For me, writing literature is the most important part of my life。Besides writing, I don't know what else gives me such pleasure。

I have been writing for thirty years, minus the eight years I have been doing business in the sea, about twenty-two years, fifteen of which have been professional creation。It is said that professional creation is actually semi-professional, I only have half of the time to create, the other half I have to serve, organize, contact。In addition to the Writers' Association, the Faculty of Arts, the four periodicals and one newspaper, as well as several units of the Federation of Arts, I have to manage them。Come to think of it, those years as a professional writer were my happiest。Now, I understand that my predecessor, Chairman Ho Szekwong, why60I was just a few years old when I decided to quit。It turns out that in the view of Chairman Shkwong, creation is much more enjoyable than management。Over the past ten years, the works such as "This Life" created by He Shiguang really make people look up。I think in today's literary world, no matter how beautiful some people are, a hundred years later, most people and their works will disappear, and works like This life should be immortal。

The development of vernacular writing to today, the technical problem is no longer a problem, just get a writer to say, will not be bad to where。It's a common problem, which means it's a big problem, which is"There are plateaus, but no peaks"。In other words, a time without masters。So, the Nobel Prize in literature is the peak we admire!Of course not。Take, for example, the phenomenon of French literature。Many French writers have won the Nobel Prize in literature, but it is more difficult for these Nobel Prize winners to enter the French Academy of literature than the Nobel Prize。As a big literary country, France has its own literary spirit and standards。This is French confidence, French height。From the historical point of view, China is undoubtedly a big country in literature, and it is the strongest country。To be confident, if the Nobel Prize does not give Chinese literature, it is not our loss, but the great regret of the Nobel Prize。Not to mention the great literary peaks of our thousands of years ago, we can easily count more than 20 outstanding writers like Mo Yan today。France is confident, China should be more confident。

Guizhou's literary creation is famous for short stories。From Jian Xian Ai to He Shiguang, He has represented the highest level of Guizhou literature for decades。He Shiguang in the eighties of the last century, four times Chan won the Chinese excellent short story award, interpreting the king style in this text writing。Up to now, Guizhou literature is still based on He Shiguang, Ye Xin and Li Kuanding to tell the history of Guizhou literature。Ye Sing's TV series and Lee Kwan-ding's movies were household names at that time。He Yeli undoubtedly represents the level of Guizhou literature at that time。

For me, poetry, prose, short and medium novels, TV dramas, movies all involve, about500More than 10,000 words, also obtained15Subnational award。On second thought, I find the short story most satisfying, and it is precisely this text that is neglected。When people talk about the TV shows they know so well, I try to avoid them。I am very reluctant to be introduced as a screenwriter, or even what gold medal screenwriter title。I'm a writer, better than a short story writer, and I value that more。Although the former has substantial economic benefits, while the latter has almost no interests to talk about, most of them can only talk about spiritual pursuit。

For me, this remaining pursuit must be adhered to。

 

                   

 

Why do I love short stories?I have my own thoughts。

I started writing short stories before I fully understood what a novel was, just as a man rushes to get married without understanding women。That's a polite way of saying it, actually"Bullying" and "rape" are the most accurate metaphors。At that time, I thought that the novel was very simple, and the short story was not a word, and it would be published casually, or it would be famous and change the fate accidentally, and it was too much to deceive the novel。

A succession of rejections showed me that novels are less easy to bully。The taste of failure is still fresh in my mind, of course, but just as history always wants to write on the good side, I also like to recall the good impulse of writing at the beginning。In the dead of night, the body always holds a strong, or a breath, it needs to spit out and release into the paper。It doesn't take long to breathe, just one night;It doesn't take a lot of ink, just20300Grid of manuscript paper。This is my idea of a short story。

