 I've only ever heard of poor writers and artists. People of the arts only become famous and rich after they are dead. So I don't think I have much chance to make it as a writer. I've never actually written anything substantial, anything that's been validated by a writing competition judge. All I have to prove that I have tried to write are 1) a rejection letter for a short story I wrote and 2) a non-fiction article in a Restaurant industry magazine.
 
-What languages do I know? I know how to speak Mandarin, and I can write and speak English. I don't know French well enough to have a conversation, and I can read French with judicious use of a dictionary. I can fake-speak German - just pronounce every syllable and add in some gutteral utterance and thing start to sound German, but in reality I can't speak it, nor can I read it. I can read the model names of Porche cars (neun elfer) but that's all I can do.

 Sometimes I dream that I am writing - the words just fall in place and I work a hell of a lot harder in my dreams than I do in real life - wonder what that means.
