House Dad’s Literary Life Chapter 761: Good news from others, my own desire (3/4)

Published:

想让自己尽快变得强大起来的人不只是郭子意,还有坚持每周五来撒哈拉出版社听课的于颖。

The person who wants to become stronger as soon as possible is not only Guo Ziyi, but also Yu Ying, who insists on attending classes at Sahara Press every Friday.

拿到了五万元扶持金的于颖,生活上似乎没有多大的变化,除了住处——她从阴暗拥挤的城中村搬出来,带着家人住进了一个虽然普通、可是安静漂亮的老式小区。

Yu Ying, who received the 50,000 yuan support fund, doesn’t seem to have changed much in her life, except for her residence-she moved out from a dark and crowded urban village, and took her family to live in an ordinary, but quiet and beautiful place Old-fashioned neighborhood.

这是一个已经建了有二十多年的某国营企业的福利房小区,于颖从一个已经搬出去住的老职工那里租来的房子。虽然还是楼梯房,还是两室一厅,不过比起以前住的城中村,现在的房子宽敞许多,窗明几净,也透风透气,住得更加舒服温馨!

This is a welfare housing community of a state-owned enterprise that has been built for more than 20 years. Yu Ying rented a house from an old worker who had moved out. Although it is still a stair room, it is still two bedrooms and one living room, but compared to the urban village in the past, the current house is much more spacious, the windows are bright and clean, and it is also ventilated, making it more comfortable and warm to live in!

不过,于颖还是继续在饭店上班,她没敢辞掉工作专心写作。

However, Yu Ying continued to work in the restaurant, she did not dare to quit her job to concentrate on writing.

是的,她没有破釜沉舟的勇气,但这无可非议,毕竟她还有抚养女儿的责任,哪敢在没有新的稳定收入之前,断掉家里唯一的经济来源?

Yes, she doesn’t have the courage to break the boat, but this is beyond reproach. After all, she still has the responsibility of raising her daughter. How dare she cut off the family’s only source of income before she has a new stable income?

当然,一边工作,一边写作,还是很辛苦的,更何况,于颖从事餐饮服务行业,工作时间很长。但于颖还是坚持了下来。而且,她每天周五还是会坚持来撒哈拉出版社听课,比她学生时代还要努力十倍、百倍。

Of course, working and writing at the same time is still very hard, not to mention, Yu Ying is engaged in the catering service industry, and the working hours are very long. But Yu Ying persisted. Moreover, she still insists on coming to Sahara Press every Friday to attend lectures, ten or a hundred times harder than when she was a student.

努力变得更强大,于颖是为了给自己的家人挣来一个更好的未来!

Strive to become stronger, Yu Ying is to earn a better future for her family!

……

五月第三个周五,于颖又来到撒哈拉出版社。

On the third Friday in May, Yu Ying came to Sahara Press again.

不过,今天撒哈拉出版社有些热闹,门口拉了横幅,摆了一些装饰,也有一些记者模样的人聚集,或者在拍照,或者在攀谈,三三两两地往里面走。

However, today the Sahara Publishing House was quite lively. Banners were pulled up at the entrance and some decorations were placed. There were also some reporters gathered, either taking pictures or chatting, walking inside in twos and threes.

“《我……有梦》——撒哈拉出版社儿童读物作者扶持基金……首部扶持出版作品新闻发布会!”于颖轻轻地念了一下横幅的内容。(注1)

“I…Have a Dream” – Sahara Press Children’s Book Author Support Fund…the first press conference to support published works!” Yu Ying read the content of the banner lightly. (Note 1)

旁边一个熟悉的声音传了过来:“唐奈。”

A familiar voice came over: “Tang Nai.”

“闻编辑。”于颖转头一看,才发现是自己的责编闻学峰,他刚好也在门口接待记者,“你说什么?”

“Editor Wen.” Yu Ying turned around and found that it was her editor-in-charge Wen Xuefeng, who happened to be receiving reporters at the door, “What did you say?”

闻学峰笑道:“唐奈,今天新闻发布会的主角,他跟你一样,是扶持基金扶持的一名新人作者,也是一个父亲。他的书今天出版,因为是第一个由扶持基金帮助下,完成和出版的作品,所以出版社给他安排了一个比较隆重的新闻发布会。”

Wen Xuefeng said with a smile: “Tang Nai, the protagonist of today’s press conference, he is like you, a new author supported by the support fund, and a father. His book is published today because it is the first book published by With the help of the support fund, he completed and published the work, so the publishing house arranged a grand press conference for him.”

