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.

We all have warts. Love us?

by accidentaltourist on January 24, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

A new romance. A budding friendship. Both can be love at first sight. We meet, we are attracted, and we are in love. We see only the beauty.

But as we get to know each other, learn the histories, get introduced to families and closet skeletons, the warts start to show. But still, we love. And we say, "I have seen your warts, and still, I love you....in spite of them."

But true intimacy...true, endless, life-long love....that comes when we can say, "You have warts, but I love you, not in spite of, but BECAUSE of them."
