"the way is often found in the fewest words,.." yes! needed that this week as I wrangle with some writing. Making it much too hard. Thanks, Julie, as always... Hope to see you next Saturday in group.

Love this! I remember reading that Bass post years ago and loving the simplicity and power of the three word gospel.

One of my six word memoirs (well five): greets everyone with open hands.

I love this and will use it with my memoir class. I think my favorite sux word memoir is still Hemingway’s.

I really like. Write. Mother. Sleep. Repeat as needed. I slow love your list about your dog and vet experience.

Safe travels. Enjoy your family!

I love a prompt that contains restraints! Here are a few six word memoirs I came up with…

- Glass half empty girl. Also hopeful.

- Loyal friend. Can’t shake me. Try.

- Grumpy realist, but also delightfully optimistic!

Looking forward to writing with you again next weekend!
