“Chained by hate, liberated by love”—The Best Six-Word Memoirs of the Week
Friday, November 19th, 2010
By Larry Smith
This week, the nation went Harry Potter crazy (as usual) on the big screen, and Sarah Palin welcomed Americans to her Alaska on the little one. The universe may appear to be contracting, but our Six-Word Memoir world keeps expanding. Here are six six-worders we love from the week ending November 12. Click on each author’s name to check out more memoirs.
Most Miraculous: “After eight miscarriages, mom had me.’”—Angel Zapata
Most Nostalgic: “Miss ice cream shop soda fountains.” —Skyrocket Jones
Most Tragically Meta: “Photoshop makes my faults go away.” —Forever Rain,
Most inspirational: “Training wheels still on at sixty.”—Shiff
Most Poignant: “Chained by hate, liberated by love.” —AntiConformity 16
(profile image, above), from our new six-word project, Six Words on Pain & Hope, with the nonprofit, To Write Love on Her Arms
Six Words We Didn’t See Coming:
“Pushing, pulling. It hurts. Be still.” —Six Words from the Vagina Haiku blog, which describes itself as “A Pelvic Pain Memoir. My journey through pelvic pain told in essays, six-word memoir, and haiku.”
