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.

Under the sea I'd rather be.

by Layne on February 2, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I'm currently on vacation in Aruba, so hello from the caribbean! Today I was reunited with my one true love, the water. Nothing is more tranquil than the deafening silence the sea yields while you are totally submerged. Its a 30 second escape from the world on land. No sound, no thoughts, no people. Completely natural. It's most definitely a form of magic down there. I can't explain it; its just where i feel most at home.
