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 ...

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.

I'm just getting ready in case anyone decides on a worst blog pun ever, Linda. Reckon I'd be in with a chance.

Patsy said...

I'm not that clever, Rachel - I was playing red.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Sarah. Glad someone appreciates it!
