My friend Caitlin told me about this 6-word memoir book / site. I guess Hemmingway was once asked to write an American story in six words and came up with "For Sale: Baby Shoes Never Worn".
You can submit your own 6 word memoir, read others, and submit your own at http://www.smithmag.net/sixwords/
I submitted one:
"FS: College Degree take over payments."
Yes, I know FS is shorthand for two words. Get over it.
