I've decided to undertake a new challenge in my quest to conquer the Japanese language: to write an article in 日本語. I've been in contact with the monthly Hiragana Times about writing in their "Japan through foreigners' eyes" section. They asked me to send something through, so what I'm going to do is write it first in English (they need both) and then do my best to translate it.
Basically, I'll be writing about a typical day working for an English newspaper in Japan. I'll keep ya'all posted with the 原稿 as it progresses. I'm setting a deadline for next Tuesday, March 24.
