In honor of Shark Week, we’re showcasing Six-Word Memoirs that are as tumultuous as a summer swim in the ocean. Coping with visible and internal obstacles, these writers have managed to survive and emerge with all limbs (and six words!) in tact.
Best Internal Rhyme: “City streets made a concrete girl.” - Wench, with the most commented memoir of the week.
Most Prescriptive: “Need moral Viagra to stiffen resolve.” - Hieronimo
Most Treacherous Waters: “Middle school. Every week’s shark week.” - L2L3
Best New Programming: “Having an episode. No, a season.” - GraphixGoddess, (profile image above).
Loveliest Metaphor: “Feeling invisible. Everyone runs into me.” - maryjane31
Most Practical Self-Help: “Options: Get bitter or get better.” - smallsaddenedsearching, from SMITHteens
And a bonus seventh one for this week…
Most Interesting Debut: “Vb uVm qQqpm Mp buvp fouz.” - treehugger, with a backstory that serves as an excellent decoder.
