MY SIX WORD MEMOIR

1- Christian

2- happy

3- insatiable

4- curious

5- outgoing

6-tenacious

Okay, that’s the 6 good words about me, and surprisingly, this is kind of fun!

Borrowing, with permission from bookbabie, the following fabulous idea:

What would you say if you had to summarize your life in only six words?

Bookbabie got the idea from a book written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Expecting: Six Word Memoirs by Famous and Obscure. It 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.

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 postif 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!

 Suzanne Francis tagged me for this game. Check out her blog. http://suzannefrancis.wordpress.com/ 

She’s a writer in New Zealand. Cool, huh?

I’m going to tag Marilyn,  Jaci, Dr. Tom, Kate,  and Jackie.

Suzanne says she’s going to use the 6 word memoir the next time she teaches a writing class. Not a bad idea! Since I don’t teach other people how to write (I’m still working on that for myself) I probably won’t rip off that idea. 😉
