Borrowed 2 books by author Wu Danru, a Taiwanese female author who is different from Amy Cheung a Hongkong writer. Wu Danru likes to focus her writings on her experiences and encounters when she goes traveling, unlike Amy Cheung who mainly writes stories and views about romance from a woman's perspective.
This is one extract from her book (Meet A Life with An Elegant Tone) which I quite like.
Loneliness, is very suitable for a writer and author. Me, as a writer, is never afraid of loneliness and being alone, even in the furthest and coldest foreign country, I just need to open my writing pad, turn on my laptop, I will immediately return to my hometown of imagination. The streets and corners there are built up and formed using my vivid imagination, the speed well within my own control. The world which I build up and imagine is so rich that I have enough time and space to communicate and talk to myself anytime.
Writing each word is enjoyment. Drinking a cup of coffee is enjoyment. Reading a book is enjoyment. Even doing nothing is enjoyment. Life itself is enjoyment. Even the nothingness in life is enjoyment.
Any blogger friend here who reads Chinese as well? You need to read the original Chinese text to appreciate her "juicy" words. LOLOL. When reading a book, I love to savour each word, make notes and write things down when they touch a chord
