Six-Word Memoir

I've been tagged! Precie has tagged me with "Six-Word Memoir" meme.

According to Precie, legend has it that Earnest Hemingway once entered a bet to write a short story in six words. By now, it must hold the world record for Story Most Often Quoted in Its Entirety.

Hemingway's story: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

A six-word memoir, though. Hmm. The story of my life.

The meme 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 who tagged you in your post.

4. Tag five more blogs with links.

5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play!

Aerin's six-word memoir:

girl by birth; woman by choice

Aerin tags the following friends with the six-word memoir meme:

(to be announced. I haven't yet had time to sit down and name people and then tag them)

And, stealing from Precie, just for added six-word fun:

In case you're interested, this Wired article (November 2006) lists six-word stories (not autobiographies, mind you, but fantastic micro stories worth reading) from the likes of Margaret Atwood, Gregory Maguire, William Shatner and many more.


  1. I played this a couple of days ago on someone else's blog - but can't for the life of me remember where!
