Translation Challenge:

In Carla Speed McNeil's graphic novel "Talisman" a young aspiring writer is her own worst critic. Her older brother, a somewhat-more-successful motion-picture artist, comforts her with the advice:

Anything worth doing is worth doing badly.

I think this would also be good advice to newbish conculturers and conlangers and conscripters and conworlders.

You know what a newby or n00by is, right? Someone new to whatever it is.
"Newbish" means, sort-of-like-a-noob.
Some of those of us who aren't experienced, even after we're not quite "new" anymore, may sometimes look at all we've struggled to achieve so far and say "what crap! I'd be ashamed to show anyone that".
The point of this advice is to keep at it. "Anything worth doing is worth doing badly." If we really want to do it we should just keep on practicing, even if we aren't good enough yet (in our own opinions). It's better to do something, even if it's wrong, than to get discouraged and give up.

I meant, "How newbish do you mean by newbish?", but that's an eon-old discussion.

Toki Sona? Where have I heard something like like before???

It's named after Toki Pona and Sona. Sona in agglutionating and Toki pona has 120 words. Toki Sona has 120 roots, which combine to make words (loooooooong ones.) Inspired by your conlang, Neiriko.

Thanks.

There are word boundaries in Neiriko, while there don't seem to be any in Toki Sona. Languages aren't like that. That's how Neiriko used to be before I realised it was just half-Romance-y words strung together.

I made a typo; it should be Ikahojal kahojkfğw.

I-ka-hoj-al ka-hoj-k-f-ğw.

Thing-worth-do-NOM.SING worth-do-copula-G22-bad.

There are boundaries. One word contains one verb, and copulas don't count.
