I'm a fan of concise writing, having never forgotten Strunk & White's admonition to "omit needless words." I was intrigued recently to learn that Smith Magazine publishes "six-word memoirs," in which contributors summarize their lives in--you guessed it--six words. (Example: "So many kids call me mom.")
Meanwhile, I wonder if I could write my life story in six words. Can you? I think I'll give it a try.
P.S.: Take a look at their six-word resolutions too.
