        Apr 17 2013: When I wrote my first shot novel is stimulated by the Internet Writer 's success .The fans they had . How pride they are .And I think this is the commen reason of todays Youth Writers appear .

        But as time go by , the powerful direct stimulation is about a movie or an kind of intense motion which not just satisfy shelved in inner .

        More like a desire to find a goal , a hint from our brain ,the positive character of our own tell our to achieve ourself to break the security we hold to build a new me .

        But most of the time the reality usually " kick our head " , telling me the lack of reason involved available time,
        the professional knowledge we should master , the situation of finance .

        In China the period over the university is the relatively light time comparing with the first off twelve years we undergoed.
