I’ve had a tab on my browser open to Reverb10 for over a week now without making the time to post about it, but I have been mulling over some of the questions it’s posed. Described as “an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next,” the site posts a prompt and/or question every day in December. I’m not going to do all of them — some lead to answers that are more personal than I’m willing to post in public, some ideas need more time to crystallize, some are redundant (what have I made recently? welcome to my blog about things I make!) — but there are a lot of interesting, relevant ones I’ll be sprinkling throughout the rest of the month.

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?

2010: Stage-setting. It’s been an interesting year. I cut some ties, strengthened others, clarified goals, made headway on some, let others fall to the wayside. But mostly I feel like I spent the year getting my ducks in a row, rather than actually doing whatever it is one wants to do with a row of ducks. Not in a bad way, just in a they’re-going-to-wander-off-again-if-we-don’t-get-the-chorus-line-started kind of way.

2011: Focus. I can balance the different endeavors I want to be working on; I just need to do it.
