Note: We’ve updated our “March Madness” prompt to reflect the madness that has overtaken the world. For the modified SixContest #132, we want to know about your life in the time of Corona. How are you connecting to others in this new paradigm? What books are you reading, shows streaming, podcasts devouring? Have you created new family games, taken up online cooking, yoga, or learning the guitar with the help of an instructor Zoom-ing into your home? What parts of life before Covid-19 will you be glad to leave behind? Have you had any pleasant surprises or personal revelations? And what is the world you think we will wake up to when the pandemic is over: a new utopia or dystopia?

We want to hear about your life during Coronatime in six words. You can include an image with your story (your new home office or social-distanced street party?), as well as a backstory (and also submit your entry as a Six-Word Memoir and include the link with your contest submission). Share as many stories as you like, but do post only one entry per comment. The prize will be an exclusive Six-Word Memoir keychain!

Remember to tag us and include #LifeDuringCoronaInSixWords when posting your Six Words to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

p.s. Many of you have asked about Jimmy Fallon’s #MyQuarantineInSixWords prompt. Quick backstory: A few years ago, Six-Word Memoirs was featured in Oprah (O) Magazine (https://bit.ly/sixinoprah), including a challenge to O readers. After the issue came out, editor Gayle King was on Fallon and talked about what a blast the Six-Word Memoir challenge was. Fallon jumped on the six-word bandwagon and occasionally tweets six-word challenges to his Twitter followers and we are thrilled that millions of people still have fun with it. And yes: We’d love a note of credit, and a nod to the community that made it fly. But I guess memories, like some of the best stories, are short.
