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.

I never wear THAT in public.

by accidentaltourist on December 27, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I realized it as I was folding laundry....something has changed in my wardrobe, or in my outlook. Many things I might have thrown on to run out to the store in the past, I won't now. Today's acknowledgment was hoodies....both pullover and zip-up. I own several, but it's a very rare day that I wear them outside the house.
