6 word memoirs: crafty, carefree, calming.
Wednesday, February 23, 2011
I simply love 6 word memoirs! Ernest Hemingway became one of the most notable 6-word authors when he crafted these memorable half-dozen words:
"For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn."
I started writing them a couple of years ago at a conference. At that time, I was going through a rough time and wrote this memoir in recollection of how I was feeling and what I was going through at the time: "Dad lied. The world stopped turning."
Since then, I have written several related to my teaching style and my own life.
"I picture essays flying with fire."
"Students make me smile every day."
"Motto: serve others with a smile."
"Floating in a sea of paperwork."
I love this challenge of writing one for success! Here ya go!
"Consistency leads to joy in me."
