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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

SIX WORD » QUESTIONS

What will you do this summer?

by lillybrook on January 11, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


This question was posed by a colleague today. In the academic world, this is a legitimate question: January is the time to apply for sabbaticals, research grants, institutes, workshops, and -- in many cases -- pitch courses to teach in summer term. But I found myself speechless as I pondered his question: what will I do with summer? In the end, I replied, "Ooh... that's a dangerous question. Utter your plans aloud and hear God laugh, right? I honestly don't know."

But I'd love to hear your plans, if you are looking ahead to summer, Smith community.
