Word of the Day
Wednesday, July 18, 2007
Layome (proper noun) — The Layome Lake resides at the end of a river that feeds out of the Saweyl Mountains where gems and precious stones are mined on the far west side of Onweald

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender created this name based on the sound of the Old English word leoma (long mark over the e) meaning light, gleam, or luminary. Because of the precious stones chipped off during the mining process in the Saweyl Mountains north of the lake and carried in the river's current to the lake, the waters take on a gleaming or luminescent effect all the time.

Word in a Sentence: In Book II of the Choices Meant for Gods trilogy, Chariss tells Nigel that Hrazon got the amethyst for her mother's sword out of the Layome Lake.

Your turn! Any shiny thoughts to turn into fabulous sentences for me today?

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