In Six Words

Life: Chocolate outside, cyanide filling inside.

— Vinnie

Inspired by Smith magazine's Six-Word Memoirs, the (Young) Writers* have embarked on their own short-form descriptions. (As an aside — remember when memoirs were simply autobiographies? Has this form faded? Is everything now memoir?)

The six word form is instant, fun and sometimes profound. I love 'em. (My own six-word memoir graces this website's home page). Here are a few examples from a recent Thursday night writing session:

Be your self
The world is

— Tyler

I love being right, watch out.

— Siri

Heart work
Speak the truth

— Senitila

Have you penned a six-word memoir? If so, share it here!
