Read my article and learn my tips for writing six-word memoirs. Believe it or not, I had a New York Times' bestselling author tell me she couldn't write them. Many other writers have told me they think six-word memoirs are difficult. I agree. It's sometimes hard to tell a story in just six words. This very short genre forces us to be concise, which is a good trait for writers.
I hope you'll read my five tips and enter my contest. http://www.everydayfiction.com/flashfictionblog/5-tips-for-writing-six-word-memoirs/comment-page-1/#comment-31412

Writer of words. Teacher by action.
Yes, that's fine. In fact, everyone may enter one memoir in each category but I'll just choose one winner.Delete
However, this gives everyone two chances!

Interesting that four words describing you begin with a "W."Delete

This was a tough one because several of the six-word memoirs were very good and descriptive. Janet's string of six words really encapsulated HER.
Just let me know which of the six-word books you'd like and I'll get one to you. Congrats and thanks to everyone who participated.
