Six-Word Memoirs in Words and Images

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

By Allison Keene

This week’s Six-Word Memoirs were colored by varying types of nostalgia: the yearning for childhood, the remembrance of past wrongs, and the recollection of the most beautiful parts of a relationship, even as it ends. To see all of this week’s illustrated memoirs, visit SMITH Magazine’s Facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest.

    From what I skimmed thruogh in the bookstore, Rebecca decided to have a baby with her MALE partner, not her female partner. I admit I read as far as I needed to understand what the momma drama was about. It sounds like a continuation of Alice not being the mother Rebecca wanted or needed and Rebecca is still pouting. As a parent, there are days when you want to be let out of your parenting contract and I suspect, just my own opinion here, that Rebecca is a lot of work. I declined to buy the book and will wait patiently for it from the library.A.M. Homes’ memoir, however, is something I will buy on it’s release date. With a coupon, of course.

    Notate each premise or idea and deatcdie a day or so of freewriting to each one. The exercise might stimulate your creativity or clarify what you want to spend the time working on. All of your ideas may be good but one or a comination of two or more might be more relevant at this time in your life and this time in American history.
