Can you write your life story in 100 words.

Something I ran across. I'm going to give it a try (particularly since I've been working on memoir essays...all much more 100 words. )

http://writeyourlifestoryblog.wordpr...-in-100-words/

I'm not much impressed with the ones on that page.

Slackers! Here's mine:

He grew from the rich black dirt of Southern Oklahoma bathed in the starlight of science, fed upon man’s conquest of space and delivered in the bonds of love to a Rocky Mountain high to feast upon the computer age, the truth of creativity, creation, and communication. Following a white-hot flash of top-secret imaging in the reborn city of the sun he returned to his Mile High home produced three genetic progeny before the thirteen year affair ended and began a long journey into the heart of the world accompanied by two cats and the great literature of the world.

I'd like to think that I only had room for 50 words - you know, to leave space for everything that is still to come. And since I don't like to leave my readers with a cliff-hanger ending I won't post those 40 words yet.

Would somebody ask me, if I'd like to write memoirs at all (including somewhen in the future) I'd answer: "There's already enough boring books out there - called contemporary fiction."

I gave it a go, but decided to limit it to 50 words instead:

He came out a little red man
As a boy he was quite green
Adolescence made him blue
But he always felt so yellow
As a man he returned to red
And into calm cerulean
But now he's turning grey
And from here it's only shades

I was born

I went to High School and met this cute girl!

I married the Cute girl. We had a perfect son and daughter.

They married great partners and gave us three perfect grandchildren.

I bought a Kobo Vox!

Need i say anymore?
