Heh, I've read about this issue before; when you do a bunch of research about a subject, you have to remember to show restraint when you get to the actual writing process, because you'll find yourself tempted to dump in all those interesting tidbits you spent hours digging up. :D

That's definitely something I've thought about myself. 
                                    
                                    Both the trust aspect, and also the fact that you can lose some of the beauty and refinement of the original text as it's translated.

That sounds kind of like me. Night owl  and procrastinator to the end. :D
                                    
                                    Writing an entire book in two to four weeks, though....?!???! Dang, I WISH I could manage that! :D

This is love. You don't have to understand it but just feel it. 😊

To write is communicating your soul to others and it becomes magic when they understand what you mean even how separated you are with them by distance because feelings know no distance.

It's the only activity which after being written down, you'll be surprised how many people on earth would want to be with you by reading what you wrote.
