Write in your native language be that English, Scots, American, etc.

We can get caught up in writing the Queen’s English or The President’s Argot, but why not be comfortable in the language of your locale.

I was dragged up speaking Scots.  Some say it’s a dialect of English but it has now, rightly in my opinion, been recognised as a language in its own right.

The words and phrases of my youth have a resonance different from the formality of this standard English. Fash, egjit, numptie, scunner, and a whole language more.

Go back to the patois or creole of your  childhood.

Let emotions rip.
