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.

Chasing grandma's elusive cookie recipe... again.

by MotorCityMich on December 8, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My husband has fond memories of his Italian grandmother's chocolate spice cookies. My SIL has the recipe, but won't share. Why? Who knows. So every year I try again to find and make a recipe that will bring him those happy cookie memories. At this point it's sort of a unicorn hunt, but it's a labor of love!
