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.

Momma can't kiss-n-make-better her broken heart.

by accidentaltourist on May 25, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My beautiful, talented, brilliant daughter is in the process of uprooting her life--relocating, changing jobs, looking for housing, making new connections--for the man she was planning a future with. She was bubbling with the possibilities of a really great job, and called to tell him she was coming to the area for an interview this weekend. He called back to say "I don't love you."

I can't fix that....but oh, if only I could.

(and yes, I know hyphens are a cheat)
