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.

Doing What I'm Meant To Do

by MightyNovelist on June 28, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I am happy and complete when I am writing the stories I know I was born to tell... This is one of them. It's starting small but moving fast and I am more than satisfied with it. I have found a passion for these particular characters that I did not know I would develop for them. That is how I know, as a writer, that their story is one that needs to be shared.
