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.

A mother always trys better parenting

by Kayla92 on October 31, 2016   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

hard to be the patient mother i want to be. It takes hard work to stay clam and explain to my kids new things that i think they should understand, and already know. I have to remember my kids are learning everyday. If i want them to be a certain way I need to teach them that way. It is a challenge to teach my kids different from how i was raised growing up. I want better for my kids.
