This week, I decided to do Prompt 1:
Six Word Memoir: Write about a significant time in your life in just six words.
Once I started, I just couldn’t quit so I wrote six-word memoirs for a variety of times in my life. It amazed me how just six words were often enough to get to the essence of something.
Childhood: Goodie goodie loner who read constantly.
High School: Radiated awkwardness. Relieved at the end.
College: Avoided math/science at all costs.
First Serious Relationship: Fell for a voice. Got hurt.
First Job: Exaggerated skills but figured it out.
Wedding: Too many flowers. Not enough cake.
Honeymoon: Brochure was very deceiving. Rained constantly.
Marriage: Often miss forest for the trees.
Motherhood: Messier, louder, more expensive than anticipated.
Stay-At-Home Mom Years: Adjusted well but snack too much.
Housework: Nothing stays clean for long. Dammit!
Dreams: Imagined a novel. Settled for blogging.
Vacations: Were much better before child arrived.
Summertime: Always wishing we had a pool.
