menulis Six Word Memoirs

A six word memoir is your life summed up in six words. Have you wrote one before? Post it here if you have. For those of you who haven't heard of six word memoirs, here are some examples to inspire you.

"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

"Watching quietly from every door frame."

"Born in the desert, still thirsty."

"Some cross-eyed kid, forgotten then found."

"Extremely responsible, secretly longed for spontaneity."

"Painful nerd kid, happy nerd adult."

"Like an eternal shadow, happiness followed."

"The psychic said I'd be richer."

"I asked. They answered. I wrote."

The first one is actually the 6-word novel that started it all. The story goes that someone was drinking with Ernest Hemingway in a bar, and of course Hemingway was going on about how writing doesn't need to be so bloated, that the reader can be trusted to fill in what's happening from what the author shows (so that not everything needs to be told). And one of his buddies says, "Oh yeah? I bet you can't write a novel in six words!" So Hemingway thinks for a minute and writes "For sale: baby shoes. Never worn." on a cocktail napkin. Ha! In your face, Hemingway drinking buddy!

The six-word memoir was created by Smith Magazine a few years ago as a way to get people to write about themselves in a way that emulated that Hemingway writing feat. They're a lot of fun!

Too much potential, not enough lifetime.
