Word of the Day
Wednesday, June 13, 2007
Rochest Forest (proper noun) — The forest to the immediate northwest of Arcana City, flanking the Arcanan Vale, in the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender created the name of this forest from the character Edward Rochester out of Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre because she wanted something that hinted of darkness and "something hidden." It's not an evil forest, but, as all forests did in medieval days, holds mystery and supernatural elements.

Word in a Sentence: When Nigel Taiman sends Charlotte Anne home to her family to protect her from his younger brother, she is killed in the Rochest Forest.

Your turn! All ya'll have been slackin' on the creativity here as of late… Can you at least think of a sentence with a tree in it? Forests have trees. Scary trees, sometimes.

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
