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.

What do boys want for Valentine's?

by ShellDeFelice on January 22, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

No fair saying just obliterate the holiday. I love Valentine's day...it shouldn't be this gift performance anxiety or any kind of jr. high floral show competition. If you are a guy, what's the best gift you've been given or wished you'd been given? Or for the girls, what gifts have you given that got the best reception.
