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.

Ever hold Sixes for certain times?

by ADHDean on August 22, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

If I compose a Six that I think will have impact, sometimes I wait a while before posting it... especially if I've posted several that day or if there is a surge of really good stuff at the moment and I don't want it to get lost in the shuffle. For example: I came up with something last night, but I haven't entered it yet because I don't want it too close to the random word of the day. Is that vanity or selfishness, or maybe just plain silliness? Do you ever do this?
