Why and how did you become a writer?
For me it has become second nature to tell others that I have'always been a writer' - something I have not yet realized is a falsehood. Nobody is borne as a bright and talented mathematicist, linguistic expert or envious writer, but with the prospect of becoming one.
Maybe I have fallen into a philosophic inflammatory speech here, but we were all borne in different surroundings, with different parts of our brains that are more illuminated than others; with different talent and different weakness. I have always thought that the aim of our existence is to try to become the one we could become, with the limits of what we are created with (e.g.: it is out of someone's hands whether he is created with two nourishing and impassioned parent or two ineffective guardian - or whether he is meticulously logically or intensively artistic), and what we are experiencing throughout our lifes.
So I wasn't always a writer. But, I was certainly birthed with the quality, the trend to think deep about what an fall flower looks like in the sun or the color of a pretty boy's eye; the solid kinematic array of artistic energies known as my mind - that would later blossom into a need to work.
In fact, English was my second tongue - for the first three years I only talked Mandarin. When I was only three years old, I started to learn English when I spent the first days of my nursery at my own pure girls' college, which was to mark my next fourteen years. There are very few things I can recall from my nursery days - probably because I couldn't hear what someone said to me until I went to nursery for a few month.
But perhaps my most obvious remembrance is besides the instruction of a nursery school nurse to keep my mouth shut", Nadine. Nadine, the friendly and pretty Aussie schoolteacher who learned a few sentences in Mandarin and was whispering in my ears every single Chinese way every single mornings. The only sentences that would make me want to get away from my mother's poor for the school.
Of course I was a very timid kid and I didn't have the guts to say a single English term, let alone writing it. I was always the only one who would look into the cameras without paying attention to anyone else who was immersed in Maisy Mouse's work.
In the knowledge that I was from China, my nursery school asked me to draw a sign in grey on a placard for a New Year' s picture in China. They didn't know I had no idea what they were asking me to do, so I drew a brush in my hands and a cam above me to record the magical instant, a curlicue that didn't even give the appearance of a piece of China writing.
But even when I tried to make a phrase in English, I had an voracious fantasy. One of my culpable amusements is a wealthy and elaborate reverie - and when you think about it, typing is nothing more than a dream on one page. My argument would be that it is not possible to teach but only to promote and promote it.
Another half is the amount of correspondence needed to master the foreign languages and then fell in love with them - in that order, because you often like to do the things you're good at. To be able to type is a muscular system. I' ve just begun to exercise this muscles again after having written so many analytic papers in my last years of high schools that my penchant for typing is atrophied.
I had an excellent command of English in my elementary education, and my intellect was most formable in elementary education, and I really did develop an aptitude for writing well. The uninterrupted study card sessions that my preparation instructor did every single working days was the 20 words that my 4th grade students learned.
Then, every time I write a weekly written narrative for the 5th grade year of an Englishten classes that I join. In all honesty, this brief period of a few years was when I became a writer. During my last years of elementary education, I recall the day I had my dreams of becoming an writer.
So how else did I become a writer? Authors compose and authors compose. Denying that there is a correlation between the quantity and width of what you are reading and the lightness and inspirations with which you type is ridiculous. This was my trip - the how and why of my history of letters - to this day.
Now I can say with the greatest assurance that I am a writer. I' m a writer because nothing seems more important or right to me than a writer. It is because of the undescribable sense of emotion that I am creating the right tune to describe the form of significance and the outline of a thought that one never wanted to put into words.
Designing the best and most mighty sentence I could after spending long and long periods of time typing and transcribing. Best is when I meet an installment of'flow' in the middle of it. I' m obsessed and intoxicated - overwhelmed by the crude revelations of how to make a ferocious and spiny plant from a single semen; a minute buds sprouting from my subconscious, tinted by a remembrance or a wish or a ghost.
