6 Word Memoir

I apologize for my lack of blogging etiquette, but really....I haven't had the time!! Both Amy from The Sleepy Reader and Naida from The Bookworm tagged me for a meme. Isn't that sweet of them?? Well here it is....Finally:

The Six Word Memoir

"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!

Exhausted, Overworked, Underpaid but Loves Completely.

Well....that's just how I feel!!

Should I tag?? I'm quite sure most all of you have participated. But if not, here are a few tags:
Chris at Book-A-Rama
Bellezza at Dolce Bellezza

DesLily said...

hmmm well I have to think about this one lol..

I can surely understand the "exhausted" one!!!

Bellezza said...

How fun! I wrote a post about the six word memoir last year (I'll have to find the link), and it's so fun to apply it to one's own life! I'll try to think of a good response, and post it SOON; I, too, have been an exhausted blogger, and not nearly the visitor I want to be. Thanks for tagging me!

Bookfool said...

Thanks for tagging me, Stephanie! Someone else also tagged me for this one -- Trish, I think -- so I guess I'd better get on the ball. I'm not feeling very bloggy, this week. :)

DesLily said...

Bonnie Jacobs said...

Stephanie, would you like to link your six-word memoir on my Weekend Wordsmith blog?


Bookfool/Nancy linked hers. Take a look and leave me a comment there, if you'd like me to add you to the others who did their "memoirs."

Donna's Coexist Club met last night for the first time. I'll have to tell you about it when I get a chance.
