Haven’t posted the past 2 days. It’s not that I’m not translating, but that I don’t have anything translated that I can post yet.
To be more precise, I’ve begun work on the series that will take the ‘slot’ for Dragon’s Bloodline once it concludes here in 13 chapters. Do note that this is separate from the stretch goal’s reward and while I’m not ready to present the chapters themselves (releases should begin in two or three weeks)…
I decided to begin work on this due to all of the various sources of stress that have recently appeared in my life. I just needed to work on something that wasn’t translating for a while, so I started to look through various Light Novels and Web Novels to see what’s out there that I would want to work on. Obviously, I found one (two, technically, but the other is a candidate for the stretch goal and won’t be brought forth until the time comes).
I’m both behind here and am having troubles in real life, that’s plain to see. However, I can’t let either of those stop me from keeping Ziru’s Musings moving forward. I believe that it’s essential to me as a translator that I keep up a certain level of variety in my translations, both for my mental health and for refining my capabilities as a translator. I hope everyone understands and can agree with my decision.
I will, as ever, continue “catching up”. It may take some time, but I’ve proven in the past that I will always do so. Please keep believing in me!
With that out of the way, here is a sneak peak:
The Magus of Genesis
In an age long lost to legend and myth.
In an age where humans had still yet to establish a system of writing.
It’s said that there existed a mage in a country named Scarlet.
It’s said that he imparted knowledge concerning language and writing, taught how to cultivate the lands, instructed the ways of raising animals, and brought about the gift—nay, the magic of fire.
It’s said that he was a dauntless youth, a Dragon clad in scarlet red scales, a person worshiped far and wide.
It’s said that this man was the God of Civilization.
Yet strangely, his name had been virtually wiped from the records.
Therefore, he was simply referred to as—
—The Magus of Genesis.
