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.

Milking cash cow at both ends.

I live in an area of the country where a certain new industry is generating a lot of publicity. There are many voices on both sides of the battle. My ground is neutral, I prefer it that way because of my job in the media. But last night I had a chance conversation with a colleague and realized that she is not only reaping the benefits of the job boom (via her husband's fantastic increase in available work), but she also is part of a lawsuit filed against the industry for alleged damages.

Wow. Talk about hypocrisy.
