Word of the Day
Or...The Dragon visits an old practice

Remember when I used to post a Word of the Day each and every day? It was time-consuming and laborious for me. I stopped after...what...a year? Year and a half? I can't remember now how long I tortured myself. Today, while unpacking boxes in the den, I found notes and passwords and hand-written blog topics from eons ago. One of them: a Word of the Day entry.

I kid you not.

So here it is! A blast from the past...

Seethe (verb): to be agitated greatly, to be excited violently, to churn and roil and foam up (from the Old English seothan, with a long mark over the e)

Word in a Sentence: In the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Godric Taiman seethes like a petulant child when Master Rothahn taunts and antagonizes him.

Your Turn! This is the interactive part. YOU click on the "comment" link below and type a sentence of your own with the word "seethe" in it. We want something clever and cranky, of course! All the writers visiting the blog should put your best foot forward. All the readers visiting the blog should show us up. Seethe the day! (I couldn't help it. I'm posting this after a very full 17-hour day on 6 hours of sleep. And I'm not allowed to have caffeine. Imagine...)

What Would You Like Fantasy Author Sandy Lender to Read at Archon34?
Or...pick your favorite scene(s) from the Choices Trilogy

Fantasy Author Sandy Lender will do a few things with/for/at Archon34 in St. Louis this Oct. 1-3, 2010. One of those "things" is a reading. Back when I had only one novel out, I had a pretty easy time picking scenes for these readings. Now...not so much.

So weigh in with your faves. What scene(s) from Choices Meant for Gods, Choices Meant for Kings, or What Choices We Made (vol 1) would you like me to read at Archon? Or should I throw caution to the wind and read something from the soon-to-be-released Problems on Eldora Prime? (Glenn Cook will have copies of Problems on Eldora Prime at his booth in the dealer's room.)
