This week, SMITH’s Six-Word Memoirs went a little mental. Even before Dean6805’s Friday word of the day prompt: “slump,” something about the past few days seems to have pushed writers towards the dejected side of the narrative spectrum. If you’re feeling a bit lachrymose this Friday, know that this too will pass. Your story deserves to be heard, and you’re not alone. Whether it’s true cheer or just a foul weather friend you’re after, check out this week’s best Six-Word Memoirs (and click on any author’s name for more stories).
