My 6 Word Memoir

Thanks for your beautiful comments from the previous post. You are so wonderful.

I participated in  Six Word Memoir Postcard swap on Swap-bot. It was fun and challenging and I enjoyed reading other people's six word memoirs. 


These are the postcards I sent. 


My memoir that I wrote on each one. This was my memoir for now. 


These were the postcards I received. It's funny because I sent out a Fearless one exactly like that on another swap. 




It was fascinating to read what their 6 word memoir would be. I was thinking about doing this as the next swap for the snail mail group (it appears that The Happy Mail Project could be it's name). What do you think about this?

Oh this sounded like a really fun swap. I like the idea of swapping little things as I am a bit over not receiving anything back in big swaps.I think it would be a great idea for your mail group,love it! I owe you a letter too :-)

What a cool concept! I've been burned by some swaps...but that definitely looks like a cool one!

That's so beautiful.. and it sounds pretty fun. I feel inspired and encouraged just by reading what you and other people are saying in just... 6 words. And it's kind of like revealing a piece of yourself. :)

I love it, although the idea of coming up with just six words intimidates me! I think I'm putting too much pressure on myself to do it perfectly. Yours (what you sent and what you received) are great.

Such a great idea! I'd have to really think about what I'd write for my six word memoir.
