6 Word Memoir Meme

Well, I just got tagged by the lovely Trish  to write a 6 word memoir of my life.  The original meme came from Bookbabie.  Here is Bookbabie’s post:    

As I read yet another book review of a memoir this weekend, my husband told me that I should write one. I said that my story would be much too short and rather boring so when I ran across the following book I decided it was just my speed. A six word memoir! Written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Expecting: Six Word Memoirs by Famous and Obscure is a compilation based on the story that Hemingway once bet ten dollars that he could sum up his life in six words. His words were- For Sale: baby shoes, never worn. There’s a video on Amazon with examples from the book, it sounds like a fun read! I’d like to start a six word memoir meme and here are the rules:
     1. Write your own six word memoir

     2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like

     3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere

     4 .Tag five more blogs with links

     5. And don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play! 

Okay, so here is my memoir.  This was tough! 

Life is a macrocosm; live large! 

Here are the folks I’m choosing for the meme.  They all write excellent blogs.







  1. I’ve been reading about this all over the internet! What a clever idea!

    Thanks for the tag 🙂 I’ll have to give this some thought…

  2. Very fun memoir, so glad you played:)

  3. Wow, this is a challenging one! I’ll try to come through with something decent.

  4. […] over at Bloody Hell, It’s a Book Barrage! — a fun blog with a fun title — has tagged me to write my own 6-word memoir. I do my best writing in the car and the shower, which is why so little of it actually makes it to […]
