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.

Please don't make me go back.

by Layne on January 1, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I've been off on Christmas break for the past 10 days. School starts again tomorrow. I'm not ready to go back though. I know ten days is a long time and I shouldn't be complaining but, I don't want to go back to all that stress. I don't want to get five hours of sleep every night. I don't want to cry in the bathroom stall during class. I hate school. I'm scared.
