I am Jigglypuff!
Right, I’ll try to keep this short. Basically I’m a really whimsical person and I chose the series I’m translating now randomly, I also chose my name, blog name, and site randomly. Didn’t even know if I could actually translate with my level of Japanese, although, I have read novels in Japanese… but I’ve never translated.
Anyways, I’ve finally decided on a more apt name for myself. I chose my avatar randomly too, but it’s grown on me. And as such from this day on, I shall be referred to as Jigglypuff! Jiggly-sensei! 😀
TLDR: 1 Chapter everyday. If it’s one of the longer ones I’m cutting it into parts.
So I’m going to change the schedule again. This time I’m going to do things by parts. A normal Chinese webnovel chapter actually goes for around 2k to 2.5k words in English after translation. Or at the very least CD does.
The Man Picked up by the Gods goes from 2k to 6k+ words in English after translations. This discrepancy is just ridiculous. So I’ve technically been doing double or triple releases on some days. Chapter 22 is an example of almost 6k words at 5.6k words, and no, that’s not the longest one. Just one of the more recent long ones.
And so I’ve decided to post chapter parts every day from now on instead of full chapters for a total of seven chapter parts. Don’t worry, I’m not just doing this because I like cliff hanging people. It’s because it’s actually annoying to randomly realize that I have to write a 6000 word translations on some days. Anyways each chapter part will have around 2k to 2.5k words. That chapter part may or may not actually be a full chapter. It’s so random so who knows, you might actually get seven chapters in a week or just two long ones and one short. But regardless you’ll get similar number of words.
If there’s any discrepancy in the number of words between chapter parts from now on, that’ll be because I’m looking for a good place to cut the chapter. So one may end up longer or shorter than the others. But you won’t get a situation where one chapter is 2k and another is 500words. That won’t be happening.
Donation and Extra Chapters
So this is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, I hope you guys don’t get mad. It’s optional anyway. I’ll do an extra chapter part whenever the donation box reaches 50$. And I’ll commit to releasing a total of at least three of these in a week. Anything more than that, depends on me. If I can afford to release more, then I will. I’ll make some site changes to make the queue number viewable.
Schedule for Extra Chapters
In every week from now on there will be 7 regular chapter parts each at 2k to 2.5k words. With extra parts I’ll simply increase that from 7 to 8 to 9… etc. And I’ll be releasing it sometime in that week.
