About Six-Word Questions

Six Word Memoirs brings you an entirely new kind of six-word experience: Six-Word Questions. This is the place to pose a question to the Six Word community from, "What are your favorite Six-Word quotations" to challenging members to pen Six-Word Obituaries to the recently departed to Six-Word jokes and any other Six-Word question you can dream up. You can even request that the responses be in six words. Everyone has a question—what's yours?
