Lung Ying-tai talks about her role as an author – Business Weekly

From Business Weekly (Taiwan,) via T-Salon blog:

Prolific Chinese writer Lung Ying-tai was recently interviewed by Taiwan’s Business Weekly about the experience she went through before she issued an Open Letter to Chinese President Hu Jintao titled “Please Use Civilization to Convince Us”, wherein she criticized the Chinese authorities’ order to shutdown Bingdian (Freezing Point), a relatively outspoken weekly supplement of China Youth Daily.

Business Weekly (Taiwan): …How do you position your role and your mission at different stages?

Lung Yingtai: “As an author, I only care about what touches me, moves me, makes me angry and makes my tears drop. I am responsible for using the best Chinese characters to express my thoughts. Up until now. As for what the kind of impact that my essay have after it leaves my desk, how I am being perceived, these are not my matters.In other words, I don’t have any plans say, okay, “wild fire” (note: meaning angry) for twenty years, that’s why I have to go to Hong Kong, I have to influence Hong Kong and then I have to influence Beijing. It’s not like that. I am an author without a plan.”
