Six Word Memoir
When Hemingway famously wrote, “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn,” he proved that an entire story can be told using only six words. His half a dozen word story has, decades later, inspired the six word memoir phenomenon that has people from all around the world summarizing their life experiences in just a few words.
Belo’s six-word memoir is:
“Be good, or good at it.”
