It seems that not only by rereading our old writing can see how much we grow as writers, but by rereading old books too. Or, in my case, reading LOTR for the first time in English. About 5 years ago I tried and couldn't: the language was too complex for me. And now I swim in it and marvel at how much I've grown.
Just curious. Any other bilingual writers here whose native language is not English and who write in English?
