The Filament Blog


We all suffer from a profound case of “Idea Surplus Disorder” at Filament — and we think that’s a good thing. Here are some of those ideas we’d like to share with you.



Your Six Word New Year Story

Inspired by Hemingway’s famous short, short story: “For Sale. Baby Shoes. Never Worn,” Smith Magazine asks if you can tell your “life story” in just six words?

While writing your entire life's story in six words might be hard, what about focusing on just one year's worth?  

Even better, since it's nearly "resolution" time, how would you use just six words to write about the year you're about to have? 

Here's ours: Opened Filament and changed the world.

Give it a shot, and leave your six words in the comments below.
