It drew a smile on my face. Not for the pathetic amount of view or anything, but i realized there’s an increase on those who commented on the English version. I don’t really understand why i’m smiling so big, but my guess will be because in the end, i managed to persuade some of the readers (the eager and curious ones especially) to read the original version of my piece.
Don’t get me wrong, i enjoy translating and honestly i think i’m getting more and more comfortable doing a story in my own language. But to be appreciated in the purest and most honest writing form i did, was extremely fulfilling. I wish i can share the intended feeling i originally have in the English version into Indonesian language, yet i know there’re lot of gaps here and there for the ‘lost in translation’.
so to those 221 people, especially the 5 that liked it and 11 that commented, thank you so much. You guys made my day and somehow made me believe i can deliver my writing whilst persuading of a better understanding in language gaps… I’m sure you all agree with me about some missing gaps and awkward translation 😝
Until next blab!
