National Poetry Month: Day 23

Memoryhouse has recently been collecting six-word memoirs from the UChicago community and now, to celebrate National Poetry Month, we are sharing them with you! We will be publishing two six-word memoirs every day in April along with fun writing prompts to inspire you to write your own six-word memoir, poetry, or autobiography. Want to share your six-word story with the world? Email us at chicagomemoryhouse@gmail.com or Facebook us. To submit longer pieces visit our Submit page.

It’s easy to slip into a bad attitude, and even easier once you’re there to stew in all that negativity. For most it’s a passing phase, but for some it can color their whole outlook on life. Would you describe yourself as a cynic? If not, do you know someone who fits the bill? Today, write down what happens to you using a cynical perspective. If you keep a journal, compare today’s entry with those of previous—perhaps more positive—days and note the similarities and differences in style, tone, and word usage.
