Greek Island is Named

Posted on July 26 2010 by James

A view of Symi, GreeceI woke up in the night shouting ‘Kalados’. I have no idea where that came from. I must have been dreaming about Greek Island. But somewhere from the depths of my creative sub-conscious the island has acquired a name.

Kalados it is. A remote, rather inaccessible and wholly fictional island somewhere in the Dodecanese. Of course, we all know that Symi is the inspiration.

Kalados is a lot less developed than Symi. In fact, I think that Kalados is suffering from a distinct lack of tourism. Maybe it was once a very prosperous island with lots of fishing, ship building and sponge diving.

Of course, Kalados will have a long an interesting history, but it’s only been a Greek island for the last 65 years. I suppose it must have passed to Greece around the time Menni was born. Maybe I could use that in some way.

I still need to decide whether or not Menni is going to the both the protagonist and the main character.
