"Still lost on the road less traveled."
"Followed rules. Not dreams. Never again."
"Used to add. Now I subtract."
Later the project came out with another book, "It All Changed In An Instant." Again the magazine solicited six word memoirs that could tell the story of people's lives. The collection offers a mix of both well known and obscure writers' words. A few favorites include:
"The miserable childhood leads to royalties." (Frank McCourt)
"Said I walked into wall. Lied."
Married young. Discovered dating soon afterwards."
Today I spent a chunk of the day immersed in yet another
of the Six Word Memoir projects. This is entitled "The Moment" and is fascinating and quick reading. These are short blips that tell so much, Generally, the focus is a life changing moment. The story telling is real. The moment is clear and tenable. The stories are told with humor, inspiration, poignancy, immediacy, and truth. It reminds me of the blogging community.
