Just a few days left now until Christmas, how did that happen? I hope you’re having a less stressful week than I do – seriously, work is being ridiculous right now and there’s no way I’ll be able to cross everything on my to-do-list out before Wednesday. Oh well, the rest will just have to wait a few days.
So, about my plans for 2016 then. I said I’d translate Vågsånger into English, remember? Let’s just say, I tried translating a few pages and… no. Not doing that. It’s not that it’s hard, but it takes so much time – and time is the one thing I don’t have (a lot of). My revised plan is to hire someone else to translate it, because the time it would take to translate an entire novel is much better spent writing other, new novels.
Currently I’m focusing entirely on Entertaining the Sombrevilles. I’m doing the very first read-through now and I really do love this story – it’s just so much fun, and I think it shows that it’s my second novel. It’s a much simpler plot, sure, but I do think it flows better than Vågsånger, and it definitely was easier to write. This makes me very hopeful because it means I actually am making progress. Hopefully, I’ll just get better and better 🙂
Merry Christmas to all of you!
