“Writing brings me back to me.” The Best Six-Word-Memoirs of the Week

Friday, July 20th, 2012

By Lucy Tiven

From Hamlet’s famous opening line, to the answer of a simple knock-knock joke, it seems we are always asking or being asked: “Who’s there?” This week’s featured Six-Word Memoirs evoke a strong sense of identity and its importance.

Proudest: “Short. Black. Christian. Gay. Walking tall.” - Clay Rivers
Simplest Truth: “Writing brings me back to me.” - Stephanie Tor
Biggest Self-Exploration: “Sumo wrestling’s checked off bucket list.” - marymc
Most Sensible Decor: “All my rooms are panic rooms.” - hieronimo
Best/Breast Improvement: “New bra gives me super powers.” - lovelylizard
Most Figural Honesty: “Curvy women, stick figures. I’m in-between.” - lovin.the.sun, from SMITHteens

Plus: Don’t forget to spread the word about SMITH’s call for submissions of illustrated Six-Word-Memoirs by students of all ages, a new eBook with the TED conference’s new book division!

    I never understood those people who like writing, for me, it was always an issue even to write a college essay, that’s why I always use writing services` help. To find a good service, it is useful to read reviews on Writing Judge, there is a good list of true and fresh reviews, based on customers` experience. These reviews helped me a lot.
