At the beginning of the month, brother Mingcheng told me that the publishing house had contacted him and the prose collection “home in Suzhou” co-authored by US would be printed at the end of the month. Anyway, it is a happy thing that these scattered words can be collected and published smoothly. Although the big and small things were managed by brother Mingcheng, I just enjoyed my success, but I still felt quite a lot like waiting for the child to be born. One day at the end of the middle of the day, brother Mingcheng left a message on QQ, saying that the editor-in-chief had called him and the book had been printed and sent to Suzhou within a week. Faster than I imagined, I can see it in a few days, and it feels like a stone landing. Of course, there are still some worries besides excitement. I don’t know how the overall feeling of this book is. I agree with brother Mingcheng and I hope this book has a sense of simplicity and can show some classical elements in simplicity, which is as suitable as possible for the theme of home in Suzhou. On the morning of the 24th, brother Mingcheng called and said that the express company had sent the book to Suzhou. He had contacted him and sent it directly to the town. He asked me to take a time to visit him at noon, bring some books back by the way. I happened to have free time at noon, so I went to his place. As soon as we met, he was good at storytelling, and the overall feeling was similar to what we wanted. Looking at it carefully, what he said was that the cover was simple and elegant, not fancy at all, and the binding of the whole book was indeed classical. I had never thought that I would work with brother Mingcheng to make this prose collection. Brother Mingcheng is a native of Suzhou. He has devoted himself to literary creation over the years. Last year alone, there were two articles written by Fu Zi, which could be described as flourishing and impressive achievements. Home in Suzhou is a cultural brand launched and built by Suzhou municipal government recently. There are both poetry, calligraphy and painting, but there is only a lack of prose. Brother Mingcheng has been aware of this point, I have talked about this matter with me many times, and it happened that some of my words were about my feelings after moving to Suzhou. When brother Mingcheng decided to publish his prose, he sent out an invitation and asked me if I was interested in the combination of two people to produce a prose collection of “home in Suzhou. Of course, this is a good thing. The native Suzhou and Suzhou in the eyes of immigrants will certainly not have the same flavor. Mixed together, there may be some unexpected effects. If someone is willing to have a look more, after reading it, it is natural that it can’t be better. The next step is to select manuscripts. It really takes some time to select what content. I have lived in Suzhou for more than ten years, and have settled my family here. Suzhou can be called my second hometown; But it is inevitable to look back and see that the mountain village that took root is looming in my heart. I know that I am a little conservative, not as easy to put down as I said on my mouth. I have written a lot of words about nostalgia for mountain villages or people who are in other places with their hometown in these years, as well as many family essays, brother Mingcheng was quite optimistic, so he specially organized a series of “time off”. These articles were all revealing of my inner feelings. No matter to my family or the local country, they were all my own real feelings. Who can be ruthless if a person is not a plant? A word of love is more than a thousand things! Personally, it will never be the same! When she finalized the proofreading, her daughter put forward a lot of suggestions from a professional perspective, because what she learned was editing and publishing, which was also a kind of exercise and improvement for her. She put forward her opinions on the watermarks, pictures, the width and distance of the text, etc. We have been thinking about the application of flower window for a long time. Antique Buildings in Suzhou can be seen everywhere. Flower windows can be said to be a major feature of Wu school buildings. It is naturally very good to borrow them. More importantly, through the window, people inside can see the scenery outside, and people outside can also observe the movement inside. Optimistic about this element is hope. Our collection of essays is a window for many people to pay attention to Suzhou, understand Suzhou and even taste Suzhou. Of course, this is just my idea. Whether I can do it depends on the content of the book and the quality of these long and short words. Happily, the press adopted our suggestion. The binding of the cover and the back cover highlighted the strong charm of Suzhou, and the elegance of Jiangnan Watertown appeared on the paper. The small bridge and flowing water Family in Jiangnan are also chosen for each series of pictures, which further foil the characteristics of becoming a monk in Gusu water city. It suddenly occurred to me that there was no such popular Tang poem as the depth of the thrush. No matter whether this collection is in the eyes of a generous family, for me, it is absolutely more love than joy, and it is no different from my children. I believe that everyone who loves words will feel like this when treating his own words. My children grow up year by year. Words will whisper in the deep heart year by year! I received the book that brother Mingcheng gave to me, but I haven’t opened it yet. The unique fragrance of the new book came to my nose. In this breath, there was a wisp of invisible ink. In such a utilitarian and impetuous life at present, it is really good to have these quiet fragrant words and record your feelings!
