It’s not healthy to stay home for too long because I need to breathe flesh air. I watched movies all day, and didn’t go grocery shopping. I didn’t share the snowing I videoed either because I figured 90 seconds of snowing is too long to watch.

I was rather discouraged by watching “Finding Forrester”. I thought I could never write well after seeing someone else being so talented. B’s writer friend’s advice to me was: It’s pretty tough to be a writer. Yeah, I bet. The only encouragement I got was from an ESL teacher who told me that I could make it because my perspective was kind of different. She wished me luck.

Steven King says, if a person is not serious about her writing, she should do something else. Writing is self-discipline.

I like to write simply because I need to know what I think. My life is passing before my eyes. I want to keep a record of it before it’s gone. I write to know more about myself.

Another thing he said is, when writing is joy, one can keep doing it. Maybe writing is another way to say this life has meaning for me and I feel fortunate to be here.
