    2. A lot of these are clever, occasionally one may move or surprise you still, they are the literary equivalent of popcorn small and salty, hard to stop consuming, but alas unsatisfying The form, supposedly invented by Hemingway baby shoes for sale never worn is designed to sum up a novel or a memoir in a half dozen words Sure, it s a great high school creative writing assignment, and it would make a really good St Valentine s Day gift too, but six words just ain t enough to get anything real good [...]

A word is worth one coin, silence is worth two The Talmud I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have the time Blaise PascalI read this thanks to Bill Kerwin s review In this book the editors of Smith Magazine collect six word memoirs that challenge authors to be creative and succinct Once Ernest Hemingway was asked if he could write a story in six words, and he wrote, For Sale Baby shoes, never worn That s the basic idea of narrative compression.But the memoirs here are not narrat [...]

    4. It took me maybe 30 40 minutes to read through this book, giggling a bit, wincing a bit, stopping for a brief moment to ponder the story behind the simple 6 words each author offered The emotion love, joy, pain, betrayal, boredom, frustration, confusion, devotion, and that can be conveyed in 6 words is astounding I am in awe This is a fascinating project of Smith Magazine s that I hope lives long it s too interesting to give up on.I, of course, had to come up with my own though it seems like so [...]

    11. This is an anthology collection of six word memoirs that focus on the topic of sex, love and relationships This is obviously a very quick but contemplative read and because it can be picked up and put down a lot it would be great to read on the commute I found it amazing how each story evoked so much given the economy of language the writers were given to work with Although this only took me minutes to read I feel like I am going to be re reading this book often I feel like the best way to recom [...]

    12. Creative expression within stricture is always interesting, and playing off the famous Hemingway six word story is ripe for possibility It s than a bit disappointing though, frankly, not at all surprising that in general the submissions devoted to heartbreak are numerous, diverse, and distinct than those about love I might have preferred separate sections for the writers famous vs and obscure, but I also see value in the blending A sampling I thought we had time Joe Hill He sees the me I do [...]

    13. This is such a great concept the simplicity and power of our language and, in particular, the written word It can lead to so many thoughts and emotions I appreciated the explanation at the beginning about the start of the six word memoir concept and found some of the memoirs on love and heartbreak to be truly profound, amusing, or intriguing There is almost no way to read through this short book and not find at least one you can relate to I am interested in reading the original collection.

    17. I find books like this interesting, in the sense that I d prefer to pick them up at random and flick through them now and again I like brevity in things I m reading it gives my imagination to do So in that sense, very interesting.Some of these are heartbreaking, some make me smile, and some are just infuriating.

    20. Picked this up at my library while I was shelving and brought it home so I wouldn t be reading it at my desk The concept is to use only six words to sum up how one feels about life or in this case, love and heartbreak It felt very voyeuristic but these short statements are very revealing.

    25. Some of these made me laugh, some of these made my heart drop, and some of them made me put my phone down and think about the meaning bubbling underneath those six words I even found a few that I could relate to my ex boyfriend, but importantly, the man who is my boyfriend now.There were definitely some in there that I either didn t like or thought they were just okay, but overall it s absolutely worth reading.

So I got an email saying that my six word memoir on love was going to be in this book I was surprised, but it made me swell up inside a bit.They sent me the book and a few odds and ends stickers, coasters, etcIt is a slight irreverent book But the simplicity of the concept and the selected memoirs raises it above where it might have ended up It reads in about 20 minutes So it did not take me long to peruse for my entry.Only, I could not find it.So I went through it again, only reading the names [...]
