Tell Your Story in Six Words

Ernest Hemmingway was once asked to tell a story in six words. Almost immediately, he returned with "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

Could you write a story with six words? Tell your life story in six words? For more information or to submit an official six word memoir, visit Six-Word Memoirs at SMITH Magazine. If you are not submitting to the site, please leave your six-word stories in a comment.

Here are a few of mine to get you started:

Raised in the 1960s. Still kicking.

Celebrate, laugh, live long and prosper.

Drinking and driving too fast. Buried today.

OK, this isn't six words, but it does more or less tell my story:

It can be argued that the past is as uncertain as the future; Heisenberg tells us that we cannot be sure of the present. I think therefore I am.

Here's mine:

"Always happy though I'm facing problems."

What do you think of it?
