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.

Christmas creeping across globe like mist.

by accidentaltourist on December 23, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Ever feel like Christmas sneaks up on you? Why are we always surprised by it...it comes on exactly the same date every year.

Where I live, it is the morning of the day before Christmas Eve, and the news media is full of last-minute shopping tips and holiday dos and don'ts. But this morning as I am racing the clock to finish the last of my homemade gifts (hopefully!), I am thinking about family and friends on the other side of the globe who have already edged much closer to the magical moment of Christmas.

Happy holidays and many blessings, my friends across the world. May you know joy and peace and the simple pleasures of love and light in the coming year.
