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.

May be missing my last performance.

by BecomingLuke on December 13, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Tonight is my class's last performance of the semester, and therefore my last since I'm withdrawing at semester. Due to recent health announcements to my teachers I am on probation on whether I will be allowed to perform tonight, I won't find out until I get there if I will be performing 2 songs, 4 or none. I have to prove that I know the songs and that I'll be able to stand long enough for the sets, if I either don't know the songs or can't stand long enough I'll be working backstage.
