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.

We lovingly call her "Baby Giraffe."

by accidentaltourist on December 6, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The elder of my two daughters. She's tall and slim, and all legs. She's built like a ballerina, she looks like she should be graceful and elegant on the stage, whether in a tutu or tap shoes.

Alas, no....she is dedicated and determined to do well, and practices very hard....but her long slender limbs get tangled and sometimes look as if they are bending in the wrong direction when she dances.

Poor Baby Giraffe.
