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.

gift to myself: no politics today.

of course i don't believe in being uninformed, deliberately ignorant of what's going on in this country and the world. but just for today, just this one day, i'm taking a vacation from it. no cnn, no huffington post or network news; skipping to the comics in the papers. it'll all still be there tomorrow :-)
