I selected today's word in honor of my online book tour, which launches tomorrow. (First stop: www.BooksOffBroadway.blogspot.com.) The post above tells how this "column" will feature all the funky fantasy words I built and borrowed from Old English/Anglo-Saxon and Latin/Spanish and Duran Duran/Arcadia (not so many of those in the book because I didn't want to get sued by my favorite band) to name different people, places, things, concepts, etc. But today! Today has just a positive, exciting word to get us in the mood!
Embark (verb) - To get started in or invest in an enterprise or business venture; to commence; to set out on a journey or adventure; to cause to board a vessel; to go aboard a vessel (from Late Latin imbarcare)
Word in a Sentence: In Sandy Lender's fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, the Taiman family is morose when Nigel and Henry prepare to embark for Bellan because of the danger involved in their mission.
Your turn! What exciting sentences do you have for me today?
"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
