On Day Two of the Six-Word Festival on Twitter, Sesame Street brought us back to childhood and the ABCs of life. There was no napping this afternoon as your Six-Word letters came pouring in! One of our published memoirists, Jimmy Wales, (“Yes, you can edit my biography” from Not Quite What I Was Planning) shared his letter to the past. Real Simple Magazine, comedian Abbi Crutchfield, and novelist Mary Pat Hyland joined in on the fun as well!

You shared volumes of Six-Word Memoirs about what you should’ve done, could’ve done, and what you would never do again. They ranged from playful and comical to sentimental and even regretful. But most of all, your tweets showed that you’ve matured and grown…we suspect Sesame Street had a hand in that!
We loved all of your letters—here are six of our favorites:
