6 Word Memoirs


According to popular legend, Ernest Hemingway was challenged to write a story in six words. He brilliantly came up with the following, “For sale, baby shoes, never worn.” Smith Magazine took on this idea and spawned a series called 6 Word Memoirs. Six years ago, (yes, six) I stumbled on their website and submitted a couple flash memoirs of my own. I will shush now, as brevity is the soul of wit.

  • Six words? i don’t think i…
  • I think i should be happy.
  • I’ll get there; wherever that is.
  • I really shouldn’t have said that.
  • Not lost, just finding my way.
  • I really should’ve thought this through..
  • “i want to, but i can’t”.
  • Live life to give it definition.
  • Graduated, educated, but nowhere near placated.
  • How to plan for the unexpected…
  • It shouldn’t be this hard.
  • I made all the perfect mistakes
  • To every end, is a beginning.
