Reflect & Manifest in December. (reverb11!)

Via on Nov 30, 2011

Reverb is a means of reflection on the year that has passed and looking forward to the coming year. It provides us with an opportunity to celebrate life and mourn losses together.

“Reverb11″ is a month-long daily writing practice with prompts for each day in December. I participated last year thanks to my writing coach, Jeffrey Davis. About 1,000 writers “reverbed” when blogger Gwen Bell created the Reverb project in December 2009. Over 6,000 participated last year.

I’ll offer 31 prompts for the next month. Each of those prompts will be posted right here on Elephant Journal, on my blog Yoga Freedom — and hopefully on many other blogs as well! — starting mañana, December 1st.

Join in! You don’t have to write a novel, or even a poem. There are no rules about word count. Challenge yourself to publish on the topic each day. Post your link in the comments section. (You can shorten it using bit.ly for ease of sharing on social networks). Use the hash tag #reverb11 if you’re on Twitter.

The key is to support one another through sharing, and commenting on, the writing.

This is where the Elephant Yoga Community comes in handy. (More details on both of those as the month progresses…) Stay tuned throughout the month for each daily prompt, as well as lots of great inspiration from the community that we create.

Below are some buttons you can use to share with your readers that you are Reverbing in 2011!
