I’m fascinated by the 6 Word Memoirs over at Smith Magazine. I first heard about this project on NPR, then I saw some collected on YouTube. I haven’t figured out what my 6 Word Memoir will read yet, but I’m captivated by the idea of describing a character in one sentence. K.J. Parker does a brilliant job of it in this quote.
Segibert could best be described as a series of brief intervals between drinks. -K.J. Parker, A Small Price to Pay for Birdsong
Writing Prompt: Create a character sketch that describes the core of the character in one sentence.
