Writing my Memoirs
Listening to CBC radio this morning, I heard a tale of an woman's father, who delights in his newfound writing passion. He decides to write an autobiography, but after being guided to the word count function on his computer, realizes he's written 78 words, and has already gotten to the part where he got fired from his job at 32 years old. His daughter jokingly suggests that maybe he should consider condensing his autobiography to few choice words and compose a haiku instead. It got me thinking: writing memoirs has always sounding like a dull and daunting task, but in the form of a haiku it might not be so bad. So, I'm working on it. In the mean time, what does your Autobiographical Hiaku sound like?
