So, I got bored and started translating The Voyage of the Dawn Treader into Latin.  I was going to do The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but apparently it's MIA and I'm too lazy to put more effort into finding it.  As with most of my non-NaNoWriMo projects, it'll probably fall by the wayside, but you never know.  Maybe if I call it NaNoTraMo...?

The translating's pretty easy so far, except for a couple of words that weren't immediately findable in my dictionaries.

I'm so excited.

My ultimate goal with regards to Latin is to become fluent, or at least as fluent as I can become (speaking realistically, there are probably limits to this due to lack of native speakers, the fact that I don't really know anybody who's into Latin, and the relative scarcity of books in Latin).  Periodically I check my progress towards this goal by randomly going to the Latin Wikipedia and seeing how much of it I understand (and can pick up through context clues).  Apparently two semesters is the magic amount of Latin I need for it to not be completely frustrating to attempt to read Wikipedia.