In my experience, short stories can be a form of pleasure。First of all, it's short, It doesn't take much physical effort,It's done before the excitement wears off,So it often gives the impression of full, exciting and perfect;Secondly it is free,Any second thought,If you want,Can be turned into short stories,Especially once the modernist novel was accepted by the readers,Short stories are unreasonably free;Thirdly, it can give people a sense of achievement,Regardless of length,It is, after all, a novel,In addition, there are several examples in the world that have become masters through short stories。So I am such a lazy person, finally found an excuse, before not writing a big book, there is no reason to have a good feeling。If I feel pain and fatigue when I write long or medium stories, I feel light and happy most of the time when I write short stories。The only unhappy thing is that when getting paid, short stories often can't get more money because of the limited number of words。

But who wants to pay for that nonsense and waste time?In today's less and less reading crowd and reading time, the short story is especially suitable, it is like the concentrated liquid of the novel, can maximize the elimination of nonsense, can give the reader the full enjoyment of the novel in the shortest time。

So I thought that a short story should not only be written in one sitting, it should also be able to be read in one sitting。

 

                

 

 Friends who are familiar with my work have said that I have devoted too much affection to this land of Guizhou。

Born and raised in Sri Lanka, he certainly loves and cares about the history and culture of this land。Guizhou history and culture when the first push ancient Yelang civilization, most people know Han Yelang, because there is a sentenceAn idiom of "being arrogant at night"。This idiom makes many Guizhou people have a psychological burden, in fact, in my opinion, this is too vulgar too self-confident performance。First of all, Yelang arrogance itself is a historical fallacy, the queen of the Han Dynasty came to the king of Yelang, the king of Yelang asked the Han Dynasty, you are big or I am big, this was nothing wrong, at that time there was no mobile phone and no network Baidu, Han and Yelang were thousands of miles apart, with the information spread at that time, you can imagine。It's normal not to know each other, the purpose of the Han ambassador here, is not to find out how big Yelang?Yelang king asked you big or I big, I think this is a modest and prudent attitude, do not know, I ask, why not?Is that funny??To say that there is a complex of arrogance must be Han, Chang 'an at that time is the center of Asian civilization, of course, is large, naturally has its big mind and arrogance。But an emperor like Emperor Wudi would never be arrogant, not to mention the powerful Huns that kept him awake at night。It must be the literati and literati of Chang 'an who have an ego complex. In their opinion, except Chang 'an people are all country people (which is somewhat similar to some people in Beijing and Shanghai today). In their opinion, how can you ask you big questions。This is a humble and cautious words, in their eyes has become ignorant of the lofty, arrogant。It's easy to see who's arrogant。Fallacies are fallacies!It's no big deal. Just laugh it off。Just haveSome Guizhou people to this idiom engraved on the heart, of course, there are many Guizhou people do not agree, I am like this。From 2004 to 2007, I and Guizhou People's Publishing House planned a series of national famous books, the series is called Yelang Big Books, and in a few years, a total of more than 30 famous writers in the country have launched novels and essays, and no one is afraid of being "Yelang big.。Arrogance, self-confidence is actually in the slightest between, called complacency。Arrogance is the need for confidence, as long as you are not complacent, arrogant once is no harm?Besides, Yelang's territory at that time included today's western part of Hunan, eastern part of Yunnan, and southwestern part of Sichuan, wasn't it big?

I am here to emphasize the ancient Yelang, the territory of the ancient Yelang is larger and more extensive, according to archaeological findings, its civilization has a history of six to seven thousand years, which is one of the ten archaeological discoveries in the archaeological field that year, that is, the ancient remains of Kola County in Bijie, Guizhou。According to the ancient Yi books in Bijie, when the Western Zhou Dynasty was threatened by Qin, the 17th king of Ancient Yelang sent 100,000 troops to protect the dignity of the Son of Heaven。This theme, I am ready to do a TV series, the local is building ancient Yelang city, boost the development of local tourism。Yelang in the late Western Han Dynasty, under the central Dynasty, set up Yelang County。In the Tang Dynasty, Yelang was still famous. Yelang appeared in the poems of many literati。According to the records of Shiqian Prefecture in Guizhou, Li Bai offended the dignitaries and sent Yelang。There is still a legend of Li Bai in Shiqian County。

