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.

I will do better with you.

by Edy_Offner on January 1, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My 4 year old has been having trouble with behavior this year. Sometimes I'm so mad at her, I just want to ignore her or I'll say something too mean and feel bad for it later. This year I want to help her feel better about her life, instead of making matters worse by making her feel like I may not love her as much as I used to before she misbehaved so much. This year I want to do better with her, whether she gets better or not, because that's what she deserves.
