Shelley offers these tips for spontaneously choosing your word:
- Ask the question, "What word do I want to live into in 2017?"
- Intuitively choose a magazine.
- Flip through until you find a word that surprises or delights you, and cut it out.
- Research and contemplate what your word means to you.
- Create a collage to celebrate and illustrate your word.
