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.

Broken Heart. Upset family. Finally Happy.

by Choperson on January 23, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This summer, I moved down to Texas to stay until I started what would hopefully be my last year of college. I ended up living first with my fiance's friends and then his family when he went back to school and I stayed. Well in September or October, he broke off the engagment. My family expected me to move back to Montana and I decided to stay and live my own life.
