Word of the Day
Tuesday, July 17, 2007
Fermson (proper noun) — Lord Boris Fermson is one of the ofersey'n in the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods; he hails from the northern region of Onweald, near the border of Jovera

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender made up the word Fermson for Boris's name from the words ferry man's son because Boris hails from a long line of men who would ferry people across the Inland Sea from the city of Auckland to Jovera.

Word in a Paragraph (from the high fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 292): The first man, Lord Boris Fermson, a descendant of a long line of ferrymen, lived near the inland sea where his ancestors had carried travelers and goods from Auckland to Jovera for what seemed like centuries. Boris had grown into an able speaker, but spent most of his time listening. It was an art well-suited to his dark countenance. With both, he blended into shadow where his conspirators might forget he sat, hearing and remembering their words. It was surprising to most of Boris's peers how he could recall minute details of conversations (thus promises) past.

Your turn! Do you have a creative sentence about ferrying things about?

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