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.

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.
