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.

Beware the scab-pickers. Out for blood.

by accidentaltourist on January 10, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

You know who they are...those people who are well aware of your hurts and where they lie. And because they are privy to the information, they feel they have the right to pick at your very personal wounds, dig out whatever ugliness they can find, and leave you raw and bleeding. In the name of "friendship"...in the name of "love."
