So how about it? Want to take a shot at it and leave a six word memoir in the comment section? C'mon you can do it?
We're getting really close to the end of the 2016 A to Z blogging challenge. Have you visited many blogs? I admit I started off pretty good. I intended to meet lots of new bloggers, but my plan didn't work out. I fell hard for some that I visited right off the bat and needed to go back each day for repeat visits. I still managed to visit a few new blogs every few days, but the numbers decreased each day as life, kids, writing and my husband's surgery and family life got in the way. Then I even slacked off the blogs I was initially visiting on a pretty regular basis. All I can say is that it wasn't for lack of trying or for lack of interest. I hope I can return to more frequent visits soon.

What's —  your  — Six — Word —  life—  story?
