Daily Prompt: Inkling

Inkling is a wonderful word

It hints at ideas and kindling

It hints at deep emotions

I love the word

For it’s hidden depths

It’s intrigue

And it’s suspense

For when we only have an inkling

We really don’t have much of a clue.

  1. Thanks Kerry. You are so right. Not only is Inkling a wonderful word, for us authors it’s often what leads us to an idea, a new plot line, a story or … a novel. Sometimes, as you said “we really don’t have much of a clue.” We don’t even realize the inkling is there, no less where it came from. That doesn’t make it any less important though. So, thanks for giving inklings their due and reminding us of how important and unique they are.


    • Thanks for your comment. I wasn’t really thinking in terms of a story line this morning, but an inkling holds well and truly true for that too.
