Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure (Revised and Expanded Deluxe Edition) : Deceptively simple and surprisingly addictive, Not Quite What I Was Planning is a thousand glimpses of humanity - six words at a time. When Ernest Hemingway famously wrote, "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn," he proved that an entire story can be told using a half-dozen words. When the online storytelling magazine SMITH asked readers to submit six-word memoirs, they proved a whole, real life can be told this way, too. The results are fascinating, hilarious, shocking, and moving.
