Backstory: “Wheelchair, walker, crutches, cane, second grade.”

By Larry Smith

Today’s Six-Word Memoir of the Day, “Wheelchair, walker, crutches, cane, second grade,” comes from a SMITH contributor who goes by the named “MarchthisQ.” Via email, I learned she’s 24, works in publishing, lives in Manhattan, and first heard about the Six-Word Memoir project through Facebook. “I’m considering writing a full memoir,” she told me. Which once again is why we always like to say: your six-word memoir is the beginning of your story, not the end. In that spirit, she’s taken advantage of our recently added “backstory” feature.
