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.

Teaching her to fight off boys.

by WordNerd45 on April 9, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is my daughter, Anna. She is in the 8th grade, and as you can see, naturally beautiful. However, she is still naive and immature. We've enrolled her in martial arts to teach her self confidence, poise and how to defend herself from unwanted attention from hormonally overcharged boys. She is following in my footsteps (mom). Together, mom and daughter can be the official "ass kickers" in the family.
