Sorry, I promised a book giveaway months ago and here it finally is!
It All Changed in an Instant is a collection of six-word memoirs, penned by authors known and unknown. Some of the more famous who stepped up to this daunting task include: Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris, Suze Orman, and Tony Hawk. The biographical blurbs are honest, open and run the spectrum of serious to hilarious to poignant and inspiring. All wrapped up into one book, it's an easy, enjoyable read and fun to just flip through and read aloud with someone.
Here are a few that made me laugh:
The miserable childhood leads to royalties. Frank McCourt
Normal person becomes psychotic on Twitter. Robin Slick
She left me for the librarian. Chris Clark
And a few that gave me pause:
Never second guessed my own instincts. Shepard Fairey
I've done it all except hear. Marlee Matlin
With deep roots, branches soar skywards. Jonathan Blum
Only I define who I am. Montel Williams
Former boss: "Writing's your worst skill!" Amy Tan
Leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway. I'll draw a winner in two weeks: Friday, April 9th.
