Welcome back everyone!
I decided to start this blogpost with a weird video intro in japanese. Why? - Why not.
However, if you didn't understand this video that's okay! - It's about my writing and some more details of my recent interview with NIKKEI, a nation wide newspaper in Japan. The video is obviously aimed at my japanese audience that might have a few follow-up questions to this weeks part of the interview which focused on me as a writer / novelist. It describes how I got into writing, how I wrote my first book and how I wrote my latest novel which is currently in editing. If you are interested in my writing, don't worry! I will make a follow-up video with the release of the next novel and I will also adress the translation / sequel questions I got in the coming #AskHimezawa video.
I am glad I got the chance to talk about the things I am working on and also show Japan that I am not just another pop culture obsessed foreigner, but also a hard-working individual. Sadly since expressing this in japanese culture is a no go, it doesn't really come across - especially when you are forced into this 'humble woman' role that is present in the entertainment industry. As I writer I get to freely express myself, try out new things and be brave, which helped me on stage and as a person as well.