不得不说,这是一个很幸运的家伙!

Have to say, this is a very lucky guy!

“这么快?他的书就已经出版了?”于颖有些惊讶,她的稿子进度很慢,才写到第三个故事。

“So soon? His book has already been published?” Yu Ying was a little surprised. Her manuscript progress was very slow, and she only wrote the third story.

当然,这也是因为她按照卢主编的叮嘱,精益求精地对待自己的作品。比如每次在撒哈拉出版社听完课后,她都会根据自己得到的新的领悟,不断地修改甚至重写之前的稿子,直到自己满意为止。

Of course, this is also because she treats her work with the utmost excellence in accordance with Editor-in-Chief Lu’s instructions. For example, after listening to a class at Sahara Press, she would constantly revise or even rewrite previous manuscripts based on her new insights until she was satisfied.

“别着急,你和唐奈不一样。”闻学峰安慰道,“唐奈写的是一个短篇故事,而且他本身也是一个画师,所以出书比较快,你写的是一个长篇故事,当然需要更长的时间去创作。”

“Don’t worry, you are different from Tang Nai.” Wen Xuefeng comforted, “Tang Nai wrote a short story, and he is also a painter, so the book is published faster, you write a long story , of course it takes longer to create.”

闻学峰说的也不对,唐奈谈不上是什么画师,他只是一个美术专业毕业的学生,而且在遇到扶持基金之前,比于颖还落魄,穷困潦倒,只能靠在广场给人画肖像画给孩子挣点奶粉钱。

Wen Xuefeng is also wrong. Tang Nai can’t be said to be a painter. He is just a graduate of the art major, and before he met the support fund, he was even lower than Yu Ying. Make portraits for people to earn milk powder money for their children.

撒哈拉出版社给了他一个改变的机会,不仅仅是给了扶持金,让他和孩子有栖身之所,还教他如何改变原来的画风,迎合孩子们的喜好。当然,唐奈也付出了努力,才有了现在的绘本出版。

Saharan Publishing House gave him a chance to change, not only gave him a support fund to give him a place to live with his children, but also taught him how to change the original style of painting to suit the children’s preferences. Of course, Tang Nai also worked hard to get the current picture book publication.

这是一个很励志的故事,明天肯定会被很多媒体争相报道。

This is an inspiring story that will surely be covered by many media tomorrow.

不过,人不只是需要励志的故事,还需要面对现实。

However, people don’t just need inspirational stories, they also need to face reality.

于颖就很现实地跟闻学峰打听:“他的书出版后,能挣多少钱?”

Yu Ying asked Wen Xuefeng realistically: “How much money can he earn after his book is published?”

“这哪知道?得看他能卖出多少吧!”闻学峰和于颖往出版社里面走,笑着小声道,“不过啊,我估计不会太差,之前市场部做过调查,儿童文学这个市场很大,你想杨总当是第一部童话集,出版了一年多,现在每个月依然能有几百万的税后收入。唐奈比不上杨总,但至少也能挣几十万、上百万吧?”

“How do you know? It depends on how much he can sell!” Wen Xuefeng and Yu Ying walked into the publishing house and whispered with a smile, “However, I don’t think it’s too bad. After investigation, the market for children’s literature is very large. You think President Yang is the first fairy tale collection. It has been published for more than a year, and now it still generates millions of after-tax income every month. Donnai can’t compare to President Yang. , but at least you can earn hundreds of thousands or millions, right?”

即便是一本书总共挣这么多,那也是彻底改变了唐奈的人生啊!

Even earning so much from one book has completely changed Tang Nai’s life!

“这么多?”于颖听了之后,眼睛都惊讶地瞪了起来。

“So much?” Yu Ying’s eyes widened in surprise after hearing this.

“对啊,所以说,好好写书!碰到撒哈拉出版社和杨总,是别人梦寐难求的机遇。”闻学峰忽然努了努嘴,示意于颖看另一边。

“That’s right, that’s why I say, write your book well! Meeting Sahara Publishing House and President Yang is an opportunity that others can’t dream of.” Wen Xuefeng suddenly pursed his lips and motioned Yu Ying to look to the other side.

于颖看了过去,她看到,撒哈拉出版社最大的会议厅的大门口,卢主编还有出版社几个高层正簇拥着杨轶,而杨轶和一个男人正在微笑地握手。

Yu Ying looked over, and she saw that at the entrance of the largest conference hall of Sahara Press, editor-in-chief Lu and several senior executives of the publishing house were surrounding Yang Yi, while Yang Yi and a man were shaking hands with a smile.

