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.

SMITHMag snowstorm predicted for Connecticut kids!

If you haven't read Tawnyport's backstory (and by the lack of a significant number of comments, my guess is that most of you haven't), you probably don't know that he is the director of cafeteria services for the New Town, CT school system. In another memoir that he posted he told of a request for snowflakes to decorate the new, temporary school for the Sandy Hook Elementary kids. There's an address to send them to. They're talking about the cut paper snowflakes that we learned to cut out when we were kids. I think it would be a lovely gesture for SmithMag members to each make and send six snowflakes to the school. The Sandy Hook incident touched everyone in this country but it literally grabbed one of our own and shook his world. I, for one, would like to show support for a fellow community member. I'll put the address and the memoir in the comment box for those who may be willing to participate.
