The "six word memoir" is a relatively new literary development. Its origins can be traced to Ernest Hemingway, who is rumored to have been challenged to write a story in six words. His now-famous response is considered by some to be among his greatest works: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
Since then the genre of the six word memoir has developed. Its objective is to distill a life story or series of events into six words. Think of a haiku in a straight jacket, confined in a breadbox.
