Word of the Day
Saturday, July 21, 2007
It's the final day of the Choices Meant for Gods Online Book Tour! So let's end the fantasy words from CMFG with a really powerful one…

Naegling (proper noun) — Sergeant Brendan Naegling is the leader of Arcana's "army" as it were in the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods; he's your typical Arcanan man—dark brown eyes, dark brown hair, strapping muscles from all that outdoor work, a good work ethic, lots of common sense, the ability to keep a secret about himself, the ability to keep the secrets that people share with him, good with a sword (please read innuendo into that), he's just fabulous all around

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender used this word for the name of the man Amanda Chariss will promote to captain in her army in Book II of the Choices Meant for Gods trilogy because Naegling is the name of the sword Beowulf used…

I really recommend people read Beowulf.

Word in a Sentence (from the high fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 409): Sergeant Naegling also had success pulling her into a discussion with Wold and Rohne that seemed to last the better part of an hour.

Your turn! Bonus points if you make up a sentence about the sword…

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