It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.
How about telling that story in six words Nietzsche?
Ernest Hemingway is reputed to have done it:
“For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.”
Over at Smith Magazine they take this flash fiction concept and make it more personal, “celebrating the joy of passionate, personal storytelling.”
They call it the Six Word Memoir Project.
“A sake mom, not soccer mom.”
“The miserable child leads to royalties.”
Both their book series and the Smith Mag’s site are filled with six words on a range of topics including love, inspiration and parenting. You can even instantly publish your own six word memoir on the site. I did!
“Making it up as I go.”
Tell me, what’s your story in six words?
