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.

Seedling now grown into mighty Sunflower.

by Kyms on November 17, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

After a rough beginning I am turning my life into what I want it to be. This includes becoming involved in the things that I am passionate about; women's rights, abused children, the homeless are just a few things I am involved in. There were times I was afraid to do anything and I'm sure it stemmed (no pun intended) from my upbringing. But now I see that mighty Sunflower, face to the sun, ready to tackle whatever I choose to. This is my life. PS: should have been in life category :)
