Meme: The Six-Word Memoir

What can six words say about you? Chosen carefully, probably a lot.

The lovely Amy from The Sleepy Reader tagged me with such a challege, which originated here:

"As I read yet another book review of a memoir this weekend, my husband told me that I should write one. I said that my story would be much too short and rather boring so when I ran across the following book I decided it was just my speed. A six word memoir! Written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Expecting: Six Word Memoirs by Famous and Obscure is a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were- For Sale: baby shoes, never worn. There’s a video on Amazon with examples from the book, it sounds like a fun read! I’d like to start a six word memoir meme and here are the rules:

1. Write your own six word memoir

2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like

3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere

4 .Tag five more blogs with links

5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!"


"Life is short. Smile a lot." (and these guys always make me smile!)

Now for my tags. Ready, set, go.

1) Elizabeth (Raidergirl3)
2) Julie
3) Phoebe
4) Megan
5) Teddy Rose
6) anyone else who wants to be concise about his/her life
