I have been brainstorming on the potential setting my Kraken story might take place in. The original legends of the Kraken came from ancient Scandinavia during the Viking days. With that in mind, I toyed with the idea of having the story take place off the coast of either Norway or Sweden. Then my mind turned to the Bermuda Triangle, which is a place full of haunting mysteries. Then I thought about the Mariana Trench, which is the deepest and least explored part in the world’s oceans. There are trenches and canyons down there that are deep enough to hide Mount Everest. If there were a place where a giant sea monster would hide, it would be the Mariana Trench.
