Fecund and Fruitful

Today’s #reverb10 Prompt: 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?


I am a writer.

It’s taken me a long, long time to own this one.

Yesterday, I had an email exchange with one of my mastermind buddies. In the last email from her, she remarked that she hadn’t noticed that I now sign my emails:

Transformational Coach
Creativity Catalyst

She asked when I started this. I replied that I didn’t remember, but that at some point during this year, I claimed it.

Word for 2011?


may my words be fecund and fruitful.

  1. “silence”

    This is the year that I discovered where everything “is”. Music, love, God,…”all”.
    “All” waits in the silence to be recognized. Reunion!

    Love is the deep, empty bowl of “no-thing” we receive and offer to ourselves in the same now of every breath.

    A sweet year. Hard to top! 😉


  2. Think you’ve prompted my next blog post… it will have to marinate a bit and I will have to find some time to sit and put the words down… but I know the direction I’m going.

    I’d have to say 2010’s word is TRANSFORMATION. It’s been a year of intense changes, of stepping into myself and my life in ways I wouldn’t have thought were possible this time last year.

    And 2011 is going to be about DEPTH and/or COMMUNITY. Not sure how those things are going to manifest, but there are some visions flitting around the periphery.

    I have to tell you how glad I am you claimed your 2010 word. It’s a powerful thing to own that for yourself – and I’m always dumbstruck by those who are so obviously writers to me who don’t see themselves that way at all. Wear it proudly Julie, it suits you. And oh my… I cannot wait to see what 2011 holds for you (to share with all of us) with a word like FECUND as your word.

  3. How delightful to discover your words this morning, beloved Julie. Ahhh, deep breath of fruitfulness. I am seeing a cornucopia of words, flowing colorfully and soooo scrumptious.

    THANK YOU for claiming “Writer”….

  4. “may my words be fecund and fruitful.” well now, darlin’, using my most creative imagination, i can’t see your words being anything but fecund and fruitful. let’s just make sure they’re spilled on the page regularly so that fruit doesn’t spoil;) love.

  5. I have known that you are a writer since I first visited this blog. I second Julie Jordan Scott’s gratitude for your writer-ness, and add wishes for fecundity that will bless all the world. xoxo

  6. How strange: All this time I have seen you as a writer. How interesting the way our gifts emerge, often, to others, before we ourselves have noticed the way that they’ve oozed out and through us into the world. You are and have always been a writer. How wonderful to read this, to witness the claiming of a destiny.

  7. I was blessed to get to know you a bit in the latter half of 2010 ~ and perhaps you’d already claimed Writer by then, because like Amy stated ~ that’s how I perceived you … 2nd.

    My first perception of you was/is: Earth Goddess. Which actually flows naturally into your 2011 desire ~ natural, abundant, fruitful.

    Sorry ~ I just can’t get my mind around Fecund. I had to look it up to see an actual definition of it ~ it sounds so harsh and abrupt somehow. That’s my ignorance speaking of course – because it actually speaks to exactly what you’re aiming for.

    I’m behind you all the way!!
