So have you heard of Six-Word Memoirs?
Six-Word Memoirs was born at Smith Magazine, an online storytelling publication. Taking their inspiration from a six word story by Ernest Hemingway (“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”), the magazine asked readers to come up with six word autobiographies. From this idea came a book:
Here are some of my favorite examples:
“I still make coffee for two.”
“Facebook has ruined my entire life.”
“Sperm too potent, now have triplets.”
“Nothing profound, I just sat around.”
“Naively expected logical world. Acted foolishly.”
“I can’t keep my own secrets.” [This one’s probably me.]
I was thinking, what would be a good six word description of the holiday season, or December, let’s say?
I came up with a couple (not wonderful; y’all can do better):
Rehearsals, shopping, stockings, wrapping, then peace.
Mommy, is Santa real? Um, uh…
Tall white candles illuminating stained glass.
Okay, your turn! Tell me your six-word December.
