Think about the last time you saw the ocean. Any ocean. What ran through your mind? How powerful it was? How deep it was? How far it went?
When I was 18, I saw the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. I was in awe of the majestic beauty it made in connection with the sky and the sand. It seemed to go on forever, disappearing ceaselessly into a misty white line in the distance. Even some lakes are like that. It was because of that original inspiration that I gave a name to the Ocean in Forever.
Forever’s mainLand and nine IsLands are surrounded by a very large body of Water which is one enormous Ocean, called the Ceaseless Ocean. It is very much like the oceans we know, having its Hurricanes and mild Mist-filled mornings. The Ceaseless Ocean is surrounded on its boundaries by a thick line of Mist which no Creatures in their right minds will cross. It ebbs and flows, carries Pirates and Merchants and Travelers, and hosts a wild population of Merfolk.
The Ceaseless Ocean is the same Ocean which clashes against the Southern Cliffs of Blacktail IsLand, where the Blacktail Castle sits prominently on the Rock.
Tomorrow, I will share an excerpt from my second book, KittyVixen.
