It's been so long since I've posted actual content, I'm not sure I know what or how to write anymore... ^^; Actually, when it comes to HakuYou, if I'm not mistaken, the next vol that hasn't really been covered either by summaries or through point-form description in the timeline would be v 11 (花嫁修業は薔薇迷宮で / Hanayome Shuugyou wa Bara Meikyuu de) Bridal Training in the Rose Maze.

Very little about v11 )

Otherwise, I recently started following the thread on shoujo light novel sales rankings and came across the following info for (some) Jan releases.

sales rankings and Sugar Apple Fairy Tale )

Because I seem to be stuck wanting to do too many things and therefore not working on *anything*, I figured I'd make a list of said things and start picking them off the list bit by bit. Sadly, these things tend not to be quick and easy things. *sigh*

teh list )

Ouch. And from the list * (vol 18 translation) is probably going to be the first project while ** (manga vol 1 scanlation) is questionable for a project.

the whyfor )

As for the 'how' for the first project... Since I'm wanting to challenge myself, I'm thinking about posting *daily* to my DW account at about midnight local (MDT) with whatever I've accomplished (to the end of the nearest paragraph, not chapter / section). This is to keep me honest with myself and my progress. I figure if I do it that way, since it's so visible a) people can poke me if I don't do anything (sic get on my case), b) I can't lie about what I did / did not do, and c) hopefully it'll keep me motivated and working on things. :P Of course, it also assumes that a) does in fact happen and that people will both follow my progress and will poke me (sic send hate comments) if I don't post. ^^; (I know it's counter-intuitive to send hate mail for not working on things like this, but I really want to get this done and suspect I'm going to need some prodding. Sort of like you sometimes need that slave-driver in NaNo. ^^; )

Anyhow, will probably change the date on this thing later so that it's always up top for the next few months or so. :P And the first couple posts for v 18 will probably be cross-posted but won't be thereafter since I'm going to translate to the nearest paragraph. That means things could end quite awkwardly in the middle of a scene some days. ^^; Anyhow, here's to hoping things go well and that we'll see a full volume translated in about 3 weeks time. ^^;

First post will go up tonight (might be a bit 'long' (relatively speaking compared to how things will be from hereon) since it was supposed to be done yesterday, but... *sigh*) . Shall see how things go from there...... ^^;

Wow! Pretty much on time. :P Final word count: 56,784.

Ahh, those two... )
shadow: (Default)
Hrmm... tomorrow could be interesting. Shall see if things end up being posted on time, or if I decide to delay a couple of hours and just finish everything off. It's hard to say for sure yet. Currently somewhere on pg 270, so finishing everything that remains by tomorrow's posting is probably a bit dicey. ^^; However, I suspect it won't be worth splitting into two posts, so we'll see how things develop as they develop tomorrow. ^^;

clicky! )

Hrmm... somewhere on pg 258. This part's much much slower to translate than most of the rest of this book has been. >.<;; Have much more work to do to if I'm going to finish in 2 more days. ^^;;

And when double checking something, I got the weirdest machine translation: A man is dragged and sold wholesale. *blink* I'm *pretty* sure that was supposed to be a/the man was dragged down. *laughs*

I'm having a tough time translating this current scene. I think it's because of all the action in it. :P Currently somewhere on pg 245. Ouch. >.<;

Edgar, Edgar, Edgar... )

*laughs* And a bit of effort to today's post courtesy of yesterday's pathetic showing. ^^; This brings us up to somewhere on page 237.

Read more... )

*laughs* Whoops. Doing stuff is one thing, but... even I have to admit, only getting to p 218 is rather pathetic. ^^;; Ah well. That's what I get for getting distracted by something shiny. :P

Now somewhere on pg 210. Slowly, but surely.

Hrmm... )

Hmm, intrigue. We've broken the 40k word mark now. ^^;
shadow: (Default)
And we're now somewhere on pg 196. Yay! I think I might actually start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel eventually. ^^; (Okay, maybe not quite yet. There's still a lot left to do, but we're in the final third.)

shadow: (Default)
Umm... somewhere on pg 178. >.> I really should start this thing before 9PM... Might actually make my daily target if I did. (Doing stuff after midnight would help, too. Motivation is somewhat lacking at the moment.) >.>

shadow: Hmph! (Corti)
Picking up from the last line of the previous post thanks to a missing fragment. Gotta love the Japanese language sometimes... >.>

This brings us up to somewhere on pg 167. Enjoy.
shadow: (Default)
This brings us to late pg *153*...? Methinks someone's been slacking... >.>

Hrmm )

Enjoy.
shadow: (Default)
This brings us somewhere into pg 143.

This brings us up to pg 119.
shadow: (Default)
I get the feeling I'm starting to hit the 'I want a break now' stage. >.> This brings us almost to the end of pg 107 and the current section. Didn't quite make it to the next break. Ah well. ^^;

Hrmm... )

Enjoy.
shadow: (chibi Edgar)
Wow, the first time things break at a break. :P This brings us to the scene break on pg 94.

Ah, those two. ^o^

Lydia, Lydia, Lydia... ^^; )

Enjoy!
shadow: (chibi Edgar)
Ah, but I do like this book. :P We're now somewhere on pg 81... >.<;;

clicky )

ROFL! What a place to end! ^^;;
shadow: (Default)
Ack. ......I get the feeling there were things in this part that I wanted to tweak. ^^; Mostly dealing with word choice, but... *shrug* Oh well. Still slow going. ^^; This brings us to mid pg 67.

clicky )

Huh. It doesn't take as long to post when I'm not X-posting. I'll have to keep that in mind for next time. :P

Enjoy!
