She talked about her life experiences humorously, described her writing process, told the children that she had the dream of becoming a writer since childhood and that she likes writing diaries and letters. She loves to observe life especially after she became a mother because her sons Dong Dong and Ding Ding were the source of so much inspiration. She felt their innocence which enabled her to begin her children's literature journey.
She told the children, "the saliva Dragon" is how to change from three words to three thousand words, "copy sleepy sheep" is how to name it ...... the creation is a relaxed and funny thing it comes from life, but also need to imagine, the children listened with great joy, like being in a fairy tale world.
