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.

"Who told you I was looking?!"

by accidentaltourist on December 4, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

There are people in my life who persist in sending me emails or facebook messages...or calling on the phone, even...to say "so-and-so is hiring." And then they will give me a lengthy discourse on the work, the place, the potential, and how suited for the position I would be and vice versa.

I'm sorry....I have a job. And I like my job. Really.