There is also an idiom called"The last trick is exhausted", but also wrong to Guizhou, so that many Guizhou people choke in the throat, uncomfortable。In fact, such fallacies are also laughed off, do not care about。Junior high school students know, Liu Zongyuan said, Qian no donkey, there are busymen, the boat to enter。Moreover, Qian did not refer to Guizhou at that time。At that time, it was called Qianzhong Road, which included present-day Hubei, Hunan, Sichuan, Guizhou and Guangxi。This area was called Qianzhong County in Qin Dynasty, Wuling County in Han Dynasty and Qianzhong Road in Tang Dynasty。By the Ming Dynasty this area was divided into five provinces。Namely, Shizhouwei, Yongshunshi and Chenzhou prefectures in Huguang, Tongren prefectures, Bozhou prefectures, Duyun prefectures in Guizhou, Chongqing prefectures in Sichuan and Guilin prefectures in Guangxi。Guizhou has been established as a province601From the historical point of view of the national province, Guizhou is not late。  

   Guizhou is a multi-ethnic province, the whole province has49Ethnic composition, minority composition ranks second in the country。Live in minority nationalities17There are so many ethnic minorities in the province37.9 %。Guizhou is one of the birthplaces of ancient human beings in China。早在20More than ten thousand years ago, there are footprints of human activities, the ancestors lived and multiplied here, creating ancient culture, Qianxi Guanyin Cave, Weining Jigong Mountain, Tongzi people, big cave people, Xingyi people, hole people, all told the world what happened in that era。When Guizhou province was established, its neighboring provinces were divided into Guizhou regions, and it still maintains close cultural relations with its "first territory" in history。The coexistence and common development of diverse cultures have formed a special image of Guizhou culture。During the Warring States period and the Qin and Han Dynasties, the ancient Yelang culture of Guizhou Plateau had begun to flourish。From the Wei and Jin dynasties to the Tang, Song and Yuan Dynasties, Guizhou had close economic and cultural exchanges with the outside world, and Guizhou culture embraced the Central Plains culture and the surrounding regional culture. Through the integration, Guizhou culture reached prosperity in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, so there were Tuji culture and Yangming culture。During the Revolutionary War, we had the culture of the Long March and the culture of the War of Resistance。These unique cultural pixels all represent the persistence of local culture and the integration with foreign culture experienced by Guizhou in each historical period, and all these have been highlighted by the numerous cultural relics protection units we have and the dazzling intangible cultural heritage。

Every regional culture is a gem, when it shines, it will never be submerged, the fact shows this, for thousands of years, those great names and the regional culture left by the spread of the name is still shining in the starry sky of history。

It has been said that in a place as big as a postage stamp, someone has won the Nobel Prize for Literature。That fully confirms this view, perhaps not entirely, some people say that the Nobel Prize for Literature, only one literature prize and itself, many masters in the world have not won, like Tolstoy, but at least it is a proof。

Most of my own novels are based on Guizhou, and I lay more emphasis on Tongren City, my birthplace, in Guizhou。Guizhou Fuzhi once praised Tongren:"Tongren is the only beautiful county in Guizhou。Tongren is located at the foot of Fanjing Mountain, the main peak of the Wuling Mountains, which is a place that belongs to the beauty of the mountains, the beauty of the water and the beauty of the people。Guizhou province was founded only 600 years ago, Tongren Prefecture was originally affiliated to Wuling County and Qianzhong County of Huguang Province, belonging to the category of Chu culture。My novel has a Chu flavor, which is also a necessity。If you want to give examples, the short story "Short River", "Knock the dog" novella "White more black less", "Crystal Valley" is the representative of Chu taste。Literature and region belong to the relationship between mother and child, in other words, the quality of the mother is related to the good of the son, and the folk customs, behavior patterns, language characteristics determine the taste of literature。
