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.

I'm WHISTLING more: a friend gives.

by Dhani on September 17, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

True Memoir: A friend who has put me in his will (he's a year older & much healthier than me!) recently decided that I didn't have to wait till he died to benefit from his largesse, & has now allowed me to withdraw each month from his account 1000 pesos ($80 USD) so I'm whistling more.

I LOVE: Money/ Sex/ Love/ & God, (inspired by the New Age Thriller 'Conversations With God An Uncommon Dialogue' by Neale Donald Walsch, where giving & receiving are one & the same.)
