Reverb 10

So there’s been a paucity of blog inspiration in my life of late–terrible, I know. So I thought Reverb 10, as suggested by the wonderous Book Madam, would be a good jumpstart for me. Actually, this is just a test run, becauseI feel like this is one of those things I get totally obsessed with or else ignore completely. We’ll see which one it turns out to be…when I either finish the month of posts or I don’t.

What Reverb is is taking the month of December to reflect on the past year and the one ahead, one prompt a day, to be answered in public, blog/tweet/photo format.

Here’s today’s prompt:

December 1 One Word.
Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?
(Author: Gwen Bell)

In 2010, from January 1 to now, I’ve been living in one place, working at one job, writing one book, and in love with one person. Unlike a few years of my life where nothing seemed to change and the word “stagnate” came to mind (2004, I’m looking at you), this year felt really strong and productive, as if I were laying foundations for all kinds of future good things. My word for 2010 is solid.

In 2011, I’ll probably move, and in doing so, move to a different phase of my life (I’ve lived at the Rose-coloured Ranch since May 2003). Also next year, *The Big Dream* will almost certainly be published, and people I didn’t handpick will be able to read it!! Even scarier, I’ll start work on a new book. I’d like to make my 2011 word adventure–to keep me from thinking of other, more cowardly words to cover all this new stuff!

What are your words?

    If I had to pick a word for 2010 I guess I would choose Waldeinsamkiet (the feeling of being alone in the woods).

    2011? I guess it would be tie between Taarradhin “a way of resolving a problem without anyone losing face”(ie. everyone wins).or Meraki “to do something with soul, creativity, or love”

    Exciting to see the new book Becky!

    That pretty much sums up how “adventure” is always used in our household. Well, when we’re not playing D&D.

    Hmm, Reverb 10 seems interesting.
