Six Word Memoirs Actually Say A Lot

Since 2006, Smith Magazine has been encouraging readers to submit memoirs told in six words. Some folks who’ve told theirs are famous while others are total unknowns, but together the result is fascinating and strangely poignant. The first book contains almost 1,000 memoirs and is called Not Quite What I was Planning: Six Word Memoirs from Writers Famous and Obscure and the second is titled Six-Word Memoirs on Love & Heartbreak. It’s only 8$ on Amazon. What would your 6-word memoir say?
