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.

Little Man and the Sweet Kisses.

by Wench on January 29, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I can't believe how quickly he's growing up. This morning, he careened across the bed at top speed, practically crashing into my face. He stopped at the very last second and very gently leaned in to give me a kiss.

Where this whirlwind of energy came from, I don't know. He keeps me busy, for certain. But every moment is worth it for the love that he brings to our family.
