Road Trip Wednesday #57: Your Six-Word Memoir

from We The Robots
Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors  post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our  own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get  everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to  participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link in  the comments - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.




This Week's Topic:
Write Your Six-Word Memoir (inspired by I Can't Keep My Own Secrets)


Kristin: Do you realize how many pithy and relatable...

Emilia: Okay, so while my go-to birthday wish is for this memoir to be literal...

Amanda: We always hear it when we'd rather not . . .

Kate: I could always go cheap and use song lyrics...

Lee: Short and sweet is what it's about...


Next week's topic: 
TBD

  16. Ooooh, this was hard. I had to sit on my hands not to write 10 different versions. Which wouldn't really count as six words, now would it?? Find it here

  23. Loved this one! Not as tough as I'd thought. Kind of just came to me--but isn't that the way it goes sometimes in writing? Here's my contribution.
