Yesterday I was cruising around Pinterest, and did a search for “Memoir Writing.” I was surprised to find several pins about six-word memoirs. The concept is simple and self-explanatory–write your memoir in just six words. The one example I saw was a great one: “I’ll always be a middle child.”
I spent some time–admittedly not a long time, but a little while–thinking about what my six-word memoir would say. For a writer who almost always goes over the set word limit, it was a real problem. The only thing I was able to come up with was this: “Mine would have to be longer.”
How about you? What would your six-word memoir say? Share it with me in a comment.
