Huang : When I was a child, I didn’t know my teacher from modern dance. I first met you as a novelist. At that time, my family had two anthologies of short stories, “A Country of Gold” and “Hometown of Heroes and Warriors,” which happened to be published by The Times. , which contains the best works of the time, such as Chen Yingzhen's "Night Truck", the seventh-class student "I Love Black Eyeballs", and the teacher's "Cicada".
Lin : This collection of short stories job email list was edited by Liu Shaoming at the time, translated into English, and published by Columbia University as a textbook for Chinese students in the United States. Huang : When I grew up, I was surprised to see that my teacher later devoted himself to dancing and did not write novels at all. Because I think one is written with symbols, while dance is expressed with body, the logic of thinking seems to be different, and I have always remembered the moving of reading "Cicada" repeatedly . The teacher came back in a circle, but the muscles of writing did not degenerate.
It is difficult to keep the text sharp, just as a dancer loses the fluidity of the body rhythm without training for a long time. Lin : There is a saying in the dance world: "If you don't practice for one day, you know it, if you don't practice for a week, the teacher knows, and if you don't practice for ten days, the audience knows." Like writing, write every day. day by day. I feel that I have lost the ability to write, and I always feel that writing is crooked and difficult. For example, "Wen Qing Xiaolin's Growth Story" has been written on and off for a month. Emotions are in my heart, but events and dates can't be wrongly written, they need to be confirmed back and forth, Google for a long time, and when I look back, I forgot what I was writing. To confirm everything, this is the training of the Department of Journalism of Zhengda University.
