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.

Self-destruction= Food in replacing words out.

I'm sure I'm not alone in this battle so I thought I'd share what I just posted on a friend's FB post regarding eating a yummy vegan lunch:

I just ate a goddamned donut then 6-worded it so I would hold myself accountable: Self-destruction= Food in replacing words out.

I'm going to throw away all of this leftover holiday bullshit and head for the carrots like I normally would. Thanks for reminding me that good food is GOOD food :)
