It's--Funday-MondayIn six words, can you write your memoir?
I heard in this Sunday's Sermon that Ernest Hemingway was asked to prove his writing skills by creating a short story in six words. He wrote: "For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn." The congregation as a whole gasped with the power of the "story." Other examples:
- I still make coffee for two. (From an 88 year-old man who lost his wife two years previously)
- Revenge is living well without you. (Joyce Carol Oates)
- Not quite what I was planning. (unknown)
- If it looks good, eat it. (Andrew Zimmern, Bizarre Foods)
- Living is Christ, dying is gain. (St. Paul)
Dreams come true through due diligence.
Or--God answers prayer--Neil is proof. (But then, that's could be considered 12 words because I gave two examples!)
Or-- Shoot it, scrap it, share it.
Can you share with me, in six words, your memoir?
