Six Word Memoirs

I was listening to NPR the other day when I was captivated by Larry Smith, editor of Smith magazine and Memoirs editor Rachel Fershleiser. The online magazine asked readers to write the story of their own lives in a single six word sentence. Borrowing from the magazine, the result is Not Quite What I Was Planning, a collection of six-word memoirs by famous and not-so-famous writers, artists and musicians.

Clicking the NPR link will take you to the interview and just maybe have you thinking about your life, insightfully summed up in only 6 words. I hope you'll share here...

Had to order the book. Damn that one click button. It happened before I could think the words budget constraints. But I can't wait to read this. I can see a game for the car trip in our near future too. Thanks for sharing.
Love you two!
