Please introduce yourself to our readers.

 

Hello, I’m Lee Seula, the writer. I publish Dailee-sulla, I also run the Hey Uhm publishing house. I was born in 1992. I write diligently.

 

How was your childhood?

 

When I was a child, I was so shy that my talking wasn’t great. I think one whose speech isn’t good can write well. People who are good at talking can communicate so well that they won’t have any regrets because they say everything they want to. But those who are not good at talking go home with regrets. Those with regrets have a high probability of writing a diary. In that respect, I think I was a child who wrote a diary full of regrets. In my youth, I also wrote a lot of diaries back then.

 

I heard that there was one particular teacher who helped you become a writer.

 

I attended an alternative school. There were a lot of activities there that made me write. That school respected the students. I remember that there was a class that asked good questions. Questions were more likely to be exchanged between adults about their world view or values. I had a teacher who was polite and respected each individual’s writing personality. I think it was a fun class. For example, when I turned in an assignment, the teacher mixed up the assignments and covered the names so nobody knew who had written what. But even if you cover the name, you know. Because of the style. A person’s unique writing style. In that respect, I had a teacher who analyzed and encouraged me for my own personality and style.

Is there any reason you expressed your writing as ‘diligent love’?

 

If I didn’t write, there would be so many problems that I would never have thought about regarding people or events. I could have spoken about them much more harshly or made simple judgements if I didn’t write. But as I write, I keep contemplating. Most of all, I think from someone else’s position. I mean, I can’t help but think again. I thought that process was a work of diligent love, and because writing is a very hard labor it made me diligent in life. Because it made me diligent inside and outside. I expressed it like that.

 

Did you have any difficulties while publishing Dailee-sulla?

 

It was hard to have to show someone what I wrote every day. I don’t have an intermediate medium. So when I write, I get a lot of feedback the next day. For example, the post yesterday was fun, or there are some people who say that made them cry, it wasn’t fun, or ask me why I wrote that way. Because there are many bad reviews, I think responding to subscribers is hard. It’s like working in a call center. I think it’s a similar kind of work. Because I have to sit in front of the computer to deal with someone. At first, it was the most difficult thing.

What do you want to hear from your readers?

 

Even though I’ve heard it often, the one I still like the most is “It’s fun. Your writing is so fun.” It’s the same now. Even now, I like to hear it was fun to read. So I’m still trying to hear that my writing is fun to read. That’s why I’m writing. Because making it fun is the most important and difficult thing.

 

Do you have any topic you would like to write about in the future?

 

In this era of climate disaster, I want to write about how we will live. In fact, from an environmental perspective, it will be very desperate. In the coming climate disaster, I think it’s probably going to be harder for the poor. In such a world, I want to explore love and dreams and what it’s like to joke. I want the lives of LGBTQ people, my handicapped friends, queer friends, gay friends, transgender friends, non-binary friends, in my writing in a very healthy and cheerful world. And I want to talk about animal rights, too. All these are very serious topics. My goal is to write those attractively so that people read to the end.

 

What are your personal goals?

 

My personal goal is to become a grandmother. I want to live long. I want to have a long life as a writer.
