midnightreverie: (Natsume)
It's earlier than planned, but I have posted the first two parts of chapter 1 over here. There is a total of four parts. It has yet to be proofread, so please don't mind any weird sounding bits.  

Here follow my comments concerning the chapter and differences from the manga. Don't read if you want no spoilers.

It seems I have underestimated a few things:

- the homework load for November is too big.
- commuting between hometown + uni is too long
- while not difficult, translating from Eng > JP is takes way too much time.

Since I have to give priority to Uni, because I do really need to graduate this year... I'll make this year's Nanowrimo the translation of Nightmare Dwelling! I suppose this makes me a Nano Rebel.

While I am translating Nightmare Dwelling from Japanese to English, I'll also be doing a full revision of an old Mononoke/Ghost Hunt fanfic by translating it into Japanese. The outcome will be strange, but I hope it will capture the Japanese part of the story more. ...probably to let it sound more authentic, if you know what I mean. I don't know if I'll ever release the Japanese version, which will be called δΊŒι€šγ‚Š (Futatoori), but the quality will certainly be questionable.

I don't know how I'll cope with this. I will probably hate myself, but it will probably be worth for the practice and better understanding of the story. After this is all done, I will have to translate it back into English again. How's that for self-made suffering? It will be done in romaji, because Nanowrimo word count checker is not very nice to the Japanese language.

Anyway, still a few hours left and tons of homework to do. Argh.

It looks like I'll be using this journal for Nanowrimo ranting...
