My Six-Word Memoir

The popularity of the six-word memoir a la Ernest Hemingway is back with the release of Smith Magazine’s new book, Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak, a follow-up to Not Quite What I Was Planning. The idea: Your life in one sentence, six words. Here’s mine:

Learned how mighty the pen is.

I could also go with:

Never satisfied, but working on it.

Lives vivid dreams during waking hours.

I write best while on deadline.

My teenage angst never went away.

Music saved me, more than once.

I’d rather be at the beach.

  1. Following your heart rarely disappoints you.

    Happiness can’t be found in money.

    Or for fun… I want to work for Diddy. 🙂

  2. She loves me, I love her.

    Can you dig it? I can.

    I wrote, rarely cried, and laughed.

    My favorite thing was life itself.
