godsknighofnight asked: Okay found your tumblr, from the street sign with Mapp on it. Do you ever read Romantic (nature,science,and emotional poesy, of the 1700's), and how is life as a Asian American, does it offer a cool lifestyle and unique culture to your persona? Sorry for sounding like a out of work reporter. I am just a young writer trying to make conversation :D
I read many things. I’m not just an Asian American: I came here on my own at age 15 and became stranded here and had to make ends meet and learn English at age 16 while going to school - unique background brings unique perspective. I always wanted to be a writer in my native country but I never made it because I came to the U.S. and I had to learn to speak a totally different language.
Many years later I learned that I cannot be a writer (English is my second language which I learned a little too late and thus no formal English education whatsoever) but I can still write.
