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.

Remember to bring your own chopsticks!

by koomah on September 26, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I carry portable chopsticks in a case with me when I go out to eat (not always Asian food either!)and I have for the past 10 years. An insane amount of trees are cut down every year to make disposable wooden chopsticks for restaurants around the world. There are group/organizations that encourage folks to bring chopsticks with them to restaurants. Some groups even sell portable chopsticks with cases you can purchase.
