Reverso.net is a good contextual translator. But I work on the principle that less is more when using a language that your readers may not know.

Just finished and sent my chapter. Lots of fun!

Yes, but they tend to burn up unless completely covered. :twisted:

I see Novel-in-a-Day is on Twitter, though it seems confused; was talking about 17 October being the writing date @novelinaday

And done - 2400 words, a few of which may actually be connected to the brief.

As always, looking forward to seeing how it all hangs together.

Many thanks for the opportunity - I had a blast doing this, even though it's not a genre I would EVER write in.

Sent! And in the nick of time too. Gosh, this was hard. Thing is, I got traction on the chapter barely two hours ago and so now I'm pumped but I've spent the day suffering for my art, as it were :lol:

Anyway, Rog, feel free to tell me off if there are some blunders (I'm sure there are). If you need me to review/change things here I am at your disposal!
