Organizing in Six Words

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinby feather

I love haiku, aphorisms and any short, sweet writing form. Last year I saw the book Not Quite What I Was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure and was enchanted and amused. Jay Hamilton-Roth wrote today about using six words as a marketing tagline and gave this example for an insurance agent:

Boring insurance. Sudden catastrophe. Lucky me.

I decided to try it:

Need it? Love it? Be honest.

Piles grow. You despair. Stuff wins.

What do you think? More fun, more intriguing than a standard tagline?
