SixContest #78: #MySixWordSpoiler

Summer offers the perfect time to dive into books and binge-watch favorite shows... and hope that no one spoils the plot before we finish! In her new memoir, "A Series of Catastrophes & Miracles," author Mary Elizabeth Williams details her experience with metastatic melanoma—a “rapidly fatal” form of cancer commonly known as Stage IV—with triumph and wit. Before the first chapter, Williams kicks off her story with “SPOILER: I lived.” For SixContest #78, we want to hear the spoiler to your story in just six words. We'll give you the first word and you do the rest: “SPOILER: ___ ___ ___ ___ ___”

**Please, no spoilers of novels, shows or films—stick to the stories you know best…you and yours.**

Your Six Words can include a backstory (we love reading them), but please post only one entry per comment.

Remember to tag us and include #MySixWordSpoiler when posting your Six Words to Twitter (@SixWords) and Instagram (@SixWordSelfie).

EDITOR'S NOTE: The TOP SIX entries will each receive a copy of "A Series of Catastrophes & Miracles!"


This SixContest now runs through Friday, 6/24 until 3:00PM EDT. Submit your entries in the comments below or on our social media pages: (remember to tag @sixwords) | | |
