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.

T-day dinner: new recipes or same-old-same?

by accidentaltourist on November 12, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I always think I want to try something new and different...but when the day comes, I make the same stuffing my mother did, the same three kinds of pies, the same sweet potatoes with marshmallows, the same sweet breads and brown-n-serve rolls. I have tried substituting new items, one at a time...doesn't fly. And the one year we didn't have banana bread? You would have thought the world had ended. My kids still aren't over it.

How about you?
