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.

Asperger's makes dad more like child.

by LydiaG on April 2, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

We discovered my dad had Asperger's Syndrome after a lifetime of being misunderstood by his teachers, parents, friends, and family. He is a very sweet soul, but, as it typical of Asperger's, he has encyclopedic knowledge about 2-3 topics and is a little absent regarding everyday life. I feel protective of him, instead of the other way around.
