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.

Took a close look at snowflakes.

At 3 am, I arrived home from work. As I crunched up the walk way I was dazzled by the glint of diamond on fresh fallen snow. I stopped and picked up a handful, looking for the beautiful shapes of individual flakes.
Thinking back to the time when snow was a wonder, and excitement instead of a dread filled drive through danger filled traffic.
I will stick with the child like wonder ; )
