This past fall, She Writers from around the world were abuzz with our "Why I Write" Six Word Memoir Contest.  The winner, Amy Hartl Sherman, wrote this beauty which became our newest She Writes t-shirt:  "Write it down. Set it free."

 

Now, it's time to dig in to that box of chocolates and your imagination once again:  In theme with Valentine's Day, SMITH Magazine has invited She Writes members to weigh in on how YOU sum up Love & Heartbreak in 6 Words.

 

What say you, wise and witty She Writers?  We can't wait to hear your pithy insights!

 

**Also, for any She Writers in NY, SMITH is hosting "Married by Elvis. Divorced by Friday": A Six-Word Memoir Story Slam on Love & Heartbreak" tonight, Monday, Feb. 14th, at the 92Y Tribeca.

Love is blind; got laser surgery

Loved at sixteen. Married him. Damn.
"don't it always go that way"

Give it back. All of it.

Isabelle, brilliant!
Manhattan waited.  Cancer didn't.  He's gone.

This is actually a (slightly edited) Beatles lyrics, so I can't claim it as my own:

 

Let it out. Let it in. 

Love lives long, feed it well.
Sometimes real love isn't about you.
We're all engaged to be engaged.
He died. Okay? I said it.
At least there were no children
