阑珊，珠海茶否创始人 － Lanshan, Founder, CHAFUL, Zhuhai.
DB：你在茶否CHAFUL工作了多长时间？How long have you been with CHAFUL?
CHAFUL has opened for 2 years. Plus, we did a lot of preparations before it was open a year ago. So, I have been working here for three years in total.
DB：你当时为什么会想开一个公众号写文章？Why did you want to open a WeChat account for writing your articles?
I have been writing columns for Southern Urban Daily and Zhujiang Evening News Since 2008. Later, a magazine wanted me to write them an article about why I loved living in Zhuhai, and I wrote it, which was called “The City I Love Is Forever at Late Night”. At that moment, I came to realise that I had been living in this city for a long time, but I never thought about how deep my relationship with it would be. So I decided to open a WeChat official account and shared all my stories with this city, recording all my moments, ups and downs, for this city.
DB：你一般会创作什么类型的文章？是随感而发还是有意下笔？What articles do you usually create? Do those ideas come up all of sudden or you make them happen intentionally?
Currently, the columns that I am writing for are stories on sentiment, interviews, event coverage, film and book reviews and lifestyle. The ideas for those contents come up all of sudden and I now barely have time to update as many articles.
DB：对于要工作的自由创作者而言，当你白天工作时，如果突然想到某些灵感想写下来时，怎么办？As a freelancer who also needs to work in the daytime, when you come up with some great ideas for your story during working, how do you manage to cope with that?
I used to bring my notebook with me in order to record down whatever pops into my head, but now it seems that my laptop has replaced my notebook.
DB：你有什么建议可以给那些想从事创作或者写作但又不敢踏出第一步的朋友？Do you have any suggestions for those who want to write articles but dare not take the first step?
I really want to say that “writing can be cancer”, “writing is just like the lighting in the sky, soon and sudden”, however, in fact, you are capable of writing as long as you are literate and you have a lot to express. Then, the only thing you need to do is to write down your first sentence and keep doing it.
