It Only Takes 6...

Six-word memoirs. How would you say something of substance in only six words?

My students began working on these today and in just part of an afternoon, they came up with some amazing ones. I'll try and post some of them on Friday or next week.

But trust me, they're good.

I'm hoping some of you try writing one. (You could always leave it in the comment section.)

To give you a taste of what they're like, go here.

So don't waste any more time... write a six-word memoir now.

And if you want to see a photo of me that was taken over 40 years ago, go to my post on the Muffin.

    1. Linda--This would make a great first line of a story. Perhaps the first line of a flash fiction piece?

  4. 36 years, gone in a second.

    (Now, don't go worrying about me. It's just that you asked for my life story...:-) )

  6. It's amazing what can be packed into six words. I used to do these all the time at the Six Word Memoir website. One of my pieces went into their Love & Heartbreak book. Here it is: Neglect induced fatal condition. Heart amputated.

    No doubt written on a dark and angst-filled day. :-)

    1. Pat--Duh. I had no idea there was a website (or websites).

      Yeah, yours is quite dark. But I like dark... ;)
