I finished another story translation a few minutes ago. This time it was much easier to convert the narration and the final result was much better. I think it was because I was focused on nothing else, just the story. It is very hard to stay true to the idea that lives in the mind when the outside world constantly tries to communicate with the writer. The outside world is, of course, anything that exists outside of the chair where I sit while writing, so it is extremely possible that I will be interrupted many times per day!

This is probably why other writers rent houses far away from everyone, just to write. It is not only that they need to be inspired by something new, but they also need to be alone, focused. I need to find such a place!
