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.

How do you spend insomnia-ruled nights?

by LucidDreamer on November 17, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Life-long insomniac...used to play the flute, read and drive. Flute is loaned out, am out of unread books and gas is pricey, so now the internet is where I go. Recently learned how to count in Mayan thanks to a 'stumbledupon' site....useless new skill, but it did pass the time :)
