Six Word Memoirs

Traveled the world. Motherhood best adventure.

Me, stress? It's my middle name.

Increasing patience level is extremely difficult.

Life. One mess after another. Literally.

It doesn't get better than this.

Anxiously anticipating this time next year.

Constant state of missing someone dear.

Another day, another carton of milk.

Thinking of the end and smiling.

Thank you for loving me, Todd.

I'm still a work in progress.

This post was written for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop, Prompt 1.) Six Word Memoir: Write about a significant time in your life in just six words. Of course I couldn't just have one...

Hey Tonya...
GREAT post :)
You, like me, seem to be the type who id daunted by having to limit yourself to six words.
I completely avoided the task - YOU however... YOU made it your own and nailed it :)

Love how you used a bunch of six-word lines to tell the story succintly, yet kept to the structure.
Also did you realise... your post signature?
"The Best is yet to Come."

There's a profound memoir for ya.

Glad you have the name/URL option - there's a bunch of blogs I've visted where I can't comment because of Blogger still malfunction on the sign in. So YAY! Love it.

I am shocked daily that we need more milk AGAIN!

The milk one made me laugh because my friend Karl drinks that much himself!

Fantastic job with this prompt, Tonya! My favourite: "I'm a work in progress." I need to share some of these with my Twittery friends - tweeting this!

They're all lovely! This is the one I can relate to: "Constant state of missing someone dear."

These were so good. I saw 6 word and thought HUH? LOL

These are so good! I have one of these drafted, but my blogger is messed up (imagine that???) and I can't post the sucker. I really enjoyed "Thinking of the end and smiling." "Anxiously awaiting this time next year." "Thank you for loving me, Todd." It's amazing the impact you can have with just six words.

I love these but got choked up at a few (of course). Perfect post Tonya.

June 2, 2011 at 7:10 PM  
Blogger Jessica said...

I can't believe you came up with more than 1 for this prompt. I couldn't even get one. My favorite was the one about life is one mess after another. So true.

I love how you used more than 1. It was hard enough for me to come up with just 1. "Thank you for loving me, Todd" My favorite!

I read a bunch of these this week and yours was my fave. :)

You cheated! That's definitely more than 6 words! Haha! Great sentances though- they all fit you to a T! : ) XOXO