“那个就是唐奈。”闻学峰感慨道,“第一个出版书的作者,很幸运,因为他是第一个,所以出版社的宣传会比较隆重。以后的作者和出版的书,可能就没有这么盛大的发布会了,最多是请一些书卖得比较好的作者去出席一些活动或者签售会。”

“That’s Tang Nai.” Wen Xuefeng said with emotion, “I am very lucky to be the first author to publish a book, because he is the first one, so the publisher’s publicity will be more grand. , there may not be such a grand press conference, and at most, some authors who sell better books will be invited to attend some events or book signings.”

于颖倒不在意这些虚的,她看到杨轶和对方握了握手,说了几句话之后,便拎着一个袋子从后面离开了。

Yu Ying didn’t care about these falsehoods. She saw Yang Yi shaking hands with the other party. After saying a few words, she left behind with a bag.

“发布会不是还没开始吗?为什么杨总就走了呀?”于颖不解地跟闻学峰问道,“他不参加发布会吗?”

“Didn’t the press conference start yet? Why did Mr. Yang leave?” Yu Ying asked Wen Xuefeng in confusion, “Is he not going to the press conference?”

“不参加,卢总邀请过杨总,但杨总说今天唐奈才是主角,他不好喧宾夺主。”闻学峰说道。

“If I don’t participate, Mr. Lu has invited Mr. Yang, but Mr. Yang said that Tang Nai is the protagonist today.

确实如此,杨轶名气太大,他如果在发布会上出现,肯定会抢走大部分风头,而且记者们提问的对象,也毫无疑问都会落在他的身上。

Indeed, Yang Yi is too famous. If he appears at the press conference, he will definitely steal most of the limelight, and the object of reporters’ questions will undoubtedly fall on him.

“那杨总为什么会来?”于颖困惑地问道。

“Then why did Mr. Yang come?” Yu Ying asked in confusion.

“他来见一见唐奈,给唐奈这个新人作者一点鼓励。这是卢总的请求,没想到杨总这么忙的明星~IndoMTL.com~还是抽空过来了一趟。”

“He came to meet Tang Nai and give Tang Nai a little encouragement as a new author. This is Mr. Lu’s request. I didn’t expect Mr. Yang, who is so busy with the star~IndoMTL.com~, to still take the time to come over.”

闻学峰感慨道:“所以我说,你们能够碰见撒哈拉出版社和杨总,是很多人梦寐难求的机遇。杨总家大业大,瞧不上这点小钱,所以我们出版社,给作者的待遇是最丰厚的,还有完整的产业链,能帮作者做到作品最好的开发!即便你不像唐奈那样会画画,出版社还有几十个画师,可以帮你将绘本制作出来。”

Wen Xuefeng said with emotion: “That’s why I said that you can meet Sahara Publishing House and President Yang, which is an opportunity that many people can’t dream of. President Yang’s family has a big business, and he doesn’t look down on this little money, so our publishing house, The treatment for the author is the most generous, and there is a complete industrial chain, which can help the author to develop the best work! Even if you are not as good at painting as Tang Nai, the publishing house still has dozens of painters who can help you Make a picture book.”

虽然和闻学峰聊完后,于颖还是去出版社每周五举办的免费培训班听课,可是,她的心情久久无法平静。

Although Yu Ying went to the free training class held by the publishing house every Friday after chatting with Wen Xuefeng, she could not calm down for a long time.

于颖脑海里不断浮现出刚才会议厅外面唐奈激动的笑容,还有满脸的红光。

Tang Nai’s excited smile outside the conference hall just now appeared in Yu Ying’s mind, and her face was red.

“我也可以像他一样成功!”于颖心中升腾起了新的渴望,这是她除了最开始的对金钱的需求以外,燃起的第二个“为什么写作”的火焰。

“I can be as successful as him!” A new desire rose in Yu Ying’s heart, which was the second “why writing” flame that she ignited in addition to her initial need for money.

当然,钱还是最重要的!

Of course, money is the most important thing!

出版一本书,或许能挣几十万,上百万,这样她就没有了担心没收入的顾虑,可以辞掉工作,好好地在家写作,也能更好地陪伴自己的女儿。

Publishing a book may earn hundreds of thousands or millions, so she no longer has to worry about no income, she can quit her job, write well at home, and spend more time with her daughter.
