6-Word Memoir (Writer's Workshop)

I just finished reading Tony Danza’s book about his first year of teaching high school and one of the assignments he was advised to give was to write a 6-word memoir. As he thought of one for himself, it made me think of what mine could be. His was, “Once a fighter, now a teacher.”


When I saw this was one of the prompts for Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, I just had to do it.  My 6-word Memoir is “Living for Jesus all my days.”

Here's my husband's:  "Boston fan for better or worse."  Right now, it's worse:  Patriots lost last week, Red Sox had a terrible season, looks like the Bruins won't be playing for awhile with the strike going on.

What’s yours? It’s harder than you may think—try it and leave your 6-word memoir in a comment for us.

How wonderful that you feel so very connented to your memoir.

A six word memoir was very interesting for me to think about - I usually tend to use many words.

Very powerful and an admirable goal/life. :)
I love the six word memoir---so packed full of meaning since you have to be picky. I did one last year and another for today. I linked them both on the Writer's Workshop linky (#26 and #27).

Love this! I usually use so many words, but I loved trying to choose just 6.
