Six Word Memoir

Rjurik Davidson pointed out a competition by SMITH online to tell your memoir in six words. A riff on the Hemingway story, but I thought I'd give it a go:

Broke, again. Art? Yes. Career? Pass.


Heh.

But, really, it's not a whole life. I think it would be kind of depressing if you could sum up your life in six words. At any rate, give it a go.

Nothing can improve on Hemingway's original:

"Baby shoes, worn as contraception. FAIL"
