In 2011, I coordinated and participated in a daily challenge that used a randomly selected word.  It was fun, it was frustrating, and it was challenging.  I made new friends and reconnected with old ones.  I ended the year with a body of work that had both volume and quality.  I also got in the habit of posting daily and the muse learned to show up whether she wanted to or not.

Here is the list of words used in 2011:
