Interim word counter is now up for NaNo's site. Yay!

95 pages of text gives me a word count of... 1704. *blink*

>.<;; Yeah. Their word counter definitely doesn't do J text. *sigh* I'm so *not* looking forward to validating my text this year. I definitely have to use a kanji to romaji converter before submitting, and it's going to take hours to convert because it doesn't convert much text at a time. >.> I'd go off and cry in a corner, but Mai and Naru are busy arguing at the moment. I'd like the shouting to settle down first. :P

......*cry*

Yeah, I'm figuring I'll have to do this a chapter at a time or so. I'll probably start in another couple of days once I'm a bit more certain I'm not going to backtrack and fill in missing things again. ^^;

Oooh! Crumpets! ^o^

Ghost Hunt - Mai - No Way

Have a minion do it! And, um, maybe write a post somewhere in the forums asking the site to work on that for next year at least?

Oooh, minions! Now there's an idea! *laughs* Request/suggestion submitted. At the very least, more info is needed on the validation process. I can just imagine if I hadn't chanced upon a comment mentioning this issue. I would be beyond lost. >.>

Alright, stupid question then, if you're doing this NaNo thing in Japanese, is Japanese your first language or is it just for practice? Just a little confused...

*laughs* It's for practice. The Japanese Language Proficiency Test is on the first Sunday of December, and I discovered last year that my brain doesn't like switching over from English to Japanese after something as intense as NaNo. (Trying to prepare for the exam last year was painful.) English is well and truly my first language. ^_^

Ah, that makes sense, I was wondering since you are also translating the Earl and Fairy novels so you obviously have some grasp on the language, hope I didn't sound too stupid there...
