One Little Word 2011

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I was participating in Ali Edwards One Little Word class over at Big Picture Classes.  The word that kept coming to me throughout the month of December was STORY.

Before working with any word, it’s best to have a full understanding of what the word means.  Here is how defines the word:


1 /ˈstɔri, ˈstoʊri/ [stawr-ee, stohr-ee]

noun, plural –ries, verb, –ried, –ry·ing.


1. a narrative, either true or fictitious, in prose or verse, designed to interest, amuse, or instruct the hearer or reader; tale.

2. a fictitious tale, shorter and less elaborate than a novel.

3. such narratives or tales as a branch of literature: song and story.

4. the plot or succession of incidents of a novel, poem, drama, etc.: The characterizations were good, but the story was weak.

5. a narration of an incident or a series of events or an example of these that is or may be narrated, as an anecdote, joke, etc.

6. a narration of the events in the life of a person or the existence of a thing, or such events as a subject for narration: the story of medicine; the story of his life.

7. a report or account of a matter; statement or allegation: The story goes that he rejected the offer.

Here are some of the ways the word Story spoke to me:

  • Learning lots of life lessons by listening to other people’s stories.
  • Writing my own STORY for 2011.  I have thought a lot about making some major life changes and I believe that now is the time to make them.
  • Capturing the stories of my family.

Looking so very forward to the stories 2011 will bring with it.

What’s your word for 2011?
