Ever look up, and see that the month has passed you by?

6 words graphicSeptember was supposed to be self-improvement month. Thirty days has September, as the rhyme goes … which means today’s D Day for the month. How’d you grade out?

Me? I’m about as far from ending the Month of Self Improvement on a good note as the Colorado Rockies are to meaningful October baseball. I’d so like a do-over.

Y’all did good, though.

Every month, I compile a post called “6 Words.” Ernest Hemingway inspired it when he said any story can be told in a six-word sentence. I ask bloggers, friends, strangers, and a few strange blogger friends to respond to a prompt.

September is Self-Improvement Month. What’s one thing you’d like to upgrade about yourself, in six words?
