Word of the Day
Rochest Forest (proper noun) — The forest to the immediate northwest of Arcana City, flanking the Arcanan Vale, in the epic fantasy trilogy 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! In honor of Bear Awareness Week and the PIVR show's celebration of it tomorrow night, I'm posting a "place" that you can put a bear in. Or a shapechanger. Or a wolf. Or whatever mythical creature you'd like to invent. The idea is to be clever and creative and come up with a sentence that rocks our little blogosphere world for a while. So let's see what sentence (or paragraph) you have for today's Word of the Day.

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