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.

Time to create Face-It Book, reality.

by DynamicDbytheC on June 24, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I told my friend that often it is all the vacation, wedding, party pictures that get shown on Face-book. I never talk about the REAL stuff on the site and many at Smithmag know more about my struggles and cancer battles than "friends" on Facebook. I told him, let's create Face-It book or F^%$-It Book where people vent and get real. Actually, I like it the way it is.
