The biggest satirical newspaper in Bulgaria, Hornet (Стършел, est. 1946), published my Bulgarian translation of Anton Chekhov's The Story of a Business Venture. Technically, Russian is my third language, but this account is supposed to be the English voice-over of my endeavours as a Bulgarian writer, therefore the mish-mash.
Translated into Bulgarian by the Russian version, История одного торгового предприятия, А. П. Чехов, 1892

Well, I'm happy :) Bulgarian New Social Poetry Magazine's "Anthology III" includes a chapter excerpt from a short novel I am currently working on. The chapter's title is "We Are with The People's Militia." It details an episode from the events in the novel in December, 1985, during a months-long surveillance of the underground criminal environment in the capital city of Sofia, Bulgaria, only 4 years before the fall of the communist regime.
Finished my second Jack Reacher book only on the 5th day (2 days earlier than what I set to myself).
I don't know what to read next week, but I have 2 days to figure it out.
I am smiling, cause I finally feel that I am reconnecting with my old self, who read books, like you eat candy.

I am also starting a new yoga 30 day thingy, this is also the second one.
I archive it, cause why not, plus the internet is not forever (remember when we say that "internet is forever", how naive we were). Unfortunately it's in webm format, since youtube-dl (or whatever the new name is), that's the default format. I will sure convert it to mp4, so I can use it more widely.
After yoga, I will take a shower, eat some eggs and watch some twitch, or just read something non-fiction stuff.

Not that I am drawing any rich parallels, but I always remember about Brodsky and his struggles with the English language when he had to start writing directly in English. When I am trying to come up with something passable, silly involuntary mistakes like "thing" instead of "think" drive me to the ground.

Me: One thing I really dislike about Mastodon is that you can't easily find & follow accounts based on your interests
My bf a month later: So I designed this search engine https://fedisearch.skorpil.cz for you (and everyone else) to search people on Fediverse

Re-sharing one of my testing Neocities posts, this time from my Wordpress website. It's way too silly not to.
