Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in six words. Papa came back swinging with "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." Some say it as his best work; other dismiss the anecdote as a literary folk tale. Either way, the six-word memoir was born, celebrating personal storytelling using exactly six words.
Here are a few of mine:
"Tightrope walking gets easier with practice."
"Vicariously living my husband's American Dream."
"I have indeed become my mother."
"Although sometime weary, I still write."
