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.

Wish I could workout without results.

I wrote this, submitted it, then was very close to deleting it as i first wrote "jacked. Its too bad I'm female." This is my biggest insecurity. I live a highly athletic lifestyle that calls for highly developed muscles. Specifically, I pole vault which requires super human strength. I love what I do, but boys at school look at me weird sometimes... Nobody likes the girl that can outdo them physically. I wish it didn't look so obvious, and maybe I only notice because I'm hyper sensitive. Still, I don't like the way it looks even if I love the feeling of a workout.
