Smith Magazine started its six-word memoir project in 2006. Over the years, they’ve published several anthologies of these memoirs by “authors famous and obscure”.

So, at a glance, you could see your “one line” for any single day for five years. I instantly thought of the six-word memoirs, and how fun it would be to write a six-word memoir for each day and compare them after five years.
