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.

"time-saving devices" waste so much time.

by elljay on January 25, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

almost no technological device has ever performed as well as their marketing materials suggested they would, and quite often the really simple things (like online banking or printing a pdf from a tablet) can ruin a perfectly good day... And for the love of jeebus my smart phone facilitates some seriously idiotic time wasting; it's downright Orwellian the thought crime that is the "smart phone" ... I mean it's useful but it is not making me smarter. Remember when people couldn't get in touch with you unless you we're home?
