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.

Wasn't today supposed to be magical?

by soularcher on November 11, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

You know, all that stuff about 11/11/11. I guess I did believe that today should have been special, somehow. I still do, I suppose. But looking back, it was just an ordinary Friday, an ordinary hang-out, a slightly stressfull day like any other.
I'm still waiting for the magic to happen. And the minutes pass, one by one, each of them bringing me nearer to the most magical second on Earth: 11/11/11 at 11:11:11 p.m. Will I get my secret wish?
