Say It All in Six Words!
Are you as good as Papa? Legend has it that Hemingway wrote this memorable six-word memoir:
"For Sale: baby shoes, never worn."
Can you capture your own real-life stories in six words (no more, no less)?
To join NCReview’s Six-Word Memoir Challenge all you have to do is sign in and post your memoir below in the User Review space. You will need to give yourself a rating - don't be shy!
Prizes will be awarded for the top five memoirs that receive the most reader votes, and it's fine to cheat liberally by inviting your friends to come and vote for you!
While you're browsing, add your "like" votes to other entries. Come on, be generous - you're earning good karma.
The contest closes at midnight, March 31st. Have fun!
Here are some six-word memoir examples to get your creative juices flowing:
“Not Quite What I Was Planning”
“It All Changed In An Instant.”
“I Can’t Keep My Own Secrets.”
(These three became titles of six-word memoir collections.)
“This aging process is getting old.”
“I repeat mistakes to make sure.”
“Getting older. Need to dream faster.”
“I can’t find my hidden agendas.”
And from yours truly:
“Still writing my life: final draft.”
“Losing my mind – finding my voice.”
“Breathe, Relax, Repeat. Breathe, Relax, Repeat.”
