day 44

day 44

I gradually find it hard to immerse myself into the plot of a story. I'm getting used to thinking about the characters' personalities, the cultural background, and the purpose of producing the story. Though I've read an interview with a director who once said:"it's much easier to make people cry than to make people laugh", I still find it hard to get the "points" that will be touching enough.

I think...maybe there is no "common sense" in the world. When reading fictions created from other cultures, I think that's just what people living in that culture would do in their life. I seldom feel anything sentimentally real when reading them. The more I read, the more firmly I believe there's no "common sense" in the world and the more confused I am.

I think I know Chinese culture as my mother tongue is Chinese. However,  I must confess that sometimes I don't understand Chinese people as well. Actually I know little about the world, but I think that will be enough for living to only know what I want.     


I think words only become powerful when people think they are powerful. They are just words, and if one doesn't understand the language, they mean nothing at all...
