SixContest Winners! Our top 6 “firsts” in six words

Top Six “Past and Future: ‘Firsts’ in Six”

We are constantly adding a range of experiences to our lists of “firsts.” Whether it’s your first time driving, your first time moving to a new city, or your first child, Six-Word Memoir writers had plenty to share in SixContest #156, which asked about past and future “firsts.”

Our romantic writers wrote about their first experiences with love (“First love was my best friend.” – Gridly25 and “Incomplete chapter, love’s bond never fades.” –AlexLovern). Our humorists explored their comedic side (“Mistakes don’t count when it’s summer.” – bsellers and “First time driving… hit three curbs.” – swimmingdog). Many six word scribes shared important realizations that they had for the first time (“It’s your future, your happiness matters.” – Kmarie. and “The future changes, not the past.” – thegreatbigelephant). Some considered “firsts,” they shared hopes of initial offerings still to come (“Dreams of traveling across the globe.” – 5stanislawski and “It’s your future, your happiness matters” – Kmarie.). And Sixer AROD offers one “first” everyone in this community surely knows:First six-word published. I was ecstatic.”
