Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story using just six words. No one thought he could do it. Here's what he wrote:
Wow, is that guy amazing or what? So, Smith Magazine has taken that story and turned it into a really cool challenge for us all. Can you summarize your life in six words? Here are some examples that made it into their Six Word Memoir Book:
I still make coffee for two.
Fork in road. Took left turn.
Not quite what I was planning.
It all changed in an instant.
Cursed with cancer. Blessed with friends.
Seventy years. Few tears. Hairy ears.
Born in the desert. Still thirsty.
Almost a victim of my family.
So, here's your challenge -- can you write your own memoir in six words? If so, share it here.
