Day 21 – March SOLSC #sol17
A while back I came across a post that made reference to Ernest Hemingway’s six word story: For sale: baby shoes, never worn. It made me remember the book I bought after a supervisor mentioned it at a meeting: Not Quite What I Was Planning – Six Word Memoirs, and I dug it off the shelf. However, then I forgot all about it and just rediscovered the book tonight. As I sat and flipped through the pages, I thought I’d give this six word story a try. Once I got started, I had other ideas popping into my head. It’s hard to tell a story in just six words, so I told lots of six word stories.
Wife, mom, teacher: happy, fulfilled, exhausted.
Have two brothers: Younger one’s good.
Found my soulmate in Staten Island.
God’s greatest gift – my beautiful daughter.
Only one daughter – more than enough!
Stubborn little girl makes mommy drink.
Lost my dad – heart’s still broken.
Striving to be strong, like mom.
Feeling more like a writer. Amazing!
Writing every day makes me happy.
Took the writing challenge. No regrets.
First Grade – never a dull moment.
What’s your six word story or stories? Give it a try!
