A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

I've lost my 100th memoir virginity!

by ANaturalBarbieDoll on November 17, 2015   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

100 six word memoirs equal 600 words! (This post is #102!) As I collect my imaginary virtual reward, I would like to thank my right thumb for working countless hours through pain and sometimes cramping. Sorry about the bitten nail incident. I'd also like to thank my cerebral cortex for continously letting me take credit for her work. Sorry for the plagiarism hun, I'll hook you up with a couple hours of sleep as payment. A big thanks goes out to the six community for suffering through my long drawn out back stories. I promise you will get those hours back in the after life. (At least I think that's how it works, if not my bad.) Last but certainly not least, I would like to thank the overly cocky but likeable love of my life for taunting me to join by rejecting my six ideas for his page and thinking he is the more witty of us two. I'm coming for you buddy, six words at a time xoxo! All jokes aside, I'm really enjoying this new digital addiction.
