When Hemingway famously wrote, "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn," he proved that an entire story can be told using a half dozen words.
When the online storytelling magazine SMITH asked readers to submit six-word memoirs, they proved a whole, real life can be told this way too. The results were fascinating, hilarious, shocking, and moving.
Leave your 6-word memoirs in the comments and I'll name a winner by February 14th.
And I'll post your memoirs right here on my blog!
Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, the memoirs from Smith magazine have been collected in Not Quite What I Was Planning available from Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
