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.

Father at 49. "Dad" at 53.

by Steve__Anthony on May 31, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Had another one of those damn birthdays on Monday, Memorial Day. --- I was awaken by my son with a fist-full of balloons yelling "Wake-up Dad." -- It was the first time he had called me "dad." For a birthday present I asked him to keep calling me "daddy." --- Then we played with all the Hot Wheels cars he had gotten for my birthday.
