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.

Crafting a cookbook. Must steal recipes!

by H2point0 on December 5, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My husband has a stack of recipes he's collected on wrinkled printer paper and they are held together by a binder clip. My kids and I want to take the recipes (they have notes) and republish them in a nice book format so he can flip to a page instead of messing with a hundred unbound pages.

Any advice?
