My Six-Word Year In Review

For as verbose as I can be on this blog, I actually embrace the freedom and creativity brought about by the restrictiveness of brevity. I'm not only an active Tweeter, but also an avid six word memoirist for SMITH Magazine, whose Six Word stories were originally inspired by the flash fiction of Hemingway.

For the second year in a row, I won SMITH's year-end contest with WNYC, and their popular local NPR radio show, "The Leonard Lopate Show."

Last year, I won for my Six Word Resolution: "End my twenty month dry spell." (A resolution I kept, by the way.)

This year, my two winning Six Words on 2010 (the only winner for two entries) were:
  • "Went from self employed to unemployed"
  • "Lost 50 pounds. Found myself underneath."
