I’m sure you’re all familiar with the 6-Word Memoir Project (started by SMITH Magazine Editor Larry Smith and inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s shortest of short stories, which said: “For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.”
After being inspired by the project, the Oprah Magazine staff asked readers to share their own 6-word memoirs on Facebook and Twitter. This month, there’s a little feature on them at Oprah.com, and upon browsing some of the memoirs this morning, I decided I wanted to create one, too. So, I grabbed the nearest scrap of paper and scribbled mine down.
Here it is (after being transferred from scrap to screen).
(It should sound familiar, as it ties in perfectly with my One Little Word for 2012.)
I suppose it’s a bit of a mantra and a memoir, but it’s the first thing that came to mind, so I went with it.
What’s yours? :)
