Section Ⅰ Warming Up & Reading－Pre-reading
All writers have their own special ways of getting words down－a favourite pen, a special place, even a certain time of day. Five famous writers tell you their secrets.
I get up at seven or eight and then I write until lunchtime. I don't write after lunch. I wrote by pen until about four years ago when I realised that the rest of the world used computers. Although I have a new laptop, I still prefer to use my old computer.
British children's book writer
I had problems some years ago sitting at a desse I got pains in my shoulder, so I decided to write in bed. Now, when I have a story in my head I go to bed with a small notebook and fill it up. I keep my manuscripts (原稿) in the fridge just in case the house burns down.
I write in a room that used to be the garage (车库). Now it's full of books and photographs, I write with a soft red pen on a notebook. Each page is almost exactly 300 words long.
British poet and novelist
I used to be more nocturnal (夜间活动的), but since my daughter was born I try to keep more traditional hours. I have an office just outside the house above the garage where I keep my books and my treasures. I listen to music when I'm writing. I have no love for my computer, although when it's working we are great friends.
I write in bed, partly because it's the most comfortable and private place and partly because I like to write either at the beginning or the end of the day. I drink an amount of tea and I work on a laptop.

Canada is home to many mountains, which are found in every province. The highest mountain is Mount Logan in the Yukon, and many other mountains of the Canadian Rockies reach high into the blue skies.
The Rocntains begin in British Columbia and snake (蜿蜒) nearly 3,000 miles to their smaller low hills in New Mexico. Many of the mountains sit within state and national parks. A large number of popular tourist attractions are among the longest of all Canadian mountains. Many people spend entire vacations seeing the Rockies. Banff National Park in Alberta is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Home to Laise, the national park is on the top of many people's dream vacations. Several of Canada's top ski places are on the peaks (山顶) of the Canadian Rockies.
While the Appalachian Mountains are mainly known as a US mountain range (山脉), they don't end once they hit the Canadian border. While not the longest of the Canadian mountain ranges, the Appalachians snake nearly 2,000 miles from the Atlantic coast of Canada to Alabama. The things to do in this region are as various as the provinces themselves. Whether you're looking to experience the culture or the scenery, you'll have ample chances to experience what makes Canada such an amazing place to explore.
