It's been a month or more since I last wrote here. More.
I've been translating my little fingers off for the past several weeks. The first few weeks, I could only manage 100-300 words a day. I was also still playing with the idea of taking care of chores and errands during the workday. Then last week I committed myself to 500 words, and to not allowing chores to get in the way of my work. Today I've already translated a little more than 700 words from Polish. That's only about 3 pages from the book I'm translating. I have 160 more pages to go, at which point I will have translated my first book.
I've translated a lot of poetry prior to this project. From multiple languages: French, German, Polish, Russian. And I've translated a handful of letters and articles, but this is the longest work: a collection of reportage.
