Six words or fewer.


Six-Word Memoir book preview from SMITHmag on Vimeo.

So, how about it? Write your biography in six words or fewer. Give it a try.

How about:

Made a career of my kids.

It only works for the present.

I still got nothing. That's only 4 words, but that's not it. I'm still thinking about it (5 words).

Whatever it is, it'll be spectacular. (6 words)

I've come up with this for my six word biography:

With my wife, asymptotically approaching perfection.

Kim said...

Now I have to go look up asymptotically.

LB said...

That inspired this from me:

It sounds dirty; I like that.

Burgess Laughlin said...

I made progress.

Okay. I tried to get serious, but I just can't encapsulate my life in six words or fewer. Here is what my daughters came up with:

Dancing is where I belong. K-14

I'm always singing in the rain. V-9

And me? I'm not done yet.

In fairness to me, Stephen did steal my personal three word tag line -

Asymptotically approaching perfection.

Then he added me to the mix. That just makes it harder for me to be mad at him for pilfering it. Not impossible, just harder.
