So Julia’s literary agent (ha!) apparently asked if Julia wanted to contribute to the next six-word memoirs book.
This is perfect for everyone’s favorite wide-mouthed muppet, considering she is utterly incapable of stringing more than 10 words together on most posts (if any at all).
The concept, if you are unfamiliar, is fairly self-explainable: simply write your life story in six words.
She posted a Facebook video of her reading an email from her agent and surmising what her six-word memoir would be. Of course, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Julia Allison, who was on the short-list for the Booker Prize last year, failed to come up with six measly words to summarize her sad, lonely, yet highly-documented existence. Then she posted this gem to her real-time-memoir NonSociety:
“Carrie Bradshaw bought laptop, started blog.”
She is totally treating this like a gig. After all, the editors of this series would be honored for her well thought out contribution. She’s in demand! She goes to meetings! She takes field trips to PR agencies! SHE’S FUCKING JULIA ALLISON, PEOPLE!
Too bad Julia fails to mention that ANYONE can submit their memoir for inclusion in the book.
