The Year or Two of Months

The Year of Months is going to become the “Year or Two of Months.” Many of y’all know what the Year of Months is, but some don’t so here’s a little refresher:

The Year of Months was a personal experience I took part in from November 2009 through October 2010. Every month, I would commit to a different personal challenge designed to broaden my horizons. For example: One month I tried a different recipe every day. Another month I walked/biked everywhere within six miles.

Since November is always NaNoWriMo for me, it automatically extended to 13 months. Now, I want to participate in #reverb10 and I still have a few other month ideas I wasn’t able to cover over the past year.

So I’m going to continue on with the months. I don’t know when I’ll stop; probably when I run out of ideas. I may even repeat some of the months that didn’t work so well. Leave a comment below if you have an idea for a month.

I’m going to create a page on this website dedicated to my Year of Months project so keep an eye out for that.



Now, I wanted to tell y’all a little bit about #reverb10 and invite you to join me. This is from their website:

“Reverb 10 is an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next… Starting December 1, check in here for daily creative prompts (some of which will be from published authors). … Respond to the prompt. In a post on your blog, through a tweet, with photography, or however else you desire. … Participate and share your reverberations using the #reverb10 hashtag (on Twitter, Delicious or Flickr).”

I hope you’ll visit their website to learn more and think about joining me. If you will be participating in #reverb10, drop me a link to your blog in the comments and I’ll link to it in my sidebar.

    Meditating is a good one. I'll put that on the list.

  3. There's already over 500 people signed up for #reverb10! I hadn't ever heard of it until today, but I just finished a "Thankfulness campaign" for the month of November which got me writing (almost) every day. I was looking for something to keep me going (NaNoWriMo is a little intimidating!) so hopefully I can commit to the full month!
