A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

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.

Create Art for Yourself... Not Others.

by keepsakescrafts on January 4, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Last year my word for 2010 was 'CREATE'. I started exploring with my Muse, I dipped my toes into new mediums and forms I'd never tried before, I also learned to STOP trying to make things to please others. Art comes from my heART... each piece is a small part of me. Once I stopped trying to please or emulate others my works took on a life of their own and even started to get recognized. I was asked to join Design Teams and to take part in other artistic endeavors. But no matter what... my ART is still from me and for me First.
