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.

How much information is too much?

by Bevvie on January 27, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

This is sort of a different way of asking one of my previous questions. When I taught, students (college)would sometimes reveal personal info during discussions (especially in lit classes when they identified with the characters). Sometimes I felt that they revealed too much that was very personal.
