This week’s Six-Word Memoirs don’t lack attitude. As you read, remember to embrace the changes that come with the fall weather with as much honest and wit as these authors.
Best Slant Rhyme: “My outsides changing, insides not engaging.” - AstonishinglyPoetic

Toughest Transition: “Gym class, as a trans-boy… Hell.” - Calliandra_Logyn, one of the most commented memoirs of the week.
