Virus, virii, viral, viralis.

I have a cold right now, so mentioning viruses is pretty apt. 

Yes, I checked. ‘Virii’ is one of those misnomers in which we try to use Latin and turn -us into -ii for the plural.  Kind of like octopus, which is Greek so you cant say ‘octopii,’ as cool as it sounds. Try ‘octopodes’ if you want to play the language of origin game, or else ‘octopuses’ is fine.

I had an interesting thought this morning; “I don’t simply think outside of the box; I made my own box.” To which I would add, I made it myself, the wood grown organically.  It has a dragon in it, and Loracaz could use the wood to make a spear and defeat evil if he had to.  Enjoy your fun trying to think about that one, because meanwhile I am miserable trying to fight off this virus!

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a planet where four gods are known: good, evil, elemental and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the land whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently for books planned. The first one is completed and currently being edited. Any news I have on about publishing will be shared as it comes in!
