When it comes to notebook, what are you thinking about, Powerbook, IBM, Acer or Dell? Well, I’m infatuated with paper-made notebooks. Many Chinese artists believe that, to choose better papers and pens are very important. Some people choose Moleskine, but paperblanks would be the most classic notebook I thought.
I bought it about five years ago. You know, when there are so many people don’t believe in me, and they don’t even think I would be a successful and professional writer, exactly to say, a litterateur. William Shakespeare would give me comfort. If pop music had icons, there are so many litterateur and painter icons in the whole world likewise.
‘For most of history, anonymous was a woman’ said Virginia Woolf. Since I’ve given up opportunities to fight for Prizes and trying to please my professors, I saw there are a brand new continent waiting for me, the world wide web. I do love Virginia Woolf, just like Rilke said: ‘Confess to yourself in the deepest hour of the night whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. Dig deep into your heart, where the answer spreads its roots in your being, and ask yourself solemnly, Must I write?’ Yes, I must write. I confessed that, without my brain and my hand, I’m nothing in the world.
