You...In Six Words

In November 2006, writer and editor of the Web publication, SMITH magazine, asked his fans to describe their lives in exactly six words. Since that time, he has received more than half a million responses.

A few of these mini-memoirs appear in the February issue of Oprah.

Seeking the fullest expression of self. Oprah Winfrey
I am definitely in my zone. Gayle King
Might as well eat that cookie. Paula Deen
Stumbling into everything, falling into grace. Martha Beck
Write, mother, sleep. Repeat as needed. Shonda Rhimes (creator of Grey's Anatomy)

When I decided to write my own six-word memoir, I discovered just how challenging that can be.

Enjoying the process of reinventing myself. Joanne Guidoccio

Any other six-word memoirs out there?
