This is the first guaranteed chapter of the week! ....
. . .
For those of you who have been following ISSTH for a long time, you might remember that I started out translating as I went. It quickly became apparent, however, that ISSTH is too complex in terms of plot and foreshadowing to make that the best way to do it. I'm happy to report that I have been reading ahead, and am now much further in the raws than I am in the releases. Furthermore, I've set a goal (and have kept it for a while) to read at least one more chapter ahead in the raws than I translate per day. Since I'm translating 14 chapters per week, that means I should be reading about 21 chapters per week minimum. Thanks to Baby Deathblade's love of waking up in the middle of the night, I've even been exceeding the goal lately.
