Yesterday I realized I hadn't decided which month January would be.Before I start talking about January, I feel like I owe y'all an explanation about what happened to #reverb10. In case you didn't notice, I stopped posting about half way through the month. If I'm being honest? The prompts started to bore me. They were … Continue reading January is off to a Late Start
I only get FIVE minutes?

Set an alarm for five minutes and capture the things you most want to remember about 2010.We all know 2010 wasn't my best year ever, but that doesn't mean I want to forget all of it. *sets the timer for five … Continue reading I only get FIVE minutes?
#reverb10 – Playing Catch Up
For anyone who hasn't heard, I was laid off last Thursday. That's kinda why I haven't been posting here the last few days, but apparently I've run that excuse dry – or I think that's what Adam has trying to tell me. 🙂 So here's some catch-up...December 10: Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you … Continue reading #reverb10 – Playing Catch Up
People Make the Party
Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. Let me just say: what a relief this prompt is! I was really worried I was going to have to be all serious and mushy-gushy for the rest of the month. And not only that, this is … Continue reading People Make the Party
Six Words, Beautifully Different
It’s been a while since I participated in YA Highway’s Road Trip Wednesday so today’s post is going to be doing double duty. Today’s prompt results in my shortest RTW answer ever, though it was also one of the hardest to answer. Basically, they want you to write your memoir. In six words. Here’s what … Continue reading Six Words, Beautifully Different
Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011?Oh man! I could write 20 pages on this, but I’ll try to spare y’all and keep it as succinct as possible.The one that’s had the biggest impact on me … Continue reading Communit(ies)
Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?I actually blogged about this not too long ago, shortly before I switched my blog here when I announced my resignation of my VP of Development position for a small non-profit. This past year I've given myself permission to take a step back … Continue reading Let Go
Moment. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).I must be feeling ornery or something the past few days because I keep wanting to defy the prompt. Every time I tried to whittle it down to a single moment, hundreds of memories … Continue reading Moment(s)
Writing. What do you do each day that doesn't contribute to your writing -- and can you eliminate it? First, I’m not a big fan of this prompt. I know most of us doing #reverb10 are writers, but there are many who aren’t. So for those who aren’t, I hope you’ll replace the word “writing” … Continue reading Everything Contributes
December is here and #reverb10 has begun. Just as a fair warning to my usual readers: my posts this month are going to be a little more me-centric than usual, due to the nature of reverb10, which is about reflecting on the past year and manifesting what’s next. I hope you’ll join me J Even … Continue reading One Word
