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.

Moving again. Two weeks. Location unknown.

by Wench on November 12, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

We finally decided that being jobless back home is better than being jobless here. His best man thinks he can get him work with his ambulance company. It's overnight, but it's with two old friends from school. I don't know where we'll move. We may end up having to live in my mother-in-law's spare bedroom for a few weeks. If so, cross your fingers for my sanity. In fact, do that anyway because we have to repack our lives again in the next two weeks. This has been insanity.
