Today, I used all of my (so-called) free time scanning through my notes, making sure that "Around the World in a Bathtub" is as accurate as possible. I've also been trying to finish writing the glossary, and the most daunting part of that process is creating the pronunciation tips in the parenthesis.
It's fun but very challenging research. This is the first time in my life that I've ever wished that I majored in linguistics.
But that feeling passed very quickly.
"Around the World in a Bathtub" will be in bookstores next year, all thanks to my editor Alyssa and the good folks at Charlesbridge Publishing.
