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.

Trapped: cubicle cage dead end desk.

by Create2Write on August 23, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The florescent lights make me want to scream. The dull beige cubicle cage is closing in. My coworker is running her mouth about something insignificant and I dont feel like doing my "job" paper pushing. All I want to do is apply for a REAL career (All on company time). This is most certainly a dead end desk. How can I be here with a Masters Degree?! This must be hell. I HAVE TO ESCAPE!
