February 2014

For our second “backstory” challenge on, we’ve turned to two celebrated Six-Word scribes for inspiration on topics of love and heartbreak. Begin your "backstory" of 600 words or less with one of these two Six-Word Memoirs from writer and MacArthur “Genius Grant” winner George Saunders or celebrity divorce lawyer Raoul Felder:

“What were once two, are one.” —George Saunders “Love almost always leads to heartbreak.” —Raoul Felder, Esq. We’ll send the winner three books of his or her choice from the Six-Word book series—and invite you to tell your story at a future Six Words Live story show. • How to submit: 1.
