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.

I fear blow-dryers more than computers.

I never learned the fine art of the Farrah Fawcett blow-out. The best I can hope for is not dripping when I leave the house. However, unlike about half my generation, I can Facebook, sixword, copy, paste, word process, and spreadsheet with the best of them....not to mention surf for everything from backseam hosiery to cheap airline tickets.
