I love the quote I shared yesterday, and it is true in one sense--we do make choices in life, and what we choose often doesn't measure up to what we planned. In fact, I feel that way every time I finish a book and mentally compare it to what I had envisioned at the start.
Okay, so you probably know I'm going to ask--can you condense your life up to this point into six words? Mine would be: "Discovered pen isn't in my hand."
I asked some writing friends to play the game, and they came up with some hilarious--and moving--six word memoirs. Here's a sampling:
