One Little Word 2022 – FOCUS

I learned about One Little Word at many years ago as I found writing inspiration at Two Writing Teachers ( In 2022, I want to get back to the basics with my writing and there’s no better way to start. My #OLW2022 is FOCUS.

What is One Little Word®? (From the website)

In 2006 I began a tradition of choosing one word for myself each January—a word to focus on, to live with, to investigate, to write about, to craft with, and to reflect upon as I go about my daily life. These words have each become a part of my life in one way or another—a process I document via simple creative monthly prompts from January to December.

You’re invited to join me in choosing your own One Little Word®.

Why FOCUS? Well, as you know, 2020 and 2021 were unusual years, to say the least. During the pandemic, I read less, wrote less, and worried more. My life was in chaos; my mind was not right. Well, that changes…today! It’s a new year and it’s time for me to FOCUS on little changes that will help me to achieve my reading and writing (and living) goals. It is the perfect word for 2022.
