Can you sum up your entire existence in just six words? This is the aim of the six-word memoir. I might need six words for each decade I’ve lived.
On a related note (related to concision), I have caught community college students playing a variation on name that tune where one student offers a word or two description of a professor and the other “contestants” shout out names.
I was horrified to think I could be summarized in two words and even more horrified when they wouldn’t tell me which two they were.
