Recruitment – January, 2018

Rumanshi’s Lair is after a couple of new recruits.    This new year, I’ll be attempting to re-start all the major projects, which will need some help.   If you’re seeing this, you know what to do.

Translator
‘I, without possessing a job, aim to become an adventurer’ is in dire need of a translator.  If you feel you might be a suitable candidate, you can join my Discord or send me an email at rumanshi2@gmail.com with the subject ‘Rumanshi’s Lair Recruitment’

Editor
Editing at Rumanshi’s Lair is for my original novel, ‘The Harem was a Forced Goal’.  Editing for this will not be the same as editing translations.  You’ll need to comment on bad plot-lines, highlight issues in grammar and perhaps provide suggestions.
If you feel you might be a suitable candidate, you can join my Discord or send me an email at rumanshi2@gmail.com with the subject ‘Rumanshi’s Lair Recruitment’

Other Roles
If you feel you might have another task you’ll be good at, you can join my Discord or send me an email at rumanshi2@gmail.com with the subject ‘Rumanshi’s Lair Recruitment’ and explain what you wish to do.

Sunday’s Stuff – #1

I am no artist.  In fact, if I were to say anything about myself, is that I am the least talented in art.  At least, these days.   In the past, I did a couple of paintings and clay works which I think could be considered at least average, if not a little above.  However, that doesn’t mean that I still have that level of skill.   In the present, it’s below average.

Here’s a question:  What is talent?  Is it an innate ability that an individual possesses, or is it a skill that an individual can learn with consistent effort?   Perhaps.  Yet, I think it could be both the innate ability and the effort put into learning.   Or more like, surely it is.

Although a person with innate ability can easily do something, it is this ease that can cause them to lack the proper mindset to improve – much like a student who can breeze through their classes and not study.  They will remain good, but they can never reach ‘great’.    A person who lacks the innate ability might not find it easy, but very often to compare, or even beat those that do, they might put in twice the effort or even more than that.

With these thoughts in my mind, I wonder.  Is it that I have innate talent in things, and so I don’t try to follow through properly?  Yet, if that was the case, surely I’d find something I enjoy that I want to follow through with.   So, no, I do not have the innate talent that I’m thinking of.

So, then, if I was to consider the alternative, if you lack innate talent, then you might put in an effort to beat those who possess it.   I already am clear that I don’t have that mindset.

Therefore, I must propose a third option:  Those who are content with ‘good enough’.   They aren’t bad at something, they aren’t great at anything.   They will go through their life simply claiming that if it’s good enough, then it’s fine.  This is probably the place where I belong now.  A person who is content with average.

But now, am I content with being that kind of person?  Or do I want to be better than that?   A conundrum…  I’ve offered three types of people:  Those with innate ability, those without who seek to improve, and those who are content with their current ability.  If I, as the third type, decided to improve on not being content with ‘good enough’, have I become the second type of person?

For me, I do believe that the third type can become the second type.  And perhaps the first type is much more similar to the third type than I thought when I began writing this post.    It doesn’t matter, I suppose.   I will state my final thought.

I have decided to work on my skills, to improve them and find something I would like to do for a lifetime, or some of a lifetime.   These kinds of posts will be more often, and so will chapter posts, I hope.   But, here is the current state of my drawing:

OWMB 61

Hey, everyone, I’m finally back. I never meant to be gone so long, but I’ve got my schedule under control and I’ve finally gotten myself back into translating. I don’t have a set release schedule yet, but for now, here’s chapter 61.

THWAFG – Volume 2, Chapter 13

That’s right, another THWAFG chapter…  Finally.  But, good news, everyone!  Having now gotten an editor for THWAFG, here’s the plan:

Sunday:  Jobless Chapter (Nyanyan)
Monday:  Possible Release
Tuesday: OWMB Chapter (Rumanshi)
Wednesday:  THWAFG Guaranteed* Chapter
Thursday:  Possible Release
Friday:  Possible Release
Saturday:  THWAFG Guaranteed* Chapter

* Guaranteed chapters are affirmed that they will be posted, unless:
a) I end up injured or sick
b) Editing takes longer than expected
c) death
d)  Any other event which makes it so that guaranteed chapters will not be posted               on time.

Well, let’s see how this goes.
