5 Minutes for Special Needs, a really wonderful website that offers support and insight to both people with special needs and loved ones of those with special needs, is currently running a SMITH-inspired contest for six-word memoirs and we couldn’t be happier. Winners will be announced next Friday and included in the prizes is an autographed copy of A Regular Guy: Growing Up With Autism by 5MFSN contributor Laura Shumaker.

Laura also posted some really great example six-worders to help inspire her readers…

Bite marks bleeding, play date cancelled.

“Autistic? But he looks so normal.”
