This is an altered version of a swap hosted by @AlyssD and she has given me permission to host it here. I thought it would be a great, fun swap for this group!
This swap is inspired by the book: “Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure” (Harper Collins, 2008).
Here's the twist...it's NOT YOUR MEMOIR. Pick one of your favorite characters from a YA book and write a six-word memoir from his or her point of view. :-) You will write their memoir in only 6 words on the back of a postcard and send it to two partners. Six words—no more, no less. Postcard is sender’s choice.
Think of the character's life and sum it up in 6 words…it’s easier said than done…but fun!
For inspiration, look at this site Here are some great ones:
Painful nerd kid, happy nerd adult. - Linda Williamson
Extremely responsible, secretly longed for spontaneity. - Sabra Jennings
The psychic said I'd be richer. - Elizabeth Bernstein
• Write a memoir from a character's point of view from a YA novel using 6 words (no more, no less)
• Write the title of the book and the character's name
• Write the memoir on a PC of your choice
• Send PC to your two (2) partners
Group guidelines apply. I will angel this if necessary. Newbies welcome. Don't just jot down six words. Put some thought into this…it should be super fun & interesting.
If this swap goes well, I might make it a series...there are SO many books and characters I want to do! :-)
