Six Word Memoir


We were recently asked to attempt a “six word memoir” in the online writer’s group I belong to. The example given is attributed to Ernest Hemingway, though it may be legend not truth.

Hemingway Example: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

Here is what I came up with. “Three sons. Few words. Much noise.”

Go ahead, give it a try. Submit yours as a comment to this post.

I am the wife of a guitar-playing, worship-leading, adventure-loving husband. I am the mother of three incredible sons: two of whom recently surpassed me in height, and one of whom I am going to pretend is still my baby. I am saved by grace; a daughter of the King who was and is and is to come. *** I am a regular contributor at Today’s Christian Woman, a monthly blogger at Inspire a Fire and have freelanced for a variety of publications including Chicken Soup for the Soul and Guideposts. *** The 500 Dresses ministry that I started with my mom in 2010 is our way of answering the call to serve those in poverty.
