Adumbrate


This week's word is adumbrate. It means to foreshadow or to indicate faintly. I must try to add some adumbration to my next novel.

What? I think if you look carefully at the picture you'll find it faintly indicates four shadows ...

Moving swiftly on ... for this storytelling competition they really do want you to tell your story. You can even use funny voices if you like.

I hope to see you at my virtual book launch party tomorrow either here or over on facebook. There will be competitions with prizes! By way of adumbration I'll just say that now might be a good time to think up rhymes for aubergine, remember that time Aunty Ethel went headfirst into the begonias or to photograph any amusingly shaped vegetables you may have.

  1. A new word - lovely. Trouble is I find it difficult to incorporate new words into my old vocabulary head. I'll pop into the book launch if I may.
