My Book / 我的書


過了兩個星期每天做數小時電腦排版的生活,今天終於把我的書送去信誼比賽了。這兩週裡得到很多人的幫助,包括家人看了我同一張圖無數個版本,辦公室的同事每天被我糾纏問Indesign和Photoshop,連印刷公司的員工也無償地幫我修檔案,遠在義大利的凱特也拉我一把。好像是說,當你很想達到某個目標時,全世界都會聯合起來幫助你。

I spent hours doing the layout for my book every day during the past two weeks. Today I finally sent the book to the publisher for the picture book contest. God showered me with help during this period of time. There was Caterina in Italy, who read the book for me before I started the layout design. My family had to go through the repeated process of selecting the best image out of several similar ones for me. My colleague Anna in the office was constantly pestered because of my ignorance in Indesign and Photoshop. Even the employees in the printing company offered their help without charging me extra. I feel because I wanted to achieve the goal really badly, the whole world was united to help my dream come true. 

印成書之後念給楷維聽,聽到我說這本書之後就會離開我們一陣子,他很捨不得。不過當我的星星正在飛翔之際,離下個比賽的時間不到一個月,我心裡還有好多好多要說的故事⋯

After I had the book printed, I read it to Kai. He didn't want to part with the book upon hearing that it would be away for a while. Well, when my stars are flying, I have less than one month before the next competition is due. And there are so many other stories I want to tell...
