Short and Sweet Memoirs

Six Little Words

Inspiration can be found through Hemingway.

A few words can convey volumes…

You can write a mini-memoir or tell a tale of love in as few as six words. Ernest Hemingway did it best, and now you can do it too.

Larry Smith author of "Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak: By Writers Famous and Obscure" has also created a place for you to be as creative as Hemingway and post your own six-word memoir on smithmag.net.

Learn more about journals and memoirs here, with Abigail Thomas, at AARP The Magazine.

Or watch this segment with Abigail from AARP's "My Generation" TV show.

And, coming next month... AARP The Magazine will offer you a chance to publish your own six word memoirs. Watch for it in the mail; and we'll link from here to details!
