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.

Helicoptor Mom: land that craft now!!

by TawnyPort on September 17, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I helped my BFF Maureen's son off to college some 250 miles away in mid-August for football camp. She insisted on visiting him this past weeekend, but we received the bum's rush, after a quick shopping trip to Walmart and lunch. Maureen didn't expect him to be so independent and well adjusted. She needs to find something else to do, besides obsessing about her son and retail therapy..and dragging me on long trips to places we are no longer needed.
