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.

Restrict politicians to six-word utterances only.

by RedStickWriter on September 7, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Implementation would require getting rid of the silly I-approve-this-message tags as you can see:

I’m Mitt Romney, and I approve this message. - Disallowed for two excess words.

I’m Barack Obama, and I approve this message. - Disallowed for two excess words.

However, once we get over that heartbreak, the political stuff would be reduced enough to make room for more commercial enlightenment about douches and hemorrhoid preparations.
