Hi Bananap. That is good news for you, I guess. Have you thought about writing a book or a novel yourself?

Regarding your text, here is a rewritten version:

Novelist Hwang Sok-yong has been long-listed for the 2019 Man Booker International Prize. The list was announced on Wednesday and 12 out of 108 novels were chosen compiled out of 108. The book that exalted Hwang to the list, will be released in English in July.

Actually, I have thought about writing a novel myself. I do not know how long it will take until I become proficient enough to write a novel in English, but I am looking forward to that. Or, maybe, I already am capable of it but not being aware of it. In any case, one of my goals in the near future is to write something long in English without any significant errors.

Nice work Bananap!  I agree with Aliakbar that "chosen" is a better word than "compiled".  You compile a list by gathering all the works together and then choose the best.  

Now, I note that the original article refers to the "prestigeous book prize".  I can't help thinking it should be the prestigeous Booker Prize".  I may be wrong though!!

If you want to write a novel, go for it - just start!  It's one of those things in life that we think about but never begin.  So just do it!! You write beautifully!

Hi! This reads so well, well done!

To make your writing even more interesting, you can make your text more descriptive with adjectives and pronouns. For example; Famous South Korean novelist and book awardee Hwang Sok-yong has been long-listed for the 2019 Man Booker International Prize.

- The list was announced on Wednesday and 12 out of 108 novels were compiled.

Thanks,

Becky :)
