Memoirs Are Made Of This

Published by at 7:18 pm under Blog

Alice tagged Grannymar and she, in turn, tagged me. The task: write your memoir in six words. I remember reading that Hemmingway was challenged to write a story in six words. He wrote something painfully thought provoking: “For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.”

Now, I can’t hope to write something to make people think. So, I’m just going to go with honesty:

Sixteen years, no fun! Everything changed!

My Friends

My turn to do the tagging: Anthony, Ben, Daragh, Laura, Ken and Ross, do you want to give it a go?

The rules:

  • Write your own six word memoir.
  • Post it on your blog, including a visual illustration if you’d like.
  • Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to the original post if possible so that it can be tracked as it travels across the blogosphere.
  • Tag at least five more blogs with links;
  • and Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Update: Just found this. Worth a read!

StumbleUpon It!

  7. […] Thanks for visiting! If you like what I’m doing (or don’t!?) – Leave me a comment or two! So the smug bastard tagged me in his post. The object of which is to jot down in 6 words a memoir that suits you best. 6 words?! Don’t […]
