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.

How Much Trust We Are Given

by MightyNovelist on July 5, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

With such precious little lives...

This little one was pretty wild and untrusting just a few days ago... adopted from a farm several miles away from me. But he looked me in the eyes in a special way and I took a risk and took him home.

Now, little "Hunter" is appreciative, sweet, kind and loving, and always happy to see us in the morning. In such a short time, he has become so attached... He's so tiny and young at barely 8 weeks. What a precious little life we now care for.
