RTW: The Story of Me (In 6 Words!)

Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on their own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.

This week’s topic: Your six-word memoir. Literally, your life story in six words.

Whew! This was way hard!Β  Mine ended up being more of a statement of who I am today. Honestly, my first effort was this: Loving mother, wife, writer, music fan. I tried to snazz it up a bit. Seven words would have been *so* much easier. πŸ™‚Β Regardless, here’s what I ended up with:

Matriarch, lover of literature, Nashville harmonies.

Can’t wait to read all the others!

  1. Nice! I still have to do mine!!! Eek!

  2. Nashville harmonies FTW!

  3. Really well written… I can really get who you are from your statement.
    Kudos πŸ™‚

  4. I love country music! It basically tells the story of our lives, so I can appreciate including this. Love it!

  5. Awesome. Agree with you on the seven words, hehe – of course, then we’d be begging for eight! I like both versions – simple and snazzy. πŸ™‚

  6. Yep, Nashville harmonies is great! πŸ™‚

  7. So much story in those six words. This is great!

  8. “Matriarch” say so much in so little. It’s perfect.

  9. Very nice! Matriarch is one of my favorite words. So much power, love, gentleness, service and reward in that word.

  10. Love it! This has been such a fun road trip to read. I admit I’m not game to try it myself!

    Now, I’m nursing a cold and a fair bit of medication here, but your blog header and photo changed, right? Is it the winter setting? I love it!

    • Yep, I winterized! Thanks for noticing πŸ™‚ The colorful dahlias and summer outfit in my photo made me miss summer too much, so it was time for a change.
