Yesterday I made a list. A recycling list. Of words to spruce up, add a bit of weight and color and atmosphere and perhaps an insouciant toss of curls, and send out. And in the translation I’m working on, I may have bit off more than I can chew. Maybe. But it gets me out of bed every 6 AM, wonders be.

Wish I could begin getting up at 530-6 AM again..but this mentally tiring job leaves me too tired to wake up before 730..:)(Just an excuse, I know)

You know what they say, sleep is wasted on the living and all that toss. Good luck with the translation. Fiction?

austere said...

yep, long fiction. :) but I'm an 8 hr sleep addict!

Amit-- I don;t buy that! Akota track is just 2 min away!

you're not going to tell us what you're translating? Or did I miss that post?

I'd translated a short story once:
http://iwp.uiowa.edu/91st/vol7-num1/introduction-to-pravinsinh-chavda

to continue the story, the writer had written a novel, this is what I'm working on.

thanks for asking. :) nope, I didn't mention this earlier.
