts of Sweden (except Gothenburg and Linköping, I have people to ask about them)

 

Ok so I am having computer troubles, hopefully that will be fixed tomorrow, but we shall see.  I have a somewhat iffy older computer to work on, but I will likely be kinda running quiet for at least tomorrow. 

If you send an ask I am not ignoring you I am Tumblr free for a bit and will get to you asks and submissions when I return..

Hi, followers and contributors! Thank you all so much for what you’ve either invested or enjoyed in this blog. I’ve loved being the mod, but something’s cropped up so it seems I won’t be able to run this blog for much longer.

Would anyone be willing to take it over for me? It honestly doesn’t need to require any more work than you can commit - if nothing else then you can just keep it as a sideblog but not actually be active, just so people can see who the contributors are and contact them independently if need be. I would love to see the resources on this blog maintained, even if I can’t do it anymore! Please message me if you’d be willing.

Hello one and all.  For those of you who may have missed this statement prevously, the awesome who was the mod of this blog is handing over the reigns.  I’m Lizzy the mod of On the Written Word and will be taking over the reigns.

Now the main reason I offered to become the mod is that I think this blog is a brilliant idea and needs to be continued as a resource for writers.   So far things have been quiet, but this blog is open and active so if you have questions or contributions please send them in.  This blog is possible because of all of your contributions so I look forward to hearing from you all.

Anonymous asked: Anyone from South Korea? I need info on high schools and how people hang out, scandals that might occur (if any), cliques (if any), classroom system, how they're disciplined, etc.

Just answered a question about this and there’s no feedback yet! Again, if anyone from South Korea sees this post and would be willing to contribute knowledge of the high school system to this Anon to help with their story, please message here!

Anonymous asked: Does anyone have any culture reference stuff for South Korea?

Sorry, nothing currently! If anyone from South Korea sees this post, would you be willing to sign up as a contributor (sign-up available in the submit section of this blog) to help out the Anon with cultural references for their writing?

Brazil - adhara1x1

Country where you live: Brazil

How many years you have lived there: 17(all my life)

Familiarity with the language spoken there (specify which language it is and make note if you feel comfortable translating things for people): Portuguese is my mother language and yes, I’m comfortable with translations.

Areas you would consider yourself knowledgable in (bold them): General customs, Religion, Politics, Food, Housing conditions, Schooling, Common foreigner-isms.

Any additional information you think you could contribute? I know a lot about brazilian history so I can help with that. I can also talk about music and the school system(which is confusing for most of the foreigners).

Message to contributors

Hey! If anyone messages you with questions about writing in the location you’ve volunteered to assist about, would you be willing to tag that with “worldwidewriting”? Thanks!

Anonymous asked: Hi there!! I was wondering if any of your followers are from Chicago// the city area or have extensive knowledge on it, because I am curious and I want to know where do most of them// teenagers/young adults// go to most of the time to hang out. Thank you!!

None of the American contributors have said they’re from Chicago, so I can’t direct you to a specific person. A few people are from unspecified locations within the United States, so you could go through the “United States” tag and look for contributors to message and ask them if they could help! The one specific person I could mention is roseymoon, who is from Illinois, but not Chicago. They could potentially give you some help about other aspects of Illinois, but not the city itself.

I wish I could help you more, Anon! I’m tagging this so that hopefully some people from Chicago will see it. If anyone sees this and could answer some of Anon’s questions to help them with their story, please message this blog!

Anonymous asked: Hello! I'd like to ask any Russian contributors how Russian names work, since melancholiasecho mentioned that specifically. Also, if possible, could anyone help me out with details on what it's like to live in Norilsk, near the top of Krasnoyarsk Krai? It's so different from where I live (temperate Auckland, New Zealand) that I'm anxious about getting it right. Thanks so much for all your help!

melancholiasecho, would you be able to come over and maybe submit a post about Russian naming systems to help Anon? Or, if it’s easier for you, should Anon go over to your askbox and ask you their specific questions there?

Melancholiasecho is currently the only contributor from Russia, so if they can’t help you with all your questions then I suggest you could check out the following sources (I can’t testify too much to how useful they’ll be, since I just did some brief Googling and looking through tags here):

That last link includes links to other things about Russia that the blogger has written, so that could also be helpful, particularly if you’re looking for information for such a specific location! The links are tags to their blog and are in the second paragraph, so hopefully they’ll be easy for you to find and access.

I’m also tagging this post so that people from Norilsk or somewhere else in Krasnoyarsk Krai, so for anyone who sees this post and can answer Anon’s questions, please message this blog!

You’re welcome, Anon, and good luck!
