Looking for inspiration? Below are some Six-Word Memoirs that were submitted that last time we hosted this writing competition. 

  • Two dogs, feather boa, drama queen.
  • An alligator ate my crazy sister.
  • Legos, Magic, The Gathering, more Legos.
  • I was born; now I’m here.
  • I am a unicorn with cannibalism.
  • In the beginning; to be continued.
  • Caterpillar, cocoon, struggle, fly…Bird food.
