Holy moly out of controlly (yeah, totally stealing Lindsey's saying), I was so excited for the number of people who signed up for this challenge and/or posted yesterday. You guys are awesome, plus it's been fun reading your facts! Hopefully you're meeting new bloggers in the process! So now it's time for the second day of the challenge:
[Day 2]: Write a [few] six word memoir[s]
I am only going to write one, although I've been thinking about this for a while. The idea was suggested by Colette, so I'm going to let her describe it:
"Six word memoirs are exactly how it sounds: your life in six words. The history behind it is that Ernest Hemingway was asked to write a complete short story in as few words as possible. His response was, 'For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.' This then errupted into a way to tell sad, sweet, honest tales. Some examples from the book Not Quite What I Was Planning:
'The miserable childhood leads to royalties.' -Frank McCourt
'I've done it all except hear.' -Mrlee Matlin"
It may take a little while to develop, but write your own six word memoir. Here's mine, which is especially true after Chelsea's passing last week:
Life of loss, yet still loving.
I feel like I've lost two very important people to me, and yet I'm still living, loving, and remaining strong in their memories. I probably would have had a different memoir two weeks ago, but I think this one is perfect for today.
So what's yours? Can't wait to read it. Link up your six word memoir here (and yes, link up each day! The first was just a sign-up for fun!):
