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.

Did I mention I walk barefoot?

by Layne on January 15, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

As much as possible. It's illegal in schools, but I got through the day like this once:) I feel so much more connected, down to earth, and just different when I'm barefoot. It's harder in the wintertime but most other months, I only wear shoes when I desperately need to, like grocery shopping when other shoppers would be minded by my attire.
The park, around town, while running; fair game.
