  • All writers dream of success. Yet some writers turn their back on success the moment it comes along. J.D. Salinger, the American author, is a good example.
    On the face of it, the future did not look promising for the teenage Salinger. He seems always to have been running away from something. First it was school, then he dropped out of New York University. Finally, after failing to find a career in his father’s food import business and dropping out of yet another college he decided that his destiny was to be a writer. In the same year he joined a writing class at Columbia University which was taught by Whit Burnett, founder and editor of a magazine called Story. The March-April issue contained a story written by Salinger entitled ‘The Young Folks’. In it there are early versions of the moody, selfish youths that appear in his later fiction. Soon, his stories were appearing in various mass-circulation magazines but it was the famous New Yorker which he dreamed of, believing that publication within its covers would indicate his future potential as a serious writer.
    Salinger has a huge reputation around the world yet it rests mainly on just one novel, The Catcher in the Rye. Published in 1951, it soon became highly popular with teenagers who identified with the hero’s powerful sense of dissatisfaction. Its success made Salinger a public figure. Most writers, of course, would welcome this. Salinger, however, hated it and refused it. He moved to a small house in Cornish, New Hampshire, where he lived away from society until his death in 2010 at the age of 91.
    For Salinger, fame and artistic honesty were not the same thing. Some people become writers because they wish their works to speak for themselves. Salinger appears to have been disgusted by the idea that he had become the spokesman for a generation. In death he has perhaps achieved his highest goal: to be out of the spotlight, represented only by his work.
    【小题1】According to the article, J.D. Salinger is an example of _____________.
    A. a selfish and moody youth       B. a serious writer who hates fame
    C. a famous American author       D. someone who lives away from society

  • One cold night, I was growing sick of my life in San Francisco.There I was walking home around one o’clock in the morning after a  1 practice at the theatre. With the opening night only a week away, I was still learning my lines by heart. I was having   2 handling my part-time job at the bank in the daytime and my acting at night at the same time. As I walked, I thought seriously about  3 both acting and San Francisco. I had  4 too much of city life.
    As I walked down the  5 streets under the tall buildings, I felt very small and cold, so I began  6 both to keep warm and to keep away from any possible robbers. Very few people were still out except a few homeless people under blankets.
    About a block from my  7 , I heard a sound behind me. I   8  quickly, half expecting to see someone with a knife or a gun. The street was empty. All I saw was a shining streetlight. Still, the noise had made me  9 ,so I started to run faster. Not until I reached my apartment building and unlocked the door did I   10 what the noise had been. It had been my wallet  11 to the sidewalk.
    Suddenly I wasn’t cold or tired anymore. I ran out of the door and back to where I’d heard the noise. Although I searched the sidewalk   12 for 15 minutes, my wallet was nowhere to be found.
    Just as I was about to quit the  13 , I heard the garbage truck stop to the sidewalk next to me. When a voice came from the inside, “Alisa Camacho?” I thought I was dreaming. How could this man know my name? The door opened and out jumped a small blonde man with an  14 look in his eyes. “Is this what you’re looking for?” He asked, holding up a wallet.
    It was already 3 a.m. by the time I got into bed. I couldn’t get much sleep, but I had got my wallet back. I also had got back some  15 of city life. I realized the city couldn’t be a bad place as long as people were willing to help each other.

  • Do you remember the name of your kindergarten teacher? I do. Her name is Mrs. White.
    I don’t remember much about what we learned in her   36 , but my mother once told me we used to   37   a lot. And I would   38  what I wrote and she would look at it and see there were so many   39  , but no red corrections. And always a star. Sometimes even a “Good”! That made my heart filled with   40 , but worried my mother. So one day when she met Mrs. White. She asked her why she never   41  my mistakes; why she never red-penciled in the wrong   42  of words or pointed out grammatical errors.
    My mother said Mrs. White said “The children are just   43  to get excited about using words, about   44  sentences. I don’t want to dampen that   45  with red ink. Spelling and grammar can   46 . The wonder of words won’t …” And maybe she didn’t   47  it exactly like that because it was a long time ago and   48  my mother told me was just what she could remember.
    Thanks to Mrs. White, I   49  up learning to use words with loving   50 . I had no qualms (顾虑)about writing what I meant   51  I couldn’t quite spell it out. A thought comes into my mind that if Mrs. White had used her red pen precisely, I   52  wouldn’t be telling you about this now. I look   53  now and think she must have been a rather   54  teacher ——to exercise such red-pen-restraint (不纠错)——to   55  the joy, wonder and excitement of expression.

  • Dear Friend,
    The recent success of children's books has made the general public aware that there's a huge market out there.
    And there's a growing need for new writers trained to create the $3 billion worth of children's books bought each year ... plus stories and articles needed by over 650 publishers of magazines for children and teenagers.
    Who are these needed writers? They're ordinary folks like you and me.
    But am I good enough?
    I was once where you might be now. My thoughts of writing had been pushed down by self-doubt, and I didn't know where to turn for help.
    Then, I accepted a free offer from the Institute to test my writing aptitude(潜能), and it turned out to be the inspiration I needed.
    The promise that paid off.
    The Institute made the same promise to me that they will make to you, if you show basic writing ability:
    You will complete at least one manuscript(手稿) suitable to hand in to a publisher by the time you finish our course.
    I really didn't expect any publication before I finished the course, but that happened. I sold three stories. And I soon discovered that was not unusual at the Institute.
    Since graduation, I have authored 34 nationally published children's books and over 300 stories and articles.
    Free test and brochure
    We offer a free aptitude test and will send you a copy of our brochure describing our recognized home-study courses on the basis of one-on-one training.
    Realize your writing dream today. There's nothing sadder than a dream delayed until it fades forever.
    Sincerely,

    Kristi Holl, Instructor
    Institute of Children's Literature

  • Beijing has started a battle to get rid of "Chinglish" (Chinese English).The "Language Mandarins" of Beijing have decided that Chinglish is a disease for China's modernizing claim and must be obliterated before the city hosts the Olympic Games in 2008.
    A road sign on the Avenue of Eternal Peace (Chang'an Street) ,for example, advises: "To Take Notice of Safe; The Slippery Are Very Crafty", a warning that the sidewalk was slippery(滑).Another sign in a Beijing park reads: "Little grass is smiling slightly, please walk on sidewalk."
    Li Honghai, the city official in charge of the battle, said," Linguistic perfection (语言美) is becoming increasingly important with the rise in the number of the foreigners flowing into the city."
    However, not everyone shares the disdain (蔑视) of the Beijing government for the mixed language."The choice of words is pretty much.One can either choose the verbs, adverbs, nouns or whatever one likes," explained one Hong Kong linguist on an Internet website.
    So many examples exist that several Internet sites have been set up to collect Chinglish phrases.Many come from English instructions on packages such as a candle marked with "Keep this candle out of children" and a model boat—curiously named Posh Sailboat—which means, "Please don't place it in dusty play."
    If the battle against Chinglish is successful, Chinese will also turn their attention to the English-language versions of newspapers, which play an even more important role in teaching right English.
