6 Word Autobiographies

I got tagged by Kim with this one. The concept intrigues me.

Here are the rules:
1. Write your own six word memoir
2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post
4. Tag five or more blogs with links
5. Remember to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.




I did a little research and here is the history of the idea:



Six-Word Memoirs: The Legend
Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).




So, some people have been listing 6 words that describe them and some people have been writing 6 word sentences that describe their lives.




My memoir? Little Mary Sunshine: Alive and Well





I am just gonna throw this tag out there. It's fun. It's easy. It's thought-provoking. It's a cool thing to do when your brain refuses to think an original thought.

I think your memoir and mine would be very similar, because I feel exactly the same way!!
