I am borrowing a book from my coworker and it is amazing! It is a bunch of 6 word memoirs written by "famous and obscure" writers. The history behind the 6 word memoir, according the the editor, is Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in 6 words. His story:
"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
WOW! That is one POWERFUL story.
Since then other authors have taken the challenge, and their stories are pretty durn good too.
It is not a book that needs to be read from beginning to end, so I will sample it for a few days and possibly share some interesting or enjoyable ones...
So far I have liked:
"Inside suburban mom, beats urban heart." Julie Goss
"Found true love after nine months." Jody Smith
"Can't read all the time, Bummer." Rina Bander
"Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda; a regretful life." Joe Maida
"One tooth, one cavity, life's cruel." John Bettencourt
I am sure there are many, many, more.
Learned? Brain's dead, can't think of one...
