And we'll never be the same.

And we wouldn't want it any other way.  :)

Your Six-Word Memoir
« Reply #55 on: March 16, 2008, 01:32:53 am »

There's a new book out titled, "Not Quite What I Was Planning - Six-Word Memoirs by Famous and Obscure Writers." It's published by Harper Perennial.

Here's the review from today's Sunday Telegraph:

If you had to sum up your whole life in six words, how would you do it? The editors of online magazine, Smith, came up with a competition after hearing that Hemingway once wrote a novel in six words: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

Thousands of entries followed, and the results here are by turns hilarious, perplexing, poignant, and straight-out strange.

They encompass tones of bitterness ("After Harvard, had baby with crackhead"), anger ("Mom died, Dad screwed us over"), joy ("She kissed me and said yes!") and poignancy ("Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends").


My challenge to you, is for you to write your own six-word memoir and post it here.

To make a start, here's mine:

Blissfully meditative incarnate pagan gay artist.

That's awesome and fun Kerry! I was first introduced to this concept a few weeks ago (http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php/topic,17608.50.html) where some have been writing mostly BBM-themed, six-word memoirs. I haven't yet come up with one for myself, but it has been great to read others' clever and insightful stories. Guess I'll have to give it a try!

Ok, I came back to give this a try, how about:

40: Where did my life go?   :laugh:

Haha! Life begins  at 40, Chris!  :D

I'm thinking I might ask David to delete this thread, seeing it already exists elsewhere.  :-\  Should I?  ???

Merging sounds good - this is such a fun topic that I've thoroughly enjoyed.

Yay for the merge! (I moved my previous post):
