i'm thinking about coming back to DA, it's been a while

It’s like they say

Sometimes you’re ready to face new challenges, sometimes you’re not.

The thing is, opportunities won’t wait forever.

Even though I’m still a newbie, I wanted to try and translate my novel (Spanish-english) and I have to say, I did a good job. It’s not perfect, there are still tons and tons of things to fix. But by the time I got to write the last page, I was immensely proud of myself.

And now that I just mistakenly opened and old file in Word, I could notice how much I’ve progressed. I can tell I’m better at writing than I was two years ago and I can’t tell you how happy that makes me.

I suffered and cried during these last seven months because I was foolish enough to believe that I could handle the pressure of translating 75k words from one language to another. I suffered even more as I read the beautiful words of native english speakers and how they could transform a few lines into almost tangible poetry. While I, well, could barely write a line without having to consult the dictionary for more than a couple of times.

In the end, it was all worth it and I’m better now because of what I made me do. I suffered, yes, a lot. I cried, yes I did. But never gave up.

I’m gonna take a few days now to relax, and read.

And then, the editing process will begin (cue dramatic music)


Anyway, don’t decide that you’re too unready for anything. Just go for it.

Don’t talk yourself out of things just because you fear you won’t be perfect. No one is.
