STURBRIDGE — Can you describe your life in only six words?

It's a challenge that students and staff at Tantasqua Regional Junior High School accepted this month as part of the school's celebration of Literacy Week.

Six-word memoirs have gained popularity worldwide over the last six years, as several books have been devoted to the subject while hundreds of famous celebrities, politicians and athletes have tried their luck at summarizing their lives in half a dozen words. Some of them divided their allotted word count into short phrases; others composed six-word sentences. Regardless of the style, it's definitely a task that is easier said than done.
