I was going to start with ‘mirror’ but that is just a bad Physicists joke and I am a bad Physicist.
When working through chapter 24 tonight and had to look up quite a few words. I love Google – I still remember sitting at home with an Oxford dictionary, a dictionary of etymology and Roget’s thesaurus, spending hours on a word or phrase, attempting to make it as funny as possible.
Today’s haul included Beagle, Beadle, Fox, Junoesque, Charming, cunning, prepossessing, glow-worm or glowworm or glow worm, psychotic, Goth, Visigoth, obfustication and prorogue.
I also invented a new word for female Orc – Forc. I bet someone has used it before!
At this rate I will finish editing ‘Strange Things from Uranus‘ and can carry on with ‘Trans-Uranic Elements: The Dark Side of Uranus‘ and ‘Fairy Hanny and the sons of Turenn.
Maybe then I can get on with my Inspector Flaange novels…
