Word of the Day
Thursday, July 19, 2007
Meyganseywal (proper noun) — The Bay of Meyganseywal is located in the region of Mon'dore on the continent of Onweald in the high fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods; this is a significant location because the geasa is prevalent in Mon'dore—important people are raised and trained in this region—a convent/conclave for geasa'n women (controversial place, actually) is located in this region

Etymology: The latter half of this word is from the Old English word saeweal meaning seawall or shore. The first half is from my fabulous and coo-el graphic art friend Megan Kissinger who designed the map of Onweald for me. Because she's important, her name went on an important place. :)

Word in a Sentence: In the high fantasy trilogy Choices Meant for Gods, the wizard Hrazon of Mon'dore knows of the legends of warlords and kings coming ashore at the Bay of Meyganseywal, and he has shared this history of Onweald with his ward, Amanda Chariss, during her training.

Your turn! Any sentences about seashores? Surely you've had a lovely vacation at the beach…
