Because I’m late today, I kept it easyish. This one comes from my friend, Paul, with whom I’ll be attending a weekly writing coach meeting, but that’s neither here nor there*.
Paul’s idea is to riff on the popular six-word memoir idea captured eloquently in this book here. So just like it’s asked in the book, “Can you describe your life in six words?”
If you read the publisher’s description of the book above, you’ll see that six-word life sum-ups can be heartbreaking, silly, or motivational. Or, as the New Yorker says: “You could spend a lifetime brainstorming.”
What is your six-word memoir?
Leave your answer in the comments, or if you prefer, on your blog and leave us the link so we can spy.
Meanwhile, for any new readers, PROMPTuesday, is a once-a-week deal where I issue a creative writing prompt and hope that people take it and run. PROMPTuesday submissions appear in the comment box below the PROMPT post for all to read.

*That could totally be my life summed up in six words.
