Six Word Memoirs

 

memoir in 6

 

I once took…

a creative non-fiction

writing class.

One of the assignments was to write a somewhat meaningful “memoir” in only six words.

Six.
Not more.
Not less.

Of course, you can’t pack many years into six words, but you can show a moment, or a general idea that covers a longer time span. I wrote a few of those tiny memoirs.

I thought of them tonight because the 4th memoir below blasted in my face.
Again.

 

Here they are:

 

=>  One child; many ways to worry

=>   Mothering trip: highs, lows and love

=>  Single parenting: double worries, double love

=>   Parenting a teenager: flowers and bombs

=>  Travelling: new setting for daily sunset

=>   Around the world trip: unconfirmed expectations.

If you would like to give it a try and if you don’t mind sharing your creation(s), why don’t you drop your mini-memoir into the comment box below? 🙂
