I was on the To Write Love on Her Arms street team website, and I stumbled across something amazing. It's called the "Six Word Memoir." You can learn more about them at www.smithmag.net/sixwords/
I decided to challenge myself to write a few (partly for my own benefit and partly to complete one of the orders on the street team website). But honestly, it was mostly for myself. I've only written three so far, and they're all about hope and pain (since that was the topic for TWHOHA). They're not that great, but I'm happy with them, and I truly do feel that they are a memoir (in six words, of course).
Here they are:
1) My pain has made me stronger.
2) My suffering won't determine my future.
3) I have hope I will survive.
