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.

Resolved to change four days earlier.

It's great to sit around all day but after a few days of nothing I don't know what to do with myself. Therefore I've decided to start my New Years resolution(s) early.
1) start eating better
2) stop calling my sister "retarded"
3) stop watching so much tv
4) keep my habitat cleaner
5) less negative thoughts
6) less hateful words
7) stop trying, just start doing
8) more physical activity, less sitting
9) less fighting with my mother

To top it off, I plan to document it and record the struggles that come with it. This ain't going to be easy.
