Carrie tagged me for this Meme, and I’m so glad. This one took a lot more thought than I would have expected, yet was really fun. The Meme orginated over an idea that was prompted by the book written by Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser, Not Quite What I was Planning: Six Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. It’s 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 post if 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!
Not What I Imagined. Better. More.
I wish Jeff were in the picture, too. He needs to be to complete my memoir visual.
And the tagees are:
Shannon at Following Our Bliss
Casey at Quilao Triplets
Cecily, My Chaos My Bliss
Genny at My Cup 2 Yours
Robin at Around the Island
Carissa with Good and Crazy People
If you’d like to participate too, please let me know so I can check out your memoir. I loved this one enough that I wanted to tag my whole blog roll. Actually, I think I will……..I’m breaking the rules. Tag, You’re it!
