Some months ago, a friend sent me a link to a site asking writers to submit their life story ... in exactly 6 words. Seemed like a fun challenge, and so I did it.
I later found out that Larry Smith and Rachel Fershleiser of Smith Magazine put their favorites together and published a collection called NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. Mine made the cut and can be found on page 136.
I have to say, the book is an absolute delight, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it. To celebrate, I'm doing a drawing to give away a copy, and would love to see you win. To enter, all you have to do is a post a comment to this blog entry with either:
Your guess as to which of the above memoirs is mine
If you like, you can do both. Keep in mind, this is a drawing not a contest. So your answer doesn't have to be the best or correct. Everyone who responds will be automatically entered in the drawing.
Btw, if you're cyber-challenged and have never posted a blog comment before, no worries. Just click the word "comments" (or "post a comment") below and the rest is self-explanatory. Just be sure to include your name or email address so I can contact you if you win.
