The idea came from a book Joe bought me for Christmas. The book is: Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous & Obscure and it was edited by Smith Magazine. The book is based on Ernest Hemingway's short story, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." The idea is to tell a story or describe your life in six words and the book is a collection of these. I'll give a couple of examples from the book jacket. "Found true love, married someone else." "After Harvard had baby with crackhead." It's interesting reading and has set me thinking in many directions so it might be worth checking out if that's your kind of thing.
I can't promise my Saturday posts will actually be just six words, but I'm going to at least base them off this idea for awhile and see how it goes. I'd love for you all to respond with your own six-word memoirs if you care to share.
Here's my start, a summary of the past 7 days:
Stressful week but we survive unscathed.
