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.

2 good days in a row!

by Hannahmo on February 29, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Yesterday I had a library meeting and told a funny (heart related) joke that even had the librarian red in the face. And today I made a joke in french (la pate/pasta) that had the whole class cracking up. Later today (math class) I admitted to liking internet memes. I haven't had a good day in awhile and having 2 good days in a row is even better! :)
