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.

Knock on the door. Ask...

by MO_Thoughts2 on October 27, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My dad died when I was a baby. I've heard a few snippets about him, but not much. There are two pictures of him that I know of, but haven't seen in years. He would be in in 70's now. Yesterday, I found out that an acquaintance is married to one of my dad's best friends. I've seen this man walking around town with his dogs for years and have shared the nodded passing. I so want to knock on their door and listen to some stories.
