Six Word Memoirs

Here's a New Yorker article on the book, Not Quite What I Was Planning. I might be behind the curve on this, but I just found out about these things, and I'm all excited! Write a memoir in exactly six words. What could be more LJ?

Here's my first one:

Girl drummer eventually became PTA president.

See! It's easy. And: fun!

I think we should expand out into biography and do all the Buffyverse characters! Who's with me?

Here's a quick Faith: Evil didn't work. Slaying doesn't suck.

Giles: Misspent youth was a good foundation.

Lorne: Followed my heart, sang it out.

I admit, Spike's got me stumped. Too many years to sum up? Hey! That was six words! Yahtzee!

Spike: Plays the part. His women lead. ??

Anya would be fun to do one for...

Good one!

Here's an Anya:

Vengeance ultimately didn't solve my problems.

Oh, that looks like so much fun, and yours are awesome. It would be a hoot to do a whole slew of Buffyverse bios.

My brain is not really cooperating with me this week, but I have a Spike one. Also, there should probably be at least twenty memoirs for Spike; he's a complicated dude!

Redemption: it's not just for ponces.

Most excellent! You got his voice and everything, in just six words. *happy sigh* Of course, Spike is the trickiest, but oh so worthy of exploration. I want more!
