Six-word memoir

Ok … first I owe an apology to Knit-Write, who tagged me for this meme a few weeks ago (one could even say “last month”).

I’d seen the book of the same theory mentioned on some literary blogs I read a while back. The rules of the meme are:

  1. Write your own six-word memoir.
  2. Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
  3. Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
  4. Tag five more blogs with links.

I’ve actually been working on this for a while, especially in the few minutes before I fall asleep. (Possibly this has to do with my odd behavior last night, early in the night, when I seem to have half-awakened, awakened Mr. Cheap and beeped at him like an alarm clock.)

My rough drafts included:

  • Too perfectionistic to choose six words.
  • Red hair, brown eyes, blue Christmas.

But I’m going to go with:

  • Remember the past. Move forward. Repeat.

That’s my final answer. For today.

Now … who to task with this project … I am going to tag Stamping Through the Tulips, Fallen Woman, Mustard Seed Journal and Elements in TIme.  It’s not five, but it’s enough for now.
