Hi fellow writers,
I’m Ying Su.
As you know, writing is a craft.
And it’s also what I hope to do for my entire life.
I once heard a writer use a broody hen as a metaphor to describe himself. When a hen decides to hatch a clutch of eggs, she will sit on the eggs day and night without eating and drinking for a long time. So hatching means honesty, patience and sacrifice. It means to endure hunger and thirst. It means to give up the pleasure of foraging in the sunshine. When she hatches out into baby chicks, she’s already too tired to show off to others.
