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.

Handyman hero, fixed missus broken purse.

by ciofki on June 28, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

To be honest, it is a cheap purse, and the strap broke from body, but she adores the thing. One leather rated needle, 6 feet of black thread, and viola, instant repair...(just add 30 minutes) Suddenly, I'm a hero again. Tomorrow, I'll be a no good typical boor of a man, but today, I bask in the glory.
