Our love for Six Word Memoirs is known. We weren’t sure how they’d take it to the next level, but they just did. Things Don’t Have to be Complicated: Illustrated Six-Word Memoirs by Students Making Sense of the World (Ted Books) contains illustrated memoirs created by students from grade school to grad school. Also: it’s an ebook that costs $2.99. That’s less than a latte, my friends.
If you’re not convinced at the utter coolness of this book by seeing the work of Nina Yao, 13 (pictured), check out this Washington Post slideshowof a few more featured memoirs. We dare you not to be impressed and inspired. One of the greatest things about this format is that anyone — from Shakespeare types to a kindergarten class — can write a memoir. Add an illustration and, boom, even better.
So snag the ebook for a three-spot, click through and, if you’re so inclined, write and post your own six-word memoir (or 12. I seriously just sat here and thought of 12. So fun!). Today, ours is: “Giving love to Six Word Memoirs!”
