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.

Just seven days of freedom left...

by MissIncognito on August 8, 2017   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Seven days. Wow. It seems like the summer went by so fast. I have mixed feelings about going back to school. I'm happy because I get to see my friends again and school just excites me in general. But on the other hand, it seems like every year the pile of homework gets bigger and bigger and free time becomes shorter and shorter. Another disadvantage is that I'll have much less time to spend writing six word memoirs. :(
